Sami Khedira continues to be linked with a move to the Premier League, with the latest reports suggesting the midfielder's agent will be in London for talks this week.

As clouded as the Germany international's future is, it's not clear whether the representative will speak with Chelsea or Arsenal or both.

Both clubs have been linked with the 27-year-old since he lifted the World Cup in Brazil in July.

Much of the speculation stems from Khedira's contract with current club Real Madrid having just 12 months to run and Los Blancos reportedly keen to cash in on the player this summer rather than seeing him leave for free.

Reports today in the Sunday Mirror suggest that situation has solidified after Khedira held unsuccessful talks with manager Carlo Ancelotti.

It's also claimed that the player's agent has already spoken with Bayern Munich about a possible switch and will fly to London this week to speak with possible suitors in England.


Any move for Khedira could be hindered by his wage demands, with suggestions that Arsenal may baulk at the high figure.
