Wolves Opinion: Khedira would be a statement signing by Nuno Santo

According to a report from Football Italia, Wolves are interested in signing Juventus star Sami Khedira, who is also wanted by Turkish giants Besiktas and MLS clubs.

Khedira, 32, has spent four years at Juventus but found himself warming the bench for the majority of last season with just eight league starts. The midfielder has a contract with the Old Lady until June 2021 but is not part of Maurizio Sarri’s plans.

The Italian champions have signed Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey this summer, deeming Khedira surplus to requirements.

Wolves are showing what it takes to break into the Premier League’s top six. They returned to the Premier League for the first time since being relegated in 2012 but surpassed expectations by finishing seventh in the table, achieving qualification to the Europa League.

So far, Nuno Espirito Santo has been unusually quiet in the transfer window this summer having failed to add a new face to his side. The Midlands outfit have landed Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker on permanent deals following successful loan spells.

But with less than two weeks left for the summer transfer window to close, Nuno must add a few players to his squad to genuinely challenge for a place in the top six as well as go as far as possible in the Europa League next term.

Wolves, whose ambitions have no limit, already have an experienced midfielder in Joao Moutinho. He made a telling impact in his debut Premier League season and is expected to deliver the goods consistently again.

The Portuguese international’s pedigree and wealth of experience would come handy when Nuno’s side will compete in Europe.

Likewise, Khedira could also make a huge difference at the Molineux and thus, the Wanderers must go all out to land the German. The 32-year-old midfielder, who lifted the World Cup in 2014, has enjoyed a highly illustrious career having won league titles in Germany, Spain and Italy.

Khedira is capable of playing in a holding role or as a box-to-box midfielder, with superb technical ability and a liking for breaking up play before building up attacks.

He is an astute passer of the ball and would add more calmness and composure to the Wolves midfield. The ex-Real Madrid ace is immensely experienced and is exactly what Nuno’s midfield needs.

At 32, the German may not be a long term signing, but he’s still performing at the top level and could give a couple of high-quality years in the Premier League.

Verdict

Despite having a contract at Juventus until the summer of 2021, Khedira won’t break the bank for Wolves. If Nuno is to take his team higher up the table, they would need a player of Khedira’s calibre, winning mentality and experience in the midfield.
