Everton and Juventus have recently become trading partners after the transfer of Moise Kean, and now it appears Carlo Ancelotti is looking to leverage that relationship for a move to get one of his most decorated former players Sami Khedira to Merseyside.
The 33-year-old midfielder has found himself frozen out at Juve under new manager Andrea Pirlo despite having won just about every honour a footballer can aspire to in a glittering career.
With his current deal expiring at the end of this season, the Italian giants are looking to offload his £184,000 per week wages as soon as they can with the former German international not having featured a single minute this season.
Khedira has spoken in recent weeks of his admiration for two of his former bosses - Ancelotti and Jose Mourinho - adding that he wanted to get a taste of the Premier League as well before he retires from the game. The player is currently in England to hold direct talks with Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and even Arsenal all linked with interest in him.
