As things stand, the Switzerland international will be available on a free transfer next summer.
Therefore, if the Bundesliga club don't want Zakaria to depart the club on a free transfer, they will be forced to sell him come January.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Zakaria would be a good signing for Liverpool. The midfielder is reasonably experienced. Zakaria has made 138 appearances for Borussia Monchengladbach's first-team.
The 24-year-old has also been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.05 in the early stages of the Bundesliga season.
The aforementioned figures highlight that the 24-year-old would bring a fair bit to the Reds' midfield.
Therefore, we would not be against Liverpool attempting to sign Zakaria either on the cheap in January or on a free transfer in the summer.
