While the Alexis Sanchez signing was indeed great on the heart, a lot of it will go to waste if Arsenal are not able to find someone suitable to do the holding midfield job. While Sami Khedira is not the typical defensive midfielder and is rather the anchor man Arsenal could do with someone like him screening the back four. His huge experience and his undoubted talent means that Arsenal will have another world class talent at their disposal. If reports are to be believed Sami Khedira has rejected a new contract at Real Madrid and wants to join his national teammate Mesut Ozil at Arsenal.
Although Khedira maynot be as effective as the likes of Javi Martinez, Lars Bender and Morgan Schneiderlin as he is not your typical dirty minded defensive midfielder and is more of a box to box central midfielder with a knack of winning the ball back, his presence could certainly be a boost and add to the German contingency at Arsenal. It is a known fact that both Mertesacker and Ozil are on great terms with the Real Madrid midfielder evident from their International camps, which could mean that Ozil will have someone alongside him whom he knows in and out. A mixture of British and German core at the Emirates could make life easier for Wenger.
