Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have been tipped as the major contenders for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria despite initial interest from two Bundesliga sides Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
The two Bundesliga sides were the first clubs who picked up interest in the youngster but the recent report from Sky Sports claimed that the three Premier League sides are set to leapfrog them in the race for his services in January.
Arsenal, despite signing Torreira and Guendouzi, look very fragile at the middle of the pitch and Emery is willing to add the German to his team in January.

As for Solskjaer, his quest for more creativity and quality at the center of the park has reportedly forced him into competing with his fellow Premier League managers for the young man.
Though Liverpool appear as a strong team in every department, Jurgen Klopp believes the addition of his countryman will be an added advantage to his dream of becoming the first Liverpool manager to lift the Premier League title in 30 years.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer’s hope of signing Real Madrid wonderkid Martin Odegaard has been boosted as the player is keen on searching for regular game-time even if it means leaving the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
