Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing 29-year-old Union Berlin midfielder Rani Khedira.

According to a report from 90min, Liverpool and Tottenham have been keeping tabs on 29-year-old German midfielder Rani Khedira. And the two Premier League clubs could look to make a move for him at the end of the season.

Rani Khedira, the brother of World Cup winner Sami Khedira, will be out of contract this summer, and he could be signed on a free transfer. The 29-year-old has been a key player for Union Berlin this season, and he is their vice-captain.

His departure as a free agent will certainly come as a blow to the German club. But he could prove to be a very useful addition for Liverpool or Tottenham. Liverpool need to add more depth to their midfield, especially considering the impending departure of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner.

The trio will be out of contract in the summer, and the Reds have reportedly decided not to extend their contracts. Meanwhile, Tottenham need to add more depth in order to rotate their midfield. And Khedira would be an ideal fit at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 29-year-old is the brother of World Cup winner Sami Khedira. And the opportunity to join a big club like Liverpool or Tottenham could be a tempting proposition for him. The German midfielder is at the peak of his career right now. And he has the ability to thrive in the Premier League.

Furthermore, Khedira can operate in a number of positions in the midfield and defence. He can play as a central midfielder, a defensive midfielder, a centre-back, and a right-back. His versatility will be an added bonus for Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte.

Neither club is blessed with enormous financial resources. So Liverpool and Tottenham should look to pick up bargains when the opportunity arises. They have also shown interest in Anton Stach. And Khedira could prove to be a superb acquisition on a free transfer, and the move could look like a bargain if he manages to adapt to English football quickly.

Both clubs are currently fighting for a place in the Champions League next season. And whoever finishes in the top four could have an edge in the transfer race. The 29-year-old will certainly want to join the club competing at the highest level.
