Gary Lineker says Arsenal could follow-up their signing of Alexis Sanchez by bringing in Sami Khedira – as well as Mathieu Debuchy.

The Gunners completed the signing of Sánchez from Barcelona on Thursday in a deal believed to be worth around £35m following weeks of speculation linking the Chile forward with the north London club.

Arsenal are thought to be close to concluding a deal to bring in Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United as a right-back replacement for Bacary Sagna.

Real Madrid midfielder Khedira has also been touted as a target for the north Londoners as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his midfield options.

And former England international Lineker feels that the Gunners would be serious Premier League title contenders next season if they do bring in Khedira as well as Debuchy.

Lineker tweeted: “If AFC wrap up deals with Alexis Sanchez & Debuchy, & get Khedira, which I hear is possible, they could well win the title.”

He added: “Alexis Sánchez is a fabulous signing for Arsenal and a great addition to the Premier League.”
