Sami Khedira could still make the switch from Juventus to a Premier League side even though the transfer window is shut.

According to the British news outlet, The Star, Juventus are exploring the option of simply terminating Khedira’s contract and thus making him a free agent.

It widely rumoured that Wolverhampton Wanderers had agreed on a deal with Juve for the German international. There were also offers from several Turkish teams and MLS teams too.

The apparent fact of the matter is, the player wants a move to London.

Arsenal and Spurs probably had the best transfer windows out of all the Premier League clubs in terms of attaining targets.

But Khedira is widely believed to still appeal to both teams if a deal can be done.

At 32 years of age, the former Real Madrid man can still bring a lot to the table for both teams.

He has a wealth of experience at the highest level.

It remains to be seen how Juventus will handle the situation.

Khedira arrived at Juve on a free. Although they will have paid a sizeable signing bonus at the time, they will be more aggrieved at paying his huge wages fro him to train and watch.

The situation is not ideal for either party.

The arrival of new manager Maurizio Sarri has seen several high profile players such as Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and Sami Khedira shown the door.

They either need to find a buyer who interests the player in a country where the transfer window is still open.

Continue to pay him until the next transfer window and hop a buyer can be found.

Or terminate his contract and let him go where he pleases.

Khedira’s future is in Juve’s hands, but Arsenal and Tottenham could still make a key addition to their respective squads.
