On November 19th, reports from the Italian press stated West Ham United ‘could start negotiations’ for Sami Khedira’s signing after the Juventus player publicly spoke about his desire to play in the Premier League.
According to Calciomercato.it, ‘all the clues’ point towards the midfielder moving to England in January, where Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are named as potential destinations.
The 33-year-old is out of favour at the Turin club and has realised the hope of returning to Andrea Pirlo’s plans has diminished. Therefore, the World Cup winner with Germany has decided to leave the Old Lady in the winter market.
Having opened the door to move to the Premier League, the outlet states Khedira ‘enjoys the interest’ of ‘several English clubs’.
The German played under by José Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti during his time at Real Madrid, and the two coaches are now managing Spurs and the Toffees respectively.
It’s claimed the Juventus player ‘would be delighted’ to play under either of Mourinho and Ancelotti, and therefore, Tottenham and Everton’s chances of getting Khedira is ‘greater’ than other English clubs.
Calciomercato.it’s report focuses on what Khedira prefers and there isn’t anything to suggest if either the north London club or the Goodison Park side are seriously considering to sign him in January.
