Liverpool are reportedly closing in on a shock deal to sign Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, if reports from the Metro are to be believed.
The German World Cup winnner has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu since last summer, with Arsenal and Manchester United both previously interested in his signature.
But recent reports suggest Brendan Rodgers has identified Khedira as the perfect replacement for the outgoing Steven Gerrard this summer.
Khedira is set to become a free-agent at the end of this season, which means he’ll be an absolute steal for whoever wins the race to sign him.
The Metro claim he’s turned down an improved offer from the Spanish giants and is also mulling over an offer from Bundesliga side Schalke, but Liverpool might just be winning the race for him.
And you’d expect Khedira to have no trouble settling in at Liverpool, particularly if he can survive taking selfies in the Serengeti…
He clearly loves a daring selfie, so here’s just a few more he’ll just have to add to his collection if he signs for Liverpool…
