Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira feels like a scapegoat at Real Madrid, and claims he isn't valued at the Bernabeu, according to ESPN.

The reported Arsenal target has been vocal in his disappointment at the sale of close friend and Germany team-mate Mesut Ozil, and is now saying he is unhappy with his treatment in Spain.

The confessions will add fuel to the fire that Arsenal are set to reunite Khedira with record signing Ozil, as Arsene Wenger seeks to establish a trophy winning squad.

Khedira joined Madrid in 2010 from Stuttgart, and has been a regular target for criticism from both the media and Madristas.

Holding midfielder, Khedira, has also attracted interest from the likes of Manchester UnitedChelsea and Paris Saint Germain, but with Ozil at the Emirates it's believed north London would be his preferred destination should he leave.

The 26-year-old, as quote on ESPNdoesn't feel he receives fair treatment at Real Madrid, and says he is a scapegoat for the team's poor performances:

"I feel badly treated by the Spanish press," Khedira said. 

"I am never among their favourites. I began the season on the bench, and again I am the scapegoat. I am not valued, even when my performances are good. I am not Spanish, I did not cost a lot, I am a disciple of Mourinho."

The German international also criticised his team's start to the season, particularly unhappy with their current style of play:

"We are not playing well," he said. "We can have some good moments, but most of the time we are playing too complicated, too individual. I do not know if it is just a question of time or something more, but we have still not found ourselves as a team."

41-cap Khedira has found competition at the Bernabeu even more difficult than usual this season. 

Along with Real Madrid regular Xabi Alonso, Carlo Ancelotti also signed Asier Illarramendi, while former Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric has also played in a more withdrawn role.
