Fiorentina fight Arsenal for Khedira

Fiorentina will use tonight’s Real Madrid friendly to discuss Sami Khedira, also a target for Arsenal.

The Viola face the reigning European Champions in Warsaw this evening at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

According to Tuttosport and Sportmediaset, their directors will use the opportunity to make an offer for midfielder Khedira.

There are conflicting reports on how much Real Madrid are asking for, as Italian media suggest €10m (£8m) compared to Metro newspaper in England’s €25m (£20.6m).

Khedira does not seem to be in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans despite winning the World Cup with Germany this summer.

His wage demands are an issue for Fiorentina at €3.5m per season.
