Chelsea lead the way for Stuttgart midfielder Khedira
Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly targeting the 23-year old as a potential replacement for Michael Ballack and news that Stuttgart are ready to cash in has made the possibility of a deal more likely.
Khedira’s contract expires next year so Stuttgart boss Christian Gross wants to make sure the German international does not leave on a free transfer.
"It would be very painful if Sami left on a free,” Gross said.
"If he has two more great World Cup games, all the big clubs will come for him."
