Arsenal are set to battle neighbours Tottenham for Swiss international Denis Zakaria.
And Everton may also be ready to throw their hat in the ring for the player who has indicated that he is ready to leave Borussia Monchengladbach.
Zakari caught Covid at the end of July but has now been working hard to prove he is back to full fitness ahead of a possible transfer.
Now 24, Zakaria has been with the Bundesliga side since 2017, having joined them from Swiss club Young Boys.
The defensive midfielder before lockdown last year, was valued at £43 million, However, he has since suffered a knee injury, forcing hi miss 11 games in all competitions last season, and that means that his valuation has dropped.
This is not the first time that the player has been linked with a move to the Premier League, but there are indications this time that the player himself now wants the move.
