Fabrizio Romano has dropped a transfer update involving Sami Khedira and whether Everton are looking to sign him.
Speaking to Give Me Sport, the Italian football journalist and transfer guru was asked as to whether the Goodison Park faithful are trying to sign the central midfield player in this month’s transfer window, to which he said:
“Oh, he has been offered to Everton just because he is like a free agent, you know, Juventus are ready to sell him for free. So we can consider him as a free agent ready to leave the club.
“But at the moment, Everton have not moved to sign Khedira. They are still in a quiet situation on the market. They are not going to make any bid in the next few days so we will see, but at the moment, Khedira is hoping because he has a special relationship with Ancelotti. He was with him at Real Madrid so he always had the dream to play in the Premier League. He was amazing with Real Madrid, with Bayern Munich in German football and Italian football with Juventus.
“He wants to try the Premier League but at the moment, he has no bid from the Premier League. So Sami is waiting, he’s hoping for the Premier League bids but Everton, at the moment, have not done anything. He has been offered so it’s up to Ancelotti, basically.”
Khedira could be a shrewd signing for Everton
Signing someone with the experience of Khedira could be a good bit of business by the Merseyside club given what he can bring off of the pitch as much as on it.
Would Khedira be a good signing by Everton?
The 33 year-old has won both the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA World Cup with Real Madrid and Germany respectively (Transfermarkt), and so knows how to perform in big games on the big stage.
Given his ‘special’ bond that he has with Ancelotti as well as Romano points out, the 61 year-old will know how to get the best out of the German, and so could still find room for him on the pitch playing for the Toffees.
With no transfer fee to be paid either if they do look at signing him, Khedira could well turn out to be a shrewd signing by the Blues.
