Khedira ‘Pushing For Arsenal Move’ After Rejecting Madrid Contract

By on July 10, 2014

Some interesting reports coming out of Spain today with El Confidencial claiming that Sami Khedira is pushing to join Arsenal after rejecting a contract extension at Real Madrid.

Khedira has just entered the final year of his contract at the Bernabeu and the Mirror are citing Spanish newspaper El Confidencial as saying he has turned down a two-year extension and is now trying to secure a move to the Emirates.

The German international is close friends with Mesut Ozil and it’s understood the pair have spoken at length about life in north London, so it appears Ozil may have played a key role in persuading the midfielder his future should be at Arsenal.

These rumours come shortly after reports suggesting that Arsene Wenger was lining-up a £24m bid for the 27-year-old as he continues to try and bring in a long-term replacement for Mikel Arteta.

Madrid are expected to cash-in this summer if Khedira doesn’t commit his future to the club as they don’t want to risk losing him for nothing in 12 months time, and it looks like we’re in the driving seat to secure his signature.

However, before we get too excited, a major stumbling block over any potential deal is that Khedira is believed to want around £150,000-a-week and I really don’t see Arsene paying that kind of money for a defensive midfielder.

Those wages would put him on around £8m-per-season and make him our highest paid player, so unless he’s willing to lower his demands, I don’t think we’ll see Khedira in an Arsenal shirt any time soon.

    That kind of wages we can sign Sebastian Sweinsteiger nr. 1 defensive midfielder in the world. But I think Wenger’s Plan B and C much desirable if Khedira don’t want lower his demands.

      He’ll not cost that much as it will be his last year, I think we should pay him what he wants as he is class.

    If he refuses to sign, Madrid might well let us have him for half that figure, we will then pay him a lump sum and about what ozil’s on. That will keep him happy.

    Khedira has the ability and discipline to be the Dm for arsenal and eventually take over from schweinsteiger for Germany.

    If I was wenger i would make a £15m offer for khedira, schneirderlin and both the benders. Any of the 4 will do the job. If all 4 were accepted I would sell arteta flamini diaby rosicky coquelin and galindo to make way for them. With thecexception of khedira, part ex deals might even be a possibility?
