Sami Khedira warming up

All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from the Emirates…

Reported Arsenal target Sami Khedira could instead be heading to Bayern Munich according to the latest reports from Spain.

The Daily Star has picked up on claims from Mundo Deportivo that the Bundesliga champions want to bring the German international to the Allianz Arena.

It is claimed Bayern have agreed a fee in the region of £6.4million for the defensive midfielder, which would be a major blow considering how perfect he is for Arsenal.

If the report is true, the Gunners could step up their alleged interest in Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho as they are in dire need of a new, quality midfield anchor.

In other news, Arsenal’s under-18 side lost 3-0 to their Chelsea counterparts earlier today.

As reported by the Gunners’ official website, the young Arsenal side went down to a goal from Tammy Abraham and a Dominic Solanke brace.

Gedion Zelalem, Ryan Huddart and Dan Crowley all featured but could not help their side to a victory.
