Two Premier League clubs have been linked with a move for Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira ahead of the January transfer window. This is according to the latest reports in the British media space. West Ham United and Everton are the two teams eyeing a transfer for Sami Khedira who has not featured for Juventus this season.

Sami Khedira has been frozen out of the first team picture at the Juventus Stadiumby new manager Andrea Pirlo. The former Juve midfielder was named the manager in the summer as a replacement for the sacked Maurizio Sarri. Ex-Empoli and Napoli manager Sarri lost his job at Juventus despite winning the league. The Italians have now won the last eight league titles.

Sami Khedira is likely to leave Juventus at the start of next year if Pirlo continues to overlook him. The Juve boss has opted for younger options in midfield with the likes of Adrien Rabiot, Rodrigo Bentancur, DejanKulusevski and loanee Winston McKennie. The German has had reduced roles at Juventus in the past seasons due to injuries and stiff competition in midfielder but it was not as bad as the current season. Khedira, 33, is yet to play for the Old Lady this season despite being available for sessions. In stark contrast, he made 18 appearances for Juve throughout the whole of last season.

Interested clubs West Ham and Everton have done well in the Premier League this season and both are ambitious teams especially the Toffees. The two teams are in the top half of the Premier League table. The Hammers are in eighth spot on the league standings having amassed 14 points from nine games. On their part, Everton have 16 points and they are in sixth position on the Premier League standings. The Toffees signed a big name player in James Rodriguez in the summer and another big name player in Sami Khedira could follow him to Goodison Park.

In January, the 2010 FIFA World Cup winner can start to speak with foreign teams over a potential free transfer move. His Juve contract expires next summer and it remains to be seen if Juve will cancel his contract to allow him move to another club on a free transfer at the start of the year.
