Juventus are hoping to complete the sale of Denis Zakaria to AS Monaco next week for circa €20m, though negotiations continue over the weekend.

The midfielder has just returned from a loan spell at Chelsea, who did not take up their option to make the move permanent.

He has also been linked with West Ham United, RB Leipzig, Bayer Leverkusen and RC Lens over the last few weeks.

Juve signed the Switzerland international from Borussia Monchengladbach in January 2022 for €10m, but he made only 15 competitive appearances for the club, contributing one goal and one assist.

According to Calciomercato.com, Monaco are now in advanced talks to secure Zakaria and Juventus hope to get the deal done for €20m next week.

The 26-year-old defensive midfielder has 49 senior caps for his country, in which he scored three goals.

He came up through the Servette youth academy, going on to Young Boys and Borussia Monchengladbach.

During the loan spell, Zakaria made only 11 appearances in the Chelsea shirt.
