Sami Khedira latest: Real Madrid desperate to sell midfielder to Arsenal rather than lose him for free to Bayern Munich next summer
The German World Cup winner is in the final year of his contract
Reports in Spain suggest that Real are desperate to cash in the midfielder, who is in the final year of his contract, this summer rather than lose him for free to Bayern next year.
Arsenal's talks with the midfielder stalled earlier this summer because of his reported £150,000 per week wage demands after entering talks over a £24m deal.
The Gunners have spent nearly £60m already this summer after tying up deals for Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle, David Ospina from Nice and Calum Chambers from Southampton.
