Liverpool are looking to sign Denis Zakaria from Borussia Monchengladbach. The 25 year old has played a crucial role for Borussia making 12 appearances. He also has one goal and an assist.
His current contract with the club will end in June 2022. According to a report from Gazzetta Dello Sport , Liverpool are leading the race to sign him. However they will face competition from other clubs as well.
Arsenal, Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus are interested as well in signing the midfielder. Monchengladbach have revealed that they are open to letting him leave during the January transfer window.
Let’s take a look at some legendary midfielders from Liverpool.
The Scousers have had a rich history in general. They can arguably be considered as the best club in the Premier League in terms of history.
Henderson was a Sunderland youth academy player and broke into Liverpool’s first team very well. He joined them in 2011 when he was 20 years old. Henderson is a club legend for sure but his success has come with the club in recent years.
Jordan does not have much technical ability but his workrate and leadership is amongst the best. When Jurgen Klopp took over in 2015 the process was a slow one but he realised that Henderson will be a key player for them. As of now he is still an important player and contributes a lot defensively as well.
Xabi Alonso is one the greatest Spanish players of all time. He joined in 2004 and his partnership with Gerrard established them as one of the best midfield duos. They even helped Liverpool reach 2 Champions League finals.
Alonso had a great passing range, long distance shot, vision , composure as a midfielder. His most crucial moment for Liverpool was when he scored a penalty against AC Milan in the Champions League final.
Gerrard was with The Scousers for 17 years, he became their best midfielder and is also regarded one of the best midfielders of all time. He has been with Liverpool even through the struggling moments. His most humiliating moment was against Chelsea when he slipped against Demba Ba who took advantage of the situation and scored the goal. If it were not for Gerrard , Liverpool would have won the Premier League title after 25 years. Despite this ,he has led the club to 3 European finals and won 2 largely because of him.
Steven Gerrard was a powerhouse and did not hesitate to take long shots. He has scored bangers and excellent volleys with Liverpool. As a midfielder his vision, passing range was also amongst the best.
