Norwich City, AFC Bournemouth and Watford are interested in signing Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira, according to Calciomercato.
The Championship trio have all made impressive starts to life back in the second-tier following their relegation from the Premier League last season, and are reportedly eyeing up Khedira ahead of January.
Khedira – who has won five Serie A titles with Juventus – hasn’t featured for Andrea Pirlo’s side this season, and his future in Turin looks uncertain.
The German midfielder – who has also lifted one World Cup, won one Champions League trophy and one La Liga title with Real Madrid – is out of contract at the end of the season.
Khedira is now being linked with moves to Norwich, Watford and Bournemouth, as well as Premier League side Everton, with Carlo Ancelotti plotting a reunion with the midfielder.
This would be a very surprising transfer addition for Norwich, Watford or Bournemouth.
All three sides have made strong starts to the season and are eyeing up immediate returns to the Premier League, and bringing someone of Khedira’s experience and calibre would be a massive boost for them.
It would be slightly risky to bring him in though, in my opinion. He’s now 33 years of age, and is likely to be on a hefty wage packet which could be financially troubling for the Championship clubs.
I reckon he’ll join Everton for Premier League football and a potential European push on the cards under his former boss Ancelotti.
