The 26 year old is apparently looking to leave the Bernabeu and may be tempted by a switch to the Emirates Stadium side and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen to bring in the German international to add some solidity to the centre of his side.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is looking to strengthen his midfield and has set his sights on Tottenham’s Paulinho, with Khedira being very vocal about his dissatisfaction with life under the Italian, stating recently;

“I began the season on the bench and once again I’ve been made a scapegoat. They don’t value me, even when I play well.”

Bernabeu has been out of action since November and this has led to Ancelotti using Luka Modric in a deeper role alongside Xabi Alonso, a pairing that has proven successful.

The chance to join fellow compatriots Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker may further motivate Khedira to continue a switch to North London though Chelsea are also said to be interested in the box to box performer.
