Liverpool reach agents, as Jurgen Klopp trigger interest in Swiss star
Liverpool have reached the agents of Denis Zakaria to reaffirm their enthusiasm for the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder, as indicated by reports.
Denis Zakaria has for quite some time been connected with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester United likewise connected recently.
The two Premier League rivals were credited with enthusiasm for the 23-year-old ahead of the January transfer window, however his agent precluded the chance of an exit before the finish of the period.
As indicated by Football Insider, Liverpool have reached the Switzerland international’s agents again and clarified that they are still intrigued by him.
The Reds will supposedly “intently monitor” Zakaria’s progress when he comes back from a knee injury one month from now.
Zakaria endured the injury in Monchengladbach’s last game before the mainland break on March 8 and in the wake of being re-incorporated into training toward the beginning of May, he got injured again and had to under go surgery.
The Bundesliga season proceeded at the end of the week with its second round of matches since the restart, with Monchengladbach losing 3-1 to Bayer Leverkusen.
The extended campaign is set to complete on June 27 and Liverpool are expected to watch Zakaria’s progress intently when he returns.
Liverpool were expected to be busy when the transfer window re-opens but the impact that football’s shutdown will have on the club’s funds is muddled.
The Reds’ top target is broadly accepted to be RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, who snatched hat trick in his side’s 5-0 win over Mainz on Sunday.
