How Gunners could use Ozil sale to sign Khedira.
Arsenal’s possible sale of Mesut Ozil could help the club to finally sign Real Madrid midfielder and Chelsea target Sami Khedira, according to Fichajes.net.
The Gunners are up against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Juventus for the signing of the German defensive midfielder, but hope to free up funds by offloading Ozil this January.
The 26-year-old, Arsenal’s record signing, has flopped badly since his move to the Emirates Stadium last summer, and his departure from the wage bill would free up serious money for Arsene Wenger’s side to finalise a deal for Khedira.
Arsenal came close to landing the World Cup winner in the summer, but previously struggled to meet his wage demands.
