Maybe Arsenal passed up on Cesc Fabregas because they had Sami Khedira in their sights? According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, Arsenal are plotting a £16m move for German international Khedira, who could find himself surplus to requirements if Real Madrid buy one of Juventus star Paul Pogba, PSG midfielder Marco Verratti or Chelsea's Ramires.

Elsewhere, the Gunners are being linked (by with an £8m move for Cardiff City keeper David Marshall. He would be a fine addition as back-up and competition for Wojcech Scczesny.

One of our colleagues at Sky Sports has already claimed this is bunkum (our word, not his), but are 'exclusively' reporting that 'Tottenham are ready to pay the £9 million buyout clause to sign Loic Remy from QPR but the striker is holding out for the possibility of a move to Arsenal after the World Cup'.

They suggest that the French striker sees Tottenham as a viable option but that the Gunners - with their Champions League football and shiny big stadium - would be his preferred destination.

There was talk in the Daily Telegraph on Tuesday morning that the Cesc Fabregas deal was being slightly delayed because Chelsea were so reluctant about paying a sum that would trigger a profit payment to Arsenal, but the Daily Mail website claims later on Tuesday that the £28m deal could be completed by Friday, with Diego Costa to follow for £32m. Not too shabby, that Chelsea side.

Everton are planning a move for Christian Tello...Inter are understood to be exploring the possibility of taking Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic on loan next season...Real Madrid offer Toni Kroos £4m a year...The agent of Ignacio Scocco says Boca Juniors will have to match the fee Sunderland paid in order to land the striker...Swansea are still confident of signing forward Luc Castaignos from Twente despite the deal hitting a snag...Tim Sherwood has been interviewed for the head coach's job at West Brom...Barcelona have reached a verbal agreement with Marco Reus and will now offer Dortmund £28m for him.

Get Khedira !!! He's the player who makes Ozil tick for Germany, and for Real Madrid when they played together. They're bessie mates and it's maybe no surprise they both had sub par seasons for their clubs without each other. £16m for 'Mesut's Minder' is a bargain in my opinion, as he's the holding CM we've been needing for seasons now. I'd love Cesc to come back of course , but Khedira's a better fit for us right now , and will boost Ozil's confidence massively. Think to the future, not of the past.
