Manchester City have entered talks with the agent of Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria over a potential move to the Etihad Stadium next summer, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Pep Guardiola’s side were linked with an interest in the 23-year-old Swiss talent just a few days ago, with another report of concrete interest in him.

City are alleged to be preparing a bid in the region of €40 million for the player next summer.

In the same podcast, Fabrizio makes it clear the club who are talking to sign Denis Zakaria next summer in ‘the most serious way’ is Manchester City. It makes sense that Guardiola’s side are looking for a central midfielder with these type of skills, and that they also have a solid relationship with the player’s agent, Fali Ramadani can only help.

City have now entered serious talks with team, club and player as they look for a deal after monitoring him for several years now.

This would be a great move for all parties and could be wrapped up rather quickly.
