Loads of Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter are excited about the link to Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria.
Bild reported this week that Spurs are one of a number of top European clubs interested in the 22-year-old, who has been making waves for the German top flight leaders this season – according to Bundesliga.com the defensive midfielder has a passing accuracy of 88% this term.
The story adds that the north London outfit will face competition from the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Inter Milan if they want to sign the 22-year-old, who is rated at €50m (£43m).

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have certainly been lacking when it comes to keeping the ball out of their own net – especially on the road – so far this term, so they could do with a reliable player in front of the backline.
Many Spurs supporters certainly seem happy at the prospect of the club targeting Zakaria, with one individual describing him as “a massive upgrade on Dier and Wanyama”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Very good player and a massive upgrade on Dier and Wanyama, would be a class signing?

NICE! YES! We need a DM, and proper fullbacks and maybe a CB.

Now this is a sensible signing

Now we’re talking. A proper DM who can also get forward. Dier has two months to prove he deserves to be at Spurs longterm. Needs to move those feet forward and stop with the giveaways.
