Arsenal are set to beat Manchester United to the signing of Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira according to various reports this week in both German, Spain and England. Khedira is a Manchester United target but reports are now claiming he wants to join Arsenal should he have to leave Real Madrid as he wants to have the opportunity of playing with Mesut Ozil again.
Only just 2 weeks ago, Arsenal completed the record breaking transfer of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid but the gunners are not yet done with Madrid and will be going back there to try to sign more of their players with Khedira one of those as Wenger tries to bring in a defensive midfielder he sees as more long term than Flamini who is already 29 years old.
Flamini was signed on a free transfer in the last window but Wenger wants another defensive midfielder as according to reports, he does not full trust the French man especially when you consider this age and Wenger’s indisposition to players in their 30’s.
Should Arsenal manage to sign Khedira, they will be signing another pass master as the German has 90% pass accuracy and wins 2 out of 3 attempted tackles.
