Cape Town - Arsenal coach Unai Emery admits that Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira is 'a very good player' amid links with the Gunners.

Respected Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri tweeted on Monday that Khedira – who was spotted in the crowd at the Emirates on Sunday – is “close” to joining Arsenal.

World Cup winner Khedira still has a year left on his contract at Juventus, but has been told he can leave the Serie A champions this summer following the arrivals in midfield of Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey.

And Palmeri is adamant in his belief that Khedira will sign; that despite Gunners boss Unai Emery looking to play down the rumour when questioned after the game.

“Khedira is a very good player but this is the first time I have heard his name mentioned,” Emery said.

And now Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sportsmole) claim that there is a two-year contract on the table for Khedira ‘worth £70 000 per week’.

The report adds that the offer falls £36 000 a week short of his current wage packet and the World Cup winner will take his time deciding on whether to accept.
