Metro have Chelsea fans chomping at the bit to hear just who they might be signing in January and it is a player who the Blues have been linked with time and time again.
Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has again been linked with both Chelsea and Arsenal as Real Madrid try and offload the German this January before risking losing him on a free come next summer.
Now, the Blues have made a bid for the German international, stealing a march on their London rivals who they’ll face in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
As our regulars note, it was only yesterday that we were discussing the possibility of either Chelsea or Arsenal landing him on a free in the summer and what a good deal that would be.
However, now it seems that Jose Mourinho is not prepared to wait and leave linking up with Khedira once again to chance. Wenger meanwhile probably will!
Should the Premier League leaders manage to lure Khedira to Stamford Bridge, we would expect one of Ramires of John Obi Mikel to make a swift exit from Chelsea in January and it has not gone unnoticed amongst our punters that Ramires has been linked with Real Madrid before.
Chelsea fans. Is it worth buying Khedria now or would you rather wait until the summer and get him on a free? What would this mean for the future of Mikel and Ramires? Let us know your thoughts below.
