According to a report from Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, alleged West Ham and Wolves target Sami Khedira could be tempted into a move to London in order to follow his girlfriend Melanie Leupolz, who recently signed for Chelsea women.

Calcio Mercato claimed earlier this month that the Hammers and Wolves want to sign the German World Cup winner this summer.
David Moyes will undoubtedly be keen to strengthen his central midfield options this summer.
Mark Noble will soon be 33, and it is clear to see that he has regressed this season. Whilst Carlos Sanchez is being widely tipped for an exit from the club.
And Khedira, despite his problems with injuries over the years, might just be a decent stop-gap signing for West Ham.
The 2014 Champions League winner is clearly not the player he once was. But he is still a top class performer on his day.
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).
At 33, however, Khedira might find it difficult to make the transition from Serie A to the Premier League.
Juve are thought to be keen to offload the World Cup winner. So West Ham might just be able to pick him up for a bargain fee.
And judging by Calcio Mercato’s report, the east London outfit could have a key advantage over Wolves.
Will Khedira be worth the risk for the Hammers, however?
Only time will tell.
