Sami Khedira is still hopeful of sealing a move to Arsenal this summer despite suggestions that the Gunners have given up trying to sign him.

Khedira looked all but certain to move to the Emirates Stadium two weeks ago when his agent held talks with the Gunners over a transfer.

However, the deal has since stalled because of the German’s wage demands, and Arsenal are now apparently looking at other options, including converting Jack Wilshere into a defensive midfielder.
