Khedira Latest: Arsenal expert pours cold water on Emirates move

first_imgJohn Cross believes Arsenal are out of the running to sign Sami Khedira.The German midfielder is apparently being frozen out at Real Madid, and that will lead to fresh speculation of a move to the Premier League.The Gunners have been linked with the 27-year-old throughout the summer, but Cross, the Daily Mirror’s Emirates expert, doens’t see the move happening.“It will be interesting to see if people go for him,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “I don’t think it will be Arsenal. They’ve got so many midfielders there.“And you’ve got to look at the package he wants. It’s a huge amount of money, beyond the transfer fee, for a player who has had a lot of problems with injuries and any buying club has got to have a look at that.“I don’t think he’ll be heading for Arsenal unless it’s a dramatically good deal.“What are you buying there? He’s basically a defensive midfield player. And do you bring a defensive midfielder in as your top earner? You top earner is normally a striker or a top playmaker. You won’t find too many clubs where the top earner is a defensive midfielder.”last_img
