Many Everton fans have been left buzzing over some transfer news on Denis Zakaria.
As per 90min, the Goodison Park club, as well as Leicester City, have now ‘reached out’ in the hope of signing the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder, while Arsenal ‘remain keen’ on the 25-year-old.
Should Everton sign Zakaria?
Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Juventus are also all interested in his signature, and he could leave on a free transfer in the summer with just six months left on his current deal at the Bundesliga club.
For a player who is currently rated at £24.3m by Transfermarkt and is only 25 years of age, signing Zakaria for free would present a real bargain for the Toffees and give Rafael Benitez another solid option in the middle of the park.
The Switzerland international has played at the highest level throughout his career, including in the UEFA Champions League, so he would certainly elevate the quality in the squad at Goodison Park.
Everton fans on Zakaria transfer news
These Toffees fans buzzed as the transfer news was shared on Twitter, with one Everton supporter even going as far as to claim that Zakaria would be a ‘perfect’ signing:
“We get him and have Doucoure, centre mid will be a rock”
“This is perfect for Everton”
“Would love him here”
“The coverage him & Doucoure would give us in the middle of the park would be unreal.”
“He is exactly the type of player we need. A proper defensive midfielder who can pick up the ball off the defence and play it forward”
“Mentioned him a long time ago and he’d be a great signing so here’s hoping”
