Sorry about using the title of our rivals in the tile Arsenal fans, but if this latest Arsenal transfer rumour is true, it is great news for the Gunners. It follows the bad news reported earlier this week that the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich had already agreed a pre-contract agreement with Sami Khedira.
The Real Madrid and Germany midfielder is out of contract in the summer and so can sign such a deal once the January transfer window opens, although Arsenal fans were hoping that Arsene Wenger would make move to bring Khedira to the Emirates in January and steal a march on our rivals.
But according to the Daily Express, there is still a chance for Arsenal to do just that after Bayern Munich released a statement denying that any such agreement had been made. And the report claims that this reprieve has spurred on Wenger to prepare a transfer bid for the Madrid star in January, although it goes on to say that our Premier League rivals Chelsea and Man United are doing the same.
But at least the Gunners are still in with a chance and the revelations from Per Mertesacker that he and Mesut Ozil have been working on their fellow countryman to choose Arsenal, might just give us the advantage.
