Atletico Madrid eye Gladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria

Atletico Madrid want to sign Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria, according to reports.

Diario AS cites a report in German outlet Express which claims the 22-year-old is on Atleti’s radar and claims that he would be available for transfer in the region of €40m.

It states that English duo Manchester United and Tottenham are also interested in the Switzerland international, who transfermarkt say has a value of €28m in the current climate.

The central midfielder has started all 11 matches for the Bundesliga club this campaign and has grown into a star at Gladbach after joining from Young Boys in a €12m deal back in the summer of 2017.

Zakaria - who started his professional career at Swiss club Servette - has also grown into a star at international level with Switzerland, for whom he has won 26 caps.

The report believes that a transfer away from the Bundesliga next summer could be likely.
