EPL: Arsenal mentioned as likely destination for 33-year-old


English Premier League outfit Arsenal have been mentioned by some reports as part of the likely destination for Sami Khedira who is believed to be available on a cheap fee.

The option for the North London outfit this summer window is Houssem Aouar but there have been difficulty in agreeing on a deal with French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon as they cannot meet his asking price.

With Sami Khedira set to leave the Bianconeri this summer window, his age might not be an issue as he will give Arsenal his experience and defensive discipline to help challenge bigger teams in the Premier League.

The only reason why Sami Khedira is being suggested to Arsenal is for the fact that they lack the financial strength to bring in their major targets while time is also running out on them.

However, it is very unlikely that manager Mikel Arteta will seek to work with Sami Khedira because of his age as the style of the Spanish boss fits into younger players.

Sami Khedira has been a long-term target for the North London outfit. It would be recalled that former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made several attempts to land the Germany international but was unable to win his chase.
