Arsenal push Khedira to drop wage demands

Arsenal's move for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira is stalling over personal terms. The Mirror says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger wants to make the £23.5million Germany superstar his second major signing of the window following the £33m capture of Alexis Sanchez last week.

But, even though Khedira has just a year left on his contract at Real Madrid, the Gunners are not willing to be held to ransom by his demands for £150,000-a-week before bonuses.

The salary would lift the 27-year-old - who has so far rejected a new deal at the European champions - above the likes of Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, both of whom are on around £130,000-a-week.
