Denis Zakaria is a young defensive midfielder who has been capped 24 times for his national team.

He joined the Bundesliga side from Young Boys in 2017 for £10m. The Swiss international has since been likened to Granit Xhaka, Patrick Vieira and Paul Pogba. 

A big powerful box to box midfielder capable of tackling, passing and dribbling, Zakaria certainly has something to offer Liverpool.

 

The problem is he’d be rivaling Fabinho for a spot in Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Our Brazilian defensive midfielder has become one of the first names on the team sheet and will be difficult to move from the side.

Liverpool need to find a midfielder capable of providing a spark further up the pitch.

Denis Zakaria doesn’t fit that bill but is an impressive young talent destined for big things.

It’ll be interesting to see exactly where the midfielder ends up when when he eventually gets a big money move.
