Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to make a move for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, according to The Mirror.
If reports are to be believed, the Blues boss - who has already added former Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas to his midfield this summer - is ready to swoop in for the Germain international.
If Chelsea are going to sign the German international, however, then they will have to beat their Premier League rivals Arsenal for his signature. Reports have indicated that the Gunners have already made enquires for the highly rated midfielder, but it remains to be seen as to whether they will step up their interest in the star.
The Gunners will be hoping to make the German ace their second marquee signing of the summer following the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona earlier this week.
It certainly appears likely that the Bernabeu outfit are ready to sell the £20 million rated star, with the player set to run out of contract at the Spanish giants at the end of the 2014/15 campaign.
However, with the player seemingly demanding wages worth £150,000-a-week, it's unclear as to whether Chelsea or Arsenal are ready to give him what he wants.
Khedira's immediate attention, however, will turn to tomorrow night's World Cup final, as Germany take on Argentina in the Maracana. The Germans will go into the game as the favourites after they demolished hosts Brazil 7-1 in the semi-final of the competition.
