Everyone and his dog knows that Arsene Wenger should have bought a strong defensive midfielder in the summer, and the latest Arsenal transfer rumour suggests that he intends to remedy that in January.
In today’s Metro they are saying that Arsenal have already secured a deal for the wantaway midfielder. Here is an excerpt from the Metro report: “According to reports that came out this week, Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Sami Khedira from Real Madrid.
“The German midfielder was heavily linked with Arsenal over the summer and according to the most recent reports, the Gunners have struck a pre-contract agreement with him that will see him arrive in January.”
Khedira’s contract runs out at Madrid next summer, so the January window will be the only time that the Spanish giants can earn some money out of a sale instead of letting him go for for free in June, so you can see the sense of a sale to Arsenal, but knowing Wenger I am sure he would prefer to wait until the end of the season to get the German international for nothing!
Carlo Ancelotti obviously has a problem with Sami as he has only played 37 minutes in two subs appearances for Madrid this season, even Abou Diaby has played more than that, and that’s saying something!
But IF Wenger really has done a deal with Madrid then at least Khedira won’t be cup-tied for the Champions League…
