Sami Khedira is eager to join Bayern Munich as Real Madrid attempt to offload the Germany midfielder this summer, sources have told ESPN FC.

Bayern saw Javi Martinez suffer an anterior cruciate ligament injury earlier this month and coach Pep Guardiola has said in Bild that "it would be nice" to reinforce.

It is thought that the priority is to add a centre-back -- with Roma's Medhi Benatia and Atletico Madrid's Diego Godin emerging as the favourites -- but they could yet move for a defensive midfielder, with Bayer Leverkusen's Gonzalo Castro also touted as a target.

Real are contemplating the sale of Khedira -- as well as Angel Di Maria -- in order to raise the necessary funds for a striker, specifically Monaco's Radamel Falcao.
