Arsenal in contact with Zakaria agents

Arsenal are in contact with the agents of Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder over a potential free transfer next summer. The 25-year-old is out of contract in the summer and can sign a pre-contract agreement in January.

The Gunners want to reinforce their midfield and have been linked with a number of players in recent weeks, however Zakaria seems to be high on their list.

German website Fussball Transfers report that Arsenal have been ‘in contact’ with the agents of Zakaria and the player has told Gladbach of his intention to leave.

Manchester United and Manchester City are both reportedly interested in the player but it’s suggested that a move to the Emirates may suit the player better, given the amount of midfield competition at the Etihad.
