Arsenal have been handed a big blow in their transfer hopes for the January window ove the player rumoured to be top of the Gunners’ transfer target list, Sami Khedira, and with reports that Arsene Wenger may have already discussed the personal terms of his transfer from Real Madrid.
Now, according to a report by The Daily Express we may not be able to sign the German international in January, or ever for that matter. The paper claims that the struggles of his international team mate and close friend Mesut Ozil since coming to England have forced Khedira to think again.
And the 27-year old has apparently made up his mind not to risk the best years of his football career in the Premier League just in case he becomes like another Juan Sebastian Veron. Instead, so the story goes, the World Cup winner is ready to begin talks with Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid over an extension to his current deal which runs out at the end of the season.
Hopefully this all just a rumour, because it seems to me that the powerful and talented Khedira has all the attributes to succeed for Arsenal in the EPL. If it is true, who should be the next player for Wenger to target for a January transfer?
