Sami Khedira in talks with Everton over possible free transfer
Sami Khedira is in talks with Everton over a possible move in January that would see him reunite with coach Carlo Ancelotti.
The German World Cup winner is currently at Juventus but has been free to leave since the summer after being kicked from the Serie A squad list by new boss Andrea Pirlo.
Khedira joined Juventus on a free transfer from Real Madrid in 2015, after being coached by Ancelotti at the Bernabeu to win a Champions League trophy.
His current contract with Juventus will expire at the end of the season and with the January transfer window soon open, he is free to negotiate with the clubs on his next move. Juventus are unlikely to prevent her from leaving early, as they offered to terminate her contract this summer.
Ancelotti has confirmed that Everton could potentially be interested in a move for the 33-year-old central midfielder.
“Sami Khedira was my player at Real Madrid, an important player for us,” he said, via Daily Mail. “I have fond memories of him but I don’t think we’re looking for him right now. Maybe in January. “
Khedira has also been linked with a move to other Premier League clubs, including Tottenham, but they will likely have to offload players before bringing someone in due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If he joined Everton, he would compete for a place in midfield against players like Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan, Andre Gomes and Tom Davies.
In his pomp, Khedira was a glorious box-to-box midfielder. He won the World Cup with the national team, scoring in the famous 7-1 victory over Brazil. He also won La Liga with Real Madrid, two Copa del Rey trophies, five Serie A titles with Juventus and a Bundesliga title with Stuttgart in 2007.
