Sporting Director tells Arteta that Arsenal target is pushing for summer move

Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl has confirmed that defensive-minded midfielder Denis Zakaria is pushing to leave the club this summer.

The Gunners have already signed Nuno Tavares and Albert Sambi Lokonga, with a couple of other deals in the pipeline, as Mikel Arteta looks to build a side that is capable of getting back into those top four spots

Right now this Gunners side is not good enough to compete with the big boys and there is a feeling that Arsenal will need to spend some serious money this transfer window to evev have a chance of getting back into those top four spots, and now they have been given a boost in their chase to sign long-term target Zakaria.

The Switzerland international has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal for the last few transfer windows, but a move has not been able to get done as he showed no desire to want to leave the Bundesliga side.

However, Sporting Director Eberl has confirmed that defensive-minded midfielder is pushing to leave the club this transfer window, he was quoted on TalkSport: ‘With Denis, we have been trying to extend his contract since October.

‘Denis and his management told us pretty clearly that they would prefer a transfer this summer.’

Roundup..

Arsenal have done some business already but the signings that they have announced over the past few weeks are not really the players that will worry their rivals too much.

And that is the same for Zakaria, he is a solid player that is decent in the Bundesliga, but at the end of the day, the Premier League is another level to the German League and he may struggle to make an impact

But if Arteta is looking for depth, the right amount of money for Zakaria could be decent.
