According to a report from Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, West Ham and Wolves could be set for a summer battle for Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira.

The Hammers will certainly be keen to bolster their central midfield ranks in the summer. Wolves, meanwhile, are fairly well-stocked in the middle of the park.

It is unclear as to when the transfer window will actually open at the moment, however, considering the ongoing pandemic that has slowed the world down with a bang.

Calcio Mercato still suggest that West Ham and Wolves are eyeing moves for Juventus ace Khedira, however.

Good signing for the Hammers?

Well, the links to the 32-year-old do seem strange in all fairness. David Moyes recently suggested that he will be trying to sign young and hungry players for West Ham in the future.

And the German World Cup winner clearly doesn’t fit into that category.

 

Khedira has a terrible record with injuries as well. He has had two knee surgeries in the last 11 months.

The 2014 Champions League winner is clearly not the player he once was. And it would be incredibly hard for him to adjust to the frenetic pace of the Premier League having come from Serie A.

Khedira is a defensive midfielder by trade. In 12 Serie A outings for Juventus this season, the German has averaged 1.2 tackles, 0.4 interceptions and 0.9 clearances. He averages 25.5 passes per game with an impressive completion rate of 88.2% (Who Scored).

As mentioned earlier, however, West Ham should be targeting younger, hungrier and more mobile players than Khedira. And the same could be said for Wolves.

Nuno Espirito Santo already has Joao Moutinho, 33, so he will surely be keen to inject some youth into his engine room this summer.
