Sami Khedira's agent has not spoken to Arsenal or Chelsea

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira's agent has insisted that Arsenal are nowhere near agreeing a deal for the German World Cup star, telling the Telegraph that neither the Gunners or Premier League rivals Chelsea have spoken to him regarding a €29m summer deal.

Khedira is widely reported to have been the subject of a formal transfer offer from Arsenal earlier this week, with Madrid forced to consider selling a prized asset in the final year of his contract because talks over fresh terms have stalled.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho also shares a strong working relationship with the box-to-box dynamo, but his representative Jorg Neubauer believes there's no way Madrid have given the green light to his sale because he has not been notified.

Neubeaur attempted to clairfy his position on a consistent swirl of rumours surrounding his client this afternoon, stating: "We are not in talks with Arsenal. I don’t think a fee can have been agreed, otherwise I would have been told.

“When a club have an interest I am sure they will call me and we will speak about things. The same goes for Chelsea.

“We are talking to Real Madrid about his contract, but nothing is close to being decided. Sami has just returned from the World Cup and has gone on holiday.”

Saga sure to rumble on

With Khedira now on a well-earned break Arsenal and perhaps Chelsea face a frustrating wait to push a deal for a proven central midfielder forward, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is in this transfer chase for the long haul.

Wenger has made buying a ball-winning midfielder his number one priority after securing the signing of Alexis Sanchez and imminent arrival of Mathieu Debuchy, with Khedira at the top of a shortlist which also includes Lars Bender and Morgan Scheiderlin.

Chelsea are maintaining a watching brief and have not ruled adding a fourth star from La Liga to their ranks this summer, but Neubeaur's latest comments make a summer switch seem much further away than the rumour mill has suggested so far this week.
