Majority of the top premier league clubs will be eager to reinforce their squads in the winter transfer window having not made decent start.
Chelsea are already 6 points clear of their nearest title rivals Manchester City, while Arsenal, Liverpool and Man United should not even be considered in the race for the crown because of their very slow start.
The biggest player likely to be available for transfer this January is Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira.
The German international is arguably one of the best holding midfielders around but still cannot find starting role with Los Blancos as Kroos and Modric keep their starting midfield roles.
With Khedira’s contract expiring at the end of the season, Madrid do not want to risk losing such a player for free.
Also, knowing the fact that many premier league clubs are interested in luring him, Madrid can still get somewhat decent fee for the German who would only have few months left on his contract.
According to reports, Real Madrid have perhaps dropped the biggest hint that Khedira will be heading out of Spain as he was made to train with the reserves alongside team mate Illaramendi.
Manchester United, City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are linked with a move for the highly rated midfield enforcer and it will be intriguing to see who wins the battle.
Chelsea and City already have quality midfielders for defensive roles and Khedira will have that in mind as he looks for a starting role.
Who will be the one to sign Sami Khedira?
