Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria has reportedly attracted interest from plenty of big clubs, but the 22-year-old claims he isn't thinking about leaving Borussia-Park at this point.

"I don't want to leave right now. I simply want to focus 100 percent on my performances. I'm not thinking about a transfer at the moment. I want to concentrate fully on the season," Zakaria told Express.de and added:

"It's clear that I want to play in the Champions League just like any other player. And I want to do that with Gladbach if I can. If we continue to play well this season, we can achieve that. I want to do my best for that."

Asked which club he dreamed of playing for when he was a kid, Zakaria answered:

"FC Barcelona. That has always been my favourite club."

Zakaria, who has scored two goals in 15 appearances for Gladbach this season, is under contract until 2022.
