However, there's plenty of competition for the 33-year-old's signature.
Tottenham are 3/1 to be Khedira's next destination with north London rivals further back at 6/1.
Chelsea are next in the betting at 8s while Manchester City and Inter Milan complete the challengers art 10/1 and 12/1 respectively.
The 2014 World Cup winner is out of contract in June and is eligible to discuss terms overseas clubs.
However, Juventus are likely to accept a nominal fee to rid themselves of Khedira's £100,000-a-week salary.
Khedira has made 145 appearances for the Old Lady and won FIVE Serie A titles since arriving from Real Madrid in 2015.

But he's not made a competitive appearance since June having been frozen out by manager Andrea Pirlo.
Ancelotti worked with Khedira at the Bernabeu and admitted that the pair had 'kept in contact' ever since.
The Italian tactician was asked earlier this month about a reunion at Goodison Park and said: "Sami Khedira was my player at Real Madrid, an important player for us.
"I've a good memory of him but I don't think we are looking for him at this moment – maybe in January."
The player himself sent the transfer mill spinning yesterday when revealing his desire to play in the Premier League.
He told the Athletic: "The Premier League is still missing in my collection, to play there would be the icing on the cake.
"I've done extra sessions with fitness coaches to get myself ready for the pace and intensity."
