In an official statement, the club revealed:
Denis Zakaria has informed the club of his intention to leave in the summer after five years at Gladbach. Matthias Ginter will also leave the Foals at the end of the season. “I already contacted his agent before Christmas and said that we would be planning without him from the summer at the latest,” said Eberl.
Matthias Ginter wrote on Instagram yesterday that he “wanted a new challenge in his career,” but that he would continue to give his all for the second half of the season to help the team achieve their remaining targets.
Newcastle United have been linked with potentially signing 27-year-old Ginter come the summer, as they look to rebuild under their wealthy new owners, provided that they can stay in the Premier League this time around.
Meanwhile, Arsenal and Liverpool have both been linked with moves for Zakaria in previous seasons, with the Swiss midfielder having had experience alongside Granit Xhaka in the engine room of the national team.
With the Gunners on the hunt for fresh blood in the middle of the pitch, would Zakaria on a free be a good bit of business? Or should Liverpool be looking to target him as a backup to Fabinho?
Either way. come the summer, answers will be revealed.
