Liverpool won't make a move for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria this month, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Zakaria's contract expires at the end of the season, which means that he could be available on a free transfer next summer.

Anfield Watch Verdict
Zakaria is a fine talent. The midfielder has been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 6.80 in the Bundesliga this season.
Zakaria is also a reasonably experienced player. The Switzerland international has made 146 appearances for Borussia Monchengladbach's first-team.
The aforementioned figures highlight that Zakaria would add quality and depth to Liverpool's midfield. Therefore, we are disappointed to hear that the Reds won't be making a move for the 25-year-old anytime soon.
The Reds will be able to cope without Zakaria. But, if the midfielder is available on a free transfer next summer, Liverpool should make a move for him.
