Barcelona and Roma duel for Zakaria

Barcelona, Roma and Tottenham Hotspur are believed to be the main contenders for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria.

His contract with the Bundesliga club will expire at the end of the season, so a January move seems likely.

According to Spanish newspaper Sport, Barcelona are the favourites for his signature right now, although might want to wait until the summer to get him as a free agent.

Meanwhile, Tuttomercatoweb and Il Messaggero point to Roma as the primary contenders, as negotiations are already in progress, with a proposal worth €5-6m plus bonuses for the January move.

In order to make way, the Giallorossi are trying to sell Gonzalo Villar and Amadou Diawara.

Sport claim an initial Roma bid was rejected by Borussia Monchengladbach.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the Swiss international who turns 25 next month.

In five Bundesliga appearances so far this season, Zakaria has contributed two goals and one assist.

He moved from Young Boys to Borussia Monchengladbach for €12m in 2017.
