Arsenal to bid for Manchester United target Sami Khedira

Arsenal will look to follow up their signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid by bringing his compatriot Sami Khedira to north London, reports the Daily Star.

Arsene Wenger sealed the signing of the summer of deadline day by bringing Ozil to Arsenal in a £42.5m deal.

Arsenal's move for Ozil reportedly scuppered Manchester United's attempts to sign Khedira, with Real Madrid blocking a €40m bid from David Moyes' team.

The La Liga giants were reluctant to let both Khedira and Ozil leave the Bernabeu and, by the time Manchester United's offer came in, Ozil was well on his way to the Gunners.

Now the national paper is reporting that Arsenal are ready to add insult to injury by beating United to Khedira when the window reopens in January.

Khedira is apparently open to the idea of following his German team mate to the Emirates and Wenger is ready to test Real Madrid's resolve with a another big-money bid.

The 26-year-old originally revealed his disappointment that Ozil had left the club, telling reporters that he will be a game-changer in the Premier League.

He said: "Personally, I feel bad about Mesut’s transfer. We are very, very good friends.

"His departure is a loss also from a sporting perspective. Mesut can make the difference."
