Arsenal are keen on a move for Germany international Sami Khedira according to reports.

It is understood that the Gunners are looking into a £23m move for the Real Madrid man, as they look to strengthen their squad before the start of next season.

The 27-year-old, who is currently on World Cup duty in Brazil, and preparing for a last-16 clash with Algeria, has been continuously linked with an exit from Real Madrid this summer.

It is believed that Jose Mourinho is interested in linking up with his former charge by adding him to Chelsea's squad, but now it appears that Arsene Wenger is prepared to battle his old adversary for the German's signature.

Khedira has been in the Spanish capital for four years, arriving from Stuggart, and according to reports, Wenger hopes he could have a positive effect on fellow German international Mesut Ozil.

Wenger, who is out in Brazil as a pundit for a French television channel, will have a chance to see Khedira in action this Monday when Germany take on the Fennec Foxes of Algeria in Porto Alegre.
