Arsenal have made an official €29 million offer for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, according to reports in Spain

Interest in the German ace is thought to be high, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United believed to be keen on securing his services. At the moment however it seems as though the Gunners are leading the way, and AS report that they've made the first move by making an offer worth around £23 million.

Whether that is enough to persuade Real Madrid to let him leave remains to be seen, however previous reports suggest that the European champions were after around £25 million, so Arsenal's offer isn't too far off.

Khedira will likely be away on holiday over the next few weeks following his exertions at the World Cup so is unlikely to make any decision about his future soon. That could give Chelsea the chance to swoop and match Arsenal's offer should they decide to firm up their own interest.
