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.
