Roman Abramovich has decided that Sami Khedira is still a priority for the January transfer window, despite the midfielder being unable to participate in the knockout stage of the Champions League, according to the Daily Mirror.
Khedira has been on Abramovich’s radar for some time now, but with the fact that the Real Madrid star can’t play in the European matches, the Blues owner was still undecided over whether or not to do a deal.
But now, according to the paper, Chelsea have decided that given David Luiz’s contribution to the team since he moved and was cup-tied, Khedira would be a good enough addition to the Chelsea squad to warrant being signed, despite his inability to participate in European football.
Khedira is said to be worth £20 million, putting Chelsea as front runners to secure his signature, with the club easily able to afford the price demanded by Real Madrid.
