Home All The News Everton to rival West Ham for Juventus’ midfield outcast Khedira
The German player became available recently as Juventus revealed that he wasn’t needed in their squad.
That’s notified clubs across Europe who could pick up an experienced World Cup winner for a decent price.
That’s because the Italian boss thinks he can have a good impact on the player, like he did with former Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez.
Rodriguez has had a revival at Goodison Park. He’s been playing with freedom going forward and has registered seven goal contributions in his first eight matches.
Ancelotti is adamant he can get the best out of Khedira, who would provide another option in midfield.
Everton already have Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure in Khedira’s position. They’ve formed a solid midfield three alongside Rodriguez.
But Khedira would be able to fill in if any of them picked up an injury.
He’s a strong ball winner who has won plenty of trophies with both Real Madrid and Juventus.
His main failing is a lack of pace, but the 33-year-old can make up for that with his other attributes.
Khedira is on his way out of Turin after failing to impress new manager Andrea Pirlo.
That means Everton should be able to sign the player for a small fee, but only if they beat West Ham to it.
David Moyes’ side have already been linked with Khedira as a means to improve their squad.
He said: “I have watched so many Premier League games since I was young and even now I am following the Premier League a lot.
“I always enjoy playing in the Champions League against the English clubs. The atmosphere, the style and the idea of football has always impressed me.
“If it is possible, it will for sure be a really big dream [come true] and an honour to be a part of the Premier League.”
Either Everton or West Ham could make Khedira’s dream become a reality once his contract expires in June.
The 33-year-old has spoken openly on his desire to play in the Premier League…
Khedira is yet to feature for Juventus this season and admits it’s his “dream” to play in the Premier League.
Marchisio has publicly urged Pogba to make a sensational return to Juventus, the club he left in August 2016.
Juventus are interested in Wolves and Portugal youngster Pedro Neto, who recently signed a five-year deal with the club.
United are ‘in contact’ with Ronaldo over re-signing him. No bulls**t. Well, maybe bulls**t. OK, probably bulls**t.
Chelsea and Brazil defender Emerson could be on his way to Italy in January after being linked with two of Europe’s elite.
Tottenham could play straight through Man City on the counter-attack. Or be penned in and make mistakes.
Man City are the big climbers from last season while United go the other way. What else is there?
Sergio Ramos is also off to Liverpool. Unless you read past the headline and paragraphs of bluster.
Was Bukayo Saka ‘overawed’ with England or is he actually just really bloody good for them and Arsenal?
Manchester City see Lionel Messi as ‘the final piece in the jigsaw’ when it comes to the Champions League.
