Signing Khedira is a no-brainer for Liverpool if the deal is right

Liverpool should try to sign Sami Khedira either in January or next summer after reports from Ilbianconero.com claim that Juventus have refused the midfielder a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

What’s the word?

The German World Cup winner is an experienced midfielder having played at the top level for the majority of his career.

Khedira has had spells at Stuttgart, Real Madrid and Juventus, where he has been since 2015.

The 31-year-old’s contract in Turin will expire at the end of the season, though, meaning that he will be eligible to join any club on a free transfer next summer.

According to Ilbianconero.com, the Italian giants are refusing to sell Khedira before Friday’s transfer deadline.

If the midfielder stays put then it will be up to him whether he commits his future to Juventus or seeks pastures new.

Why should Liverpool be interested?

On paper, the midfield is not an area that the Reds need significant strengthening in, particularly after their recent transfer activity.

Jurgen Klopp added Naby Keita and Fabinho to his squad, but it would be difficult to walk away from potentially signing a five-time title winner for a cut price.

Liverpool want to be title challengers, but in order to do that they require strength in depth.

The Merseyside outfit are in a much better position in that regard as their bench is stronger this season, but to have the quality of Khedira to call upon takes them to another level.

The Reds should enquire about the midfielder’s situation in the January window, and depending on the outcome, make a move there and then or push for a pre-contract agreement.
