You can certainly understand why Arsene Wenger could be interested in bring Sami Khedira to Arsenal next season, if only for the fact that the 27 year-old German international will be available for nothing (well…except for some massive wages of course!)
There have been various reports of the midfielder wishing a return to the Bundesliga, but Marca are reporting today that Khedira is leaving his options open and one of those options is Arsenal.
Khedira himself has also made statement that seems to make it clear that he is definitely leaving Rea Madrid when his contract runs out this summer, which is only to be expected as he has only made seven appearances for the Spanish giants this season. Khedira told reporters while training with the German national team. “I love Real Madrid, it will be hard to leave this club”. he said.
“I will give everything for this shirt until the last day of my contract, there should be no doubt about that.”
There has already been countless discussions on this forum about Khedira moving to Arsenal this summer, but it would seem that the rumours simply will not go away. It now seems likely that he is going to leave his decision right until the last minute (his contract runs out on June 30th) but with Tomas Rosicky talking about leaving Arsenal and Abou Diaby certain to be taken off the wage bill, there will definitely be room for another midfielder in Wenger’s squad….
