Germany expert: Sami Khedira is "perfect" for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger should set his sights on Real Madrid midfielder, tweets Jan Aage Fjortoft.

Since the closure of the mid-season transfer market, Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedria has remained a key cog in the rumour mill.

Khedira has no shortage of admirers in his signature yet, to date, there has not been one plausible link to Arsenal.

He tweeted: "Nothing yet about Khedria to Arsenal stories in the German press."

Khedira gets little positive press as he is oft over-headlined by the more creative and aesthetically-pleasing attackers such as Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel di Maria, however, though it is the aforementioned Los Blancos hat-trick who can attack at 20 miles per hour, it is players like Khedira who rev the engine - and that is precisely one of the types of player who Arsene Wenger may be gunning for in the summer market.

For Fjortoft, Khedira "would be perfect for this Arsenal team".

The German, a Champions League winner, is valued at £19.36m by
