Denis Zakaria has admitted that he was very close to signing for Liverpool on transfer deadline day earlier this month.

The Switzerland international instead headed to Stamford Bridge to join Chelsea on loan from Serie A outfit Juventus but the 25-year-old has revealed he spoke to his agent about a potential move to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
