Sami Khedira comments give hope to Arsenal and Chelsea

Arsenal and Chelsea target Sami Khedira has revealed he is yet to hold talks with any club regarding his future.

In-demand Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has dismissed speculation that he has already agreed a move away from last season's Champions League winners.

Last month it was heavily reported that the 27-year-old had agreed to move to Bavarian giants Bayern Munich when his contract in Spain expires at the end of this season.

However the box-to-box midfielder has since stated that he hasn't held talks with any club as of yet, which will be music to the ears of the Gunners and Chelsea who are both reportedly keen on securing the services of the German international.

ESPN have quoted Khedira as saying: "Generally, I am not against signing a new contract with Real Madrid after this season.

"There have been no conversations with other clubs. I focus on my daily work with Real.

"At the end of the month we'll play an important tournament in Morocco where we have the chance to win the FIFA Club World Cup and that's the only thing that counts for me right now."

The only worry for both Premier League giants is that the World Cup winner hasn't ruled out extending his contract in Madrid, although if that was a possibility you would have expected it to have happened by now.

After the summer acquisitions of Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez, Khedira has fallen low in the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabéu, and has not started a single La Liga game for Carlo Ancelotti's men this season. 

Khedira is currently out injured with concussion after featuring in Real's 5-0 Copa del Rey win over Cornella on Tuesday. Come January he will be free to hold contract talks with any interested parties, but will your club be one of those to make a move?
