Arsene Wenger could be about to land key target Sami Khedira after Real Madrid have told the midfielder he’s no longer required.
With the Spanish Giants having captured Toni Kroos already this summer manager Carlo Ancelotti is spoilt for choice in his midfield area which already consists of Luka Modric & Xabi Alonso and the Italian has grown tired of Khedira’s attitude over the last 12 months.
The asking price of 24 million could well be reduced in a bid to move him on as soon as possible with only 12 months left on his contract, Arsene Wenger is ready to strike as he bids to add quality to his Arsenal side in time for the new Premier League season.
There have also been interest from London rivals Chelsea about the midfielder but Arsenal seem favourites to land Khedira having already had a fee agreed between the two clubs only for wage demands seeming to stall the move.
The 27 year old is said to be keen to link up with his German team mates Podolski, Metersacker & Ozil as the Gunners aim to finish higher than the 4th they achieved last season having lead the premier league for the early part of the campaign.
