Both players have been mentioned as transfer targets for the Gunners in recent days, with Khedira notably pictured at the Emirates Stadium for Unai Emery’s side’s friendly game against Lyon, as shown below:

Meanwhile, Tuttomercatoweb have also linked Arsenal with Rugani, who makes sense as a signing to fix their defensive issues.

The latest from Gazzetta dello Sport, as translated by Sport Witness, is that AFC are currently negotiating with Juve for Rugani, but could return with an offer to include Khedira as part of the deal too.

This follows previous claims that the Germany international had been offered a two-year contract by the north Londoners, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, as translated by the Daily Mail.

Arsenal fans would surely be pleased to see both these players arrive this summer as they both look like upgrades on what Emery currently has at his disposal in both defence and midfield.
