A second tweeted: "COME TO THE GUNNERS YA YAAAAA Sami Khedira."
A third said: "Khedira is at the Emirates to watch Arsenal. Although not the player he once was, he is better then every midfielder currently at the club and will bring loads of experience as well as a winning mentality if he does join! Hope this one pulls through!"
A fourth added: "Give the medical team something to do now Welbeck's gone."
While another said: "Why are we not in for him? Experienced CDM with leadership qualities available for little money. Get it done Arsenal."
Khedira has less than two years left on his current contract. Will he swap Italy for England? Watch this space.
