Chelsea could miss out on top target.
Arsenal and Manchester United appear to have edged ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Bayern Munich in the race to sign Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira this January, according to Fichajes.net.
The German international has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, and it may now be that he will be offloaded on the cheap this winter.
Khedira’s contract expires at the end of the season and Real don’t want to risk losing the 27-year-old on a free, leaving Arsenal and United to battle it out for his signature.
Arsenal are in particular need of new additions in midfield after losing Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere to injury.
