Spanish news source Sport are claiming that Arsenal are leading the race to sign German international Sami Khedira.
The Gunners are in pole position to get their hands on the player due to the presence of Mesut Ozil who happens to be a very close friend of their target.
The player could be sold by Madrid since Carlo Ancelotti is trying to sign Chelsea’s talented youngster Ramires.
Khedira will play a pole position in the current Arsenal squad blending well in with the formation. However, Mikel Arteta plays at the same position and certin websites are bashing the Spaniard for having a rather poor season at the club.
Khedira did not play much of a role for Madrid last season since he remained injured. However, he will be playing in the World Cup for
Germany who are facing Portugal today in a nail-biting thriller.
Despite the fact that Mourinho would not let go of his hot prospect Ramires easily, Sami Khedira faces competition from Luka Modric and Xabi Alonse – two players who are known for their skills and technique.
