Arsenal fans are looking slightly stunned here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that the Gunners could well be set to land Sami Khedira, after the Real Madrid midfielder agreed to lower his wage demands in order to seal a move to the club.
As one of our punters notes, Khedira has been linked with a host of clubs this season since refusing to sign a new contract at Real Madrid and not only are Chelsea also keen on the German, but Manchester United have also been sniffing around him.
We had thought that Arsene Wenger was set to miss out once again – but it seems that after seeing Khedira drop his wage demands to around £80,000 per week, a deal could be set to take place.
It would represent a huge coup for Wenger should he manage to land such a coveted player – and one who would make a real difference to his midfield as well.
Khedira is a born winner and someone we think would push Arsenal to the next level – if they can manage to seal the deal before another club swoop in that is!
