Sami Khedira has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League since not long after he arrived at Juventus. Those claims have increased in recent weeks, given how out of the picture the midfielder is under Andrea Pirlo at the Turin club.
Everton have been by far the side linked most with the German, with it being thought Carlo Ancelotti rates him and wouldn’t mind adding his experience to the Toffees’ midfield.
Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham have also been linked, again due to managerial connections, but it was stated in Italy over the weekend that it’s Everton considered the likeliest.
Khedira has been left out of Juventus’ Champions League squad, and hasn’t made an appearance for the club so far this season.
That’s seen claims in Italy of a potential contract termination, which would allow the midfielder to move to another club for free, but speaking to Germany’s ZDF he’s denied this is something in progress: “There was no offer to terminate the contract. There was no talk about financial matters.”
When it came to a Premier League move, with Everton and Tottenham the two clubs named by ZDF, the 33-year-old said: “If there is an opportunity to move to the Premier League, that’s an option.”
There’s little point in Khedira continuing at Juventus, unless Pirlo leaves the club and things change radically, so this is certainly a situation to keep an eye on.
