Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria has potentially emerged as a summer target for Roma, as the Giallorossi now look at alternatives for Granit Xhaka.
La Gazzetta dello Sport have talked about Roma’s options in midfield today, stating that there is still quite a substantial gap between Arsenal and the Giallorssi when it comes to a potential deal for Xhaka. Apart from the likes of Teun Koopmeiners and Thomas Delaney, the idea of Zakaria has also emerged now.
He is valued at €30 million by Gladbach but since his contract expires in the summer of 2022, it could help Roma strike a deal with the Foals at a lower price.
The tracks leading to Koopmeiners remain very much alive as Roma have made contact with his agent and there is a chance that a deal can be done for €18 million. Zakaria has been linked with a move to Napoli in recent days too.
