It looks almost certain that Arsenal will not be adding the name of Sami Khedira to the squad list, at least for a year anyway. He had been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates this summer to strengthen that defensive midfield role, but now Arsene Wenger will have to look elsewhere or stick with what he has already got.
Despite the rumours suggesting that the Germany international was unhappy with his playing prospects at Real Madrid, their manager Carlo Ancelotti has either persuaded him to stay, stopped him from leaving or simply failed to agree a deal to sell him. He has now declared that Khedira will be a Real Madrid player this season, as reported by Metro.
The Italian said, “Khedira is happy here and he is staying. The matter is resolved and he stays at Real Madrid.”
There have also been a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a move for the talented 22-year old William Carvalho from Sporting Club de Portugal, while earlier in the summer the names of Morgan Schneiderlin and Lars Bender were supposedly in the frame.
But there is also Calum Chambers to consider as well, with the 19-year old already showing great ability and versatility since signing from Southampton. So what do you think Wenger is going to do Gooners?
