The World Cup-winning midfielder remains tied to the Bianconeri until the summer of 2019, but has suggested that his future could lie in England

Sami Khedira has hinted that he could soon be heading to the Premier League, with the Juventus midfielder “fascinated” by English football.

The Germany international has been heavily linked with Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool in the recent past.

It was suggested that England could have been his destination when preparing to leave Real Madrid in 2015, but Juve moved quickly to snap up a World Cup winner.

Khedira still has 12 months left to run on his current contract with the Serie A giants, but it may be that he takes on a Premier League challenge when that agreement comes to an end in 2019.

Quizzed on his future by Bild, the 31-year-old said: "My contract expires in a year. I often think of the future because anything can happen. I'm fine here, but I love challenges and I look for them.

“I would like to win as many titles as possible in as many championships as possible.

“Among the best leagues in Europe I lack England, having won in Spain, Germany and Italy.

“The Premier League has always fascinated me. Winning the title there would complete my collection.

“But I do not want to nominate or propose: I'm fine in Turin and predicting the future in football is difficult.”

Khedira tasted Bundesliga title success with Stuttgart in 2006-07, before helping Real to La Liga glory in 2011-12.

He also won the Copa del Rey, Champions League and Club World Cup during his time in Spain.

Two Serie A crowns and two Coppa Italia triumphs have followed in Italy, while he formed part of the Germany side which swept to global glory at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
