Metro have news that has seriously concerned the majority of our Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they report that Sami Khedira could well be on his way to Monaco.
A move to Ligue 1 would of course see Arsenal miss out on what seems to be their number one transfer target for the summer and would be a huge blow to Arsene Wenger in what has otherwise been a very successful transfer window for the Frenchman.
One of our punters moves over to the bar and asks our landlord exactly why Khedira is now being linked with a move to Monaco and is told that it is all down to the proposed transfer for James Rodriguez between Monaco and Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants are trying to barter with Monaco and have tried and failed to use a host of their current players as bait for the Colombian star.
Given both Radamel Falcao and James seem to be La Liga bound, Monaco are keen to see a couple of top players arrive and would be thrilled to land Khedira.
Arsenal fans. Is this all because Wenger was too tight to pay the £150,000 per week asked for by the player? Let us know your thoughts below.
