Unai Emery reportedly wanted to secure services of German midfielder Sami Khedira to Arsenal during the summer, however, failed in a move for the Juventus anchorman.

Calciomercato report that both Arsenal and Manchester United have failed in a move to sign the ex-Real Madrid midfielder, with his long-term future in Turin up in the air during the summer transfer window.

The arrival of another German midfielder Emre Can from Liverpool cast doubts over the amount of first-team football time Khedira would get at the Allianz Stadium this campaign, with the German not getting younger and reaching the latter stages of his career.

He was rumoured with several moves away from the Serie A champions but opted to stay in Turin and reunite with his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Instead, he put pen to paper on a new deal with the Old Lady recently, keeping him with the Italian champions until 2021.

Emery made the midfield one of the key areas he had to strengthen this season and did just that through the signings of Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira.
