Arsenal close to signing their new talisman – report


After waiting so long for the first major signing of the summer it appears that the patience of Arsenal fans worldwide is about to pay huge dividends.

We have reported over the last week about how Arsenal are following up the Sanchez deal with a bid to bring Sami Khedira to the club and latest media news suggests that a deal is close.

The Metro stated late Saturday:

Arsenal are hoping of landing Sami Khedira after entering advanced negotiations with Real Madrid over the player.

Khedira, who has already turned down a new contract at Madrid, has emerged as a top transfer target for the Gunners.

A £24million bid has already gone in and now Spanish reports say the two clubs are in advanced talks over the transfer.

Quite what makes them ‘advanced’ talks is anyone’s guess. Perhaps they are discussing theories of evolution aswell as the transfer of Khedira to Arsenal?

Either way we believe that if Arsenal can get this one done it will represent and even better buy than Sanchez. Arsenal are desperate for a swashbuckling leader in the centre of the park – someone to make The Gunners a more feared and difficult side to beat. In this sense Khedira could easily become Arsenal’s new talisman. And we wouldn’t be surprised if he was eventually given the captain’s armband.

He had a fantastic World Cup and quite why Real Madrid want to sell him is anyone’s guess. But with just a year left on his contract Arsenal look in pole position for the signature.

You would have to say that with these two new additions Arsenal will be a different proposition next season and the title race could be even more fascinating.

Arsenal fans: even better signing than Sanchez?



  1. Khadira will be a very great addition to the present Arsenal squad. Therefore, I would like to see him play for us (The Gunners) this coming season. Lars Bender is also great as well should we miss out on Khadira which I pray we won’t.

  2. If we are going to pay Khedira £156k per week then we should not quibble about paying Remy £80k.after all he has PL experience and has shown he can score goals at this level.

  3. I don’t know wats wrong with wenger, if khedira deal fails why can’t you bring bender? We’re tired of playing on our brain i think it’s our time now to sign world class players.

  4. It wont be a bad idea if he joins his country man Ozil at Arsenal……. Please, sign him Mr. Wenger. STILL AND ALWAYS A GUNNER

  5. Its a good signing but we don’t want to hear another story about loosing him making it all a speculations

  6. Terrible signing, injury prone and will struggle with the pace of the PL, would much rather we went for Lars Bender or Vidal, Khedira is avarage ask any Madrid fan

  7. He’s obviously Arsenal material as he’s injured and was for a large part of last season, why do you think RM want rid of him?

  8. Khedira is a very good player, but right now he is injured. I think they also lookt at his injury, but he is one of the bast defensive midfielder who can improve the Arsenal midfield.
