The Germany international has effectively been frozen out at the Allianz Stadium and is eagerly seeking a change in scenario.

Sami Khedira admits he has been ramping up his fitness levels as he targets a move to the Premier League.

The midfielder has no future at Juventus by the looks of things and is expected to quit the club when the transfer window reopens, with interest reported from Tottenham and Everton.

He is yet to play a single minute for the Italian champions this season having last made an appearance for the Turin club back in June.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, the German will be free to hold talks with other clubs over a pre-contract agreement come January.

After winning Bundesliga, La Liga, Champions League, and multiple Serie A titles, among a host of other trophies, the 33-year-old World Cup winner feels there is still something ‘missing in his collection’ and is readying himself for a new challenge.

“The Premier League is still missing in my collection, to play there would be the icing on the cake,” Khedira told in an exclusive interview with The Athletic.

“There are fewer breaks in the game and many counter-attacks, but this is what I like. I’ve done extra sessions with fitness coaches to get myself ready for the pace and intensity in the Premier League. 

“My gut instinct and passion tell me I need to play football, if possible in the Premier League. I’m working towards that.”
