Arsenal are pondering a move for Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira instead of re-signing Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, according to reports from The Metro.

The former Gunners captain is rumoured to be free to leave the Nou Camp for the right price in the coming months, with the Catalan giants set to offload a number of big name players on the back of a below par campaign.

Arsenal have been linked with a move to bring back the World Cup winner, who rose to prominence in north London after joining the club from Barca as a teenager.

But with Chelsea and Manchester United interested and Fabregas being valued at upwards of £30m, a deal may not be viable for Arsene Wenger.

As a result he is looking at Real’s Khedira, who is would command a fee in the region of half that would be needed for the silky playmaker.

The Germany international missed much of last season through injury, but started the Champions League Final against Atletico Madrid despite fitness concerns.

A move away from the Bernabeu may be on the cards for the 27-year-old, who is now entering the final year of his contract, with Los Blancos unlikely to be willing to let him walk for free.

What do you think?

Arsenal must get Fabregas back

    Fabregas must return!!!!!!! He is already and always has been a fan favorite. He is without a doubt one of the best Arsenal FC players ever!!!!!! Jack Wilshere said I was sad when we lost Henry but losing Fabregas was more heartbreaking. He is a tremendous playmaker and he is a silky smooth dribbler and a brilliant and even better midfield stopper then Mikel Arteta is. He hasn’t even played for his national team. And Arsenal FC would again have the deadliest midfield in the Premier League!!!!!! We were superior with the strong and fast likes of Vieira, Petit and Overmars and won the Premier League for the first time. And to hear and see The Wizard of Öz would play alongside Fabregas would just be just be music to Arsenal fans ears and jaw dropping to watch as well. And Fabregas is also one of our best captains ever. Fabregas told at his return press conference to Barca the biggest regret for him to live with was knowing he wasn’t able to lift a trophy as a Arsenal FC captain. Well that just might change if we give him another chance as a Arsenal FC leader. Now he would have much more amazing and experienced players to be behind him. And remember this is the man who made Arsenal FC the first English team to win against AC Milan away at San Siro just like Henry was the reason we managed to become the first English team to beat Real Madrid at The Bernabeu. But I don’t see why we can’t sign Sami Khedira as well. Both would get more minutes at Arsenal FC. We have the cash to buy them now splash that wallet. I don’t see why 100 million to spend this summer ain’t enough if we are gonna just bring in 4 to 5 players like Arsène Wenger claims. And I am very excited to see how it will work out if we bring Serge Aurier as a Bacary Sagna replacement. He has all if not more attributes and skills that Sagna has.
