Germany and Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira is to have a procedure on his left knee.

Juventus have an injury concern over their German international midfielder Sami Khedira.

They have released a statement concerning his current status, after not training with his teammates today.

The statement is in relation to a minor surgery that the player will have on his left knee.

The surgery is following what the club call discomfort.

The statement on the club’s official website juventus.com, read:

“Due to the persistence of discomfort in the left knee endured in recent days, Sami Khedira will undergo arthroscopic cleaning tomorrow, to be performed by Professor Ulrich Boenisch in Augsburg, Germany.”

It was widely speculated in the summer that he was not a part of Sarri’s plans.

However, Khedira has featured 17 times for Maurizio Sarri’s side so far this season.

But interestingly enough of those appearances, only two have been for the entire game.
