Javi Martinez’s horror cruciate ligament injury in the German Super Cup has left Bayern Munich short both in midfield and defence, as the Basque covers both positions for Pep Guardiola’s outfit.
And with Thiago Alcantara not back until October now, Bayern are in the market for someone to fill in for Martinez, Bild claim, as he’s set to miss the next 6 months.
The German paper claim that Arsenal target Sami Khedira tops their list, with two La Liga defenders, Diego Godin and Khedira’s teammate Raphael Varance also on their radar.
With Madrid having left Khedira out of their Super Cup squad, he seems to be the most viable option for Bayern, especially as both Godin (€36m) and Varane €200m!) have significant buy-out clauses.
