Metro have Chelsea fans smiling here in the Football Transfer Tavern but after claiming that Arsenal are set to miss out on Sami Khedira, there are some rather upset Gunners to boot!
According to the publication, Arsene Wenger is set to see yet another transfer target slip through his fingers with Khedira set to open talks with Chelsea over a potential move.
The German international midfielder may even go as far as to sign a pre-contractual agreement with the Blues.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho of course knows Khedira well from their time spent at Real Madrid together.
We were pretty sure that the only reason the German did not move in the summer was so he could cash in and receive a massive signing-on fee when he ran down his contract with the La Liga side and moved the following year.
There were of course rumours that Petr Cech could well be used as part of a swap deal but judging by the latest rumours, Khedira is looking to run down his deal and move on a free.
Chelsea fans. Is it becoming a given that you will beat Arsenal and their so-called ‘specialist in failure’ to just about everything? Let us know your thoughts below.
