Chelsea, Arsenal encouraged in Khedira pursuit

Chelsea and Arsenal are pushing to sign Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira.

The London Evening Standard says Real have signalled their intent to let Chelsea and Arsenal target Khedira leave the Bernabeu next year by making a £9.5m offer for Cruzeiro defensive midfielder Lucas Silva.

Chelsea are planning to offer Khedira a pre-contract in January to join them on a free transfer in the summer, while Arsenal have maintained their interest despite seeing a move in the last window collapse over his wage demands.

Both London clubs face fierce competition from Bayern Munich. It has been reported that he has already signed a contract to join the Bundesliga champions, although the German outfit have denied the claims.
