Arsenal and Chelsea are on alert after Sami Khedira confirmed he will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Khedira will be available on a free transfer with a host of leading European clubs expected to be interested in him.
The Germany World Cup winner has been a fringe player under Carlo Ancelotti this season, a situation he has admitted that has "hurt" him.
Arsenal were linked with a move for the 28-year-old for most of last summer as he entered the final year of his contract.
However, Arsene Wenger's pursuit of a central midfielder may well be on the back burner now following the emergence of Francis Coquelin this campaign.
Chelsea have also been linked with a move for the midfielder also he would face stiff competition from Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas and again be limited to a bit-part role, something he is keen to leave behind.
