Manchester United and Arsenal remain intent on battling it out for Real Madrid star Sami Khedira, despite his long-term injury.
According to the Mirror both Arsene Wenger and David Moyes see the German midfielder as a perfect addition to their squads, with a move in next summer's transfer window the most likely circumstance.
Khedira only managed 15 games this year before sustaining a serious knee injury that is believed to be bad enough to rule him out for the rest of the campaign.
This has effectively ruled out the chance of United and Arsenal getting him in January and so the duo are now preparing to fight for him at the end of the season.
According to the Mirror a figure of around £25million would be enough to convince Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti to part ways with his tenacious midfielder, and both clubs are more than capable of stumping up that amount.
Arsenal could have the edge over their Premier League rivals as Mesut Ozil maintains a strong friendship with Khedira, though Moyes will most certainly not be willing to give up the chase without a fight.
