A Needed Veteran

Khedira will provide a veteran presence in the midfield for a Hertha Berlin side who are struggling to remain consistent in the Bundesliga. Currently, the club from Germany’s capital city are 15th in the table and are trying to avoid being put in a relegation position. By adding Khedira they will solidify a midfield that has largely underperformed so far this season.

The 33-year-old will be joining Hertha until June of 2023 as reported by Fabrizio Romano. A long-term deal ensures Hertha Berlin will have the veteran player available as they work towards becoming a contender for the European places in the Bundesliga. However, at the moment, Khedira will be tasked with helping the club move out of the bottom five places in the Bundesliga.

Attacking Reinforcements

Hertha Berlin have also completed the signing of Serbian winger Radonjic on loan from Marseille. The club’s official announcement also noted there is an option to buy at the end of the loan spell. Radonjic will provide another attacking option on the wings as Hertha Berlin have been struggling to score goals in recent weeks. They have scored just two goals in their last five matches in the German top flight.

Radonjic joined Marseille during the summer transfer window in 2018 and went on to make 62 appearances for the Ligue 1 club with eight goals and three assists. He is a player who could emerge as a diamond in the rough type of signing as he looks to have more of an impact during his time in the Bundesliga. Hertha Berlin needs assistance with creating and scoring goals and Radonjic could prove to be a key signing when it comes to goal production.
