Denis Zakaria is about to change status. At the end of the contract next June, the Swiss international midfielder (40 caps, 3 goals) is about to leave Borussia Mönchengladbach and the Bundesliga to join Juventus Turin and Serie A.

According to the Italian media, the Piedmontese club would push to secure the services of the 25-year-old Genevan, the winter transfer window ending this Monday at midnight. The leaders of the Old Lady would have offered 7 million euros to their German counterparts, who wish to wait for the time being, to strengthen a game sector that has not met expectations since the start of the season.

Juventus must sell

To complete the transfer of the defensive half trained at Servette, Juventus Turin, 5th in Serie A, must first replenish its coffers after having emptied them on Friday to acquire the Serbian striker from Fiorentina Dusan Vlahovic (70 million euros) . She therefore hopes to sell Rodrigo Bentancur, Arthur Melo or even Dejan Kulusevski. For the first named, Tottenham and Aston Villa would be ready to pay 30 million euros.

If Denis Zakaria were to end up settling in northern Italy, the player from the Swiss team would certainly change dimension. The Genevan, at Borussia Mönchengladbach since July 2017, a club he joined after passing through Young Boys for two seasons, would have the mission of returning the most successful club in Italy (36 national titles), in withdrawal for two seasons now on the front of the stage.
