Denis Zakaria has rejected the opening offer from AS Roma and the latest extension offer from Borussia Monchengladbach as he wants to join Barcelona, Diario Sport claim.
The 24-year-old’s current contract with Gladbach expires at the end of the season. Barca would be open to signing him as a free agent next summer, it’s said.
Zakaria has also attracted the interest of Juventus but he is waiting for the Catalans to make their first move.
This term so far, the Swiss international has played 5 matches for the Germans, scoring two goals and providing an assist. Mainly a defensive midfielder, Zakaria can also play at centre-back.
