sami-khedriaArsenal fans are still buzzing over the signing of Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez, but it does not look like Arsene Wenger has finished shopping in Spain as the Gunners are strongly linked with Real Madrid and Germany star Sami Khedira.

Khedira has 12 months remaining on his current deal at Madrid and the European Champions are said to be wiling to sell Khedira for around £25 million. Real are willing to let Khedira go as they have already agreed a deal with Bayern Munich for Khedira’s German teammate Toni Kroos.

Jack Rodwell To Arsenal?

by David on July 7, 2014

Emirates_Nightsmall.jpgManchester City’s forgotten man Jack Rodwell is a target for a number of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, as his City spell nears an end according to the Daily Mail.

Rodwell arrived at the Etihad for a £12m fee back in the summer of 2012, but the English youngster has failed to build on the reputation he had built for himself on Merseyside. After such a promising start to his career at Everton under David Moyes, Rodwell has suffered with numerous injuries.

Manchester City are keen to offload the injury-prone midfielder, however, the Toffees are not keen on a permanent deal and that has prompted Arsene Wenger to have a look at the 23-year-old.
