Sami Khedira has not entered into Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo’s plans for this season and is now looking for a move away from the Turin club in the winter market.
Last week, the midfielder spoke about his desire to play in the Premier League, and reports linking him to clubs in England have already surfaced.
On November 20th, Calciomercato.it explained Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have a ‘greater’ chance of signing the 33-year-old because he previously played under José Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.
Another Italian outlet Calciomercato has a report focusing on the Toffees’ chase of the player.
Juve wanted to terminate his contract in the last window, but their efforts didn’t yield any results. Despite having not featured for the Old Lady this season, there’s belief the German can ‘still be useful’ if he’s in the right condition.
Khedira wants to return to the pitch and is ‘evaluating every possible solution’ to change clubs, and has a ‘special focus’ on the Premier League. As per the report, England is where his brother, Danny, who is also his agent, is focusing on.
It’s claimed Everton have taken the ‘most important steps’ towards Khedira as his experience could ‘make a difference’ in helping the Merseyside club qualify for the Champions League next season.
Ancelotti’s side are sixth in the table with 16 points, trailing fourth placed Leicester City by two points and are four points behind league leaders Spurs.
