Reports circulating from Spain on Thursday morning suggest that Liverpool are putting moves in place to capture the signing of German World Cup winner Sami Khedira, a player who is also being monitored by Chelsea and wanted by Jose Mourinho.

The 27-year-old midfielder will be available on a free transfer in the summer and can sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs now. It will be interesting to see if Chelsea move to intercept any offers from Liverpool and allow Khedira to team up with Mourinho once again, who does not hide the fact he is an admirer of the German international.

Khedira is a defensive style midfielder who provides a decent aerial threat as well as working tirelessly for the team. He’s considered a key member of the German National side, appearing 53 times thus far. There will be a number of other clubs monitoring this situation and preparing offers.
