Everton are ahead of Tottenham in the race to sign Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira who could terminate his contract with the Old Lady in January, sources tell Football Italia.
The German midfielder has yet to make an appearance with the Serie A giants so far this season and Andrea Pirlo has left him out of the Champions League squad list.
Juventus have been trying to offer Khedira a compensation to end early his €6m-a-year contract but the former Real Madrid man has refused any offer he has received so far.
The 33-year-old, however, is now more open to accepting a different destination and could fulfil his dream to play in the Premier League.
In a recent interview, he said he’d like to work under José Mourinho again, but sources have told Football Italia Everton are now the closest club to sign him.
The Toffees’ boss Carlo Ancelotti revealed last week he has good memories of him at Real Madrid and would like to coach him again.
Khedira’s Juventus contract runs until June 2021.
