Khedira is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with Liverpool now and Brendan Rodgers is reportedly keen to wrap up a deal quickly as Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are also keen on the vastly experienced German international.

Liverpool have been in contact with Lyon attacking midfielder Yoann Gourcuff.
His agent Didier Poulmaire told SportMediaset: "In any market window some foreign clubs knocking at the door for Yoann. In the past it was the Manchester City, while this year it happened to Liverpool and Atletico Madrid.
"The top clubs follow him know his talent and I am sure that will come during the next market offers for him."
Meanwhile Liverpool are ready to fight it out with AS Roma for £6.6million rated Barcelona full-back Adriano, reports Calciomercato.
The Italian giants are preparing to fork out 鈧?m for the Brazilian, meaning the Reds will have to act quickly if they are to rival them for his signature at the end of the season.
Adriano is a peripheral figure at Camp Nou and Calciomercato report that both Roma and Liverpool will compete to sign him in the summer.
