Diego Simeone wants to sign a new midfielder and Denis Zakaria is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Simeone is a long term admirer of Zakaria and believes he can get the most out of the Switzerland international.

The 22-year-old would provide a good variety to Atletico Madrid’s midfield.

According to Football Espana, “Atletico Madrid want to sign Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria. Diario AS cites a report in German outlet Express which claims the 22-year-old is on Atleti’s radar and claims that he would be available for transfer in the region of €40m. It states that English duo Manchester United and Tottenham are also interested in the Switzerland international, who transfermarkt say has a value of €28m in the current climate.”


Atletico Madrid have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the Switzerland international.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Atletico Madrid.

How strong that interest is and whether Atletico Madrid will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
