Now that the World Cup is over transfer speculation is going to reach fever pitch as the big guns assemble their squads for the new season.
One player who is clearly going to draw the interest of the English elite proved himself beyond all doubt at The World Cup after sustaining a serious injury last season.
That is of course Sami Khedira and Arsenal seem to be hot favourites for his signature, although the name of Chelsea has also been floating around ominously in the last few days.
The Blues tend to do their transfer business very quickly and decisively so Arsenal should beware.
Depending on which reports you read today it appears that Arsenal are closing in on their ideal player, regardless of his lofty wage demands.
The Daily Mail says
Sami Khedira in line for £20million Arsenal move as Arsene Wenger looks to spend big
Let’s be very clear on this one. Arsenal have been desperate for exactly this type of player for years.
We all know that Arsene Wenger likes to get value for money in the transfer market and that’s a credit to him.
But letting this one slip because of a few million in fees or a few thousand a week in wage demands could be one of the biggest mistakes Arsenal ever make.
Because they’re on the cusp of breaking through that glass ceiling and Khedira could definitely take them over the line.
If Arsenal let Chelsea nick in for Khedira it would be devastating for the club so this one just has to get done ASAP.
Let’s see Khedira in action. Arsenal fans: is the perfect summer addition?
