Arsenal are interested in signing Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng, according to Sky Germany.
The 31-year-old, who is mainly a central defender but can also play the full back, wants to leave the Bundesliga this winter.
Bayern would be ready to let him leave for around £ 12.8 million (€ 15 million) this month. However, they don’t have many suitable defenders with Lucas Hernandez ready to return later than expected after the injury.
Regardless, a winter transfer for the German national team, which made over 300 appearances for Bayern and won seven consecutive German titles and the 2013 Champions League, has not been ruled out.
Sky Sports News he understands that at this point clashes are unlikely to occur after the club invested £ 150 million for new players in the summer and with central defender William Saliba due to the return from his loan to St. Etienne in the summer .
The central defender of RB Leipzig Dayot Upamecano is a player that the Gunners were excited about in the summer, but Leipzig is not expected to sell in January as they are at the top of the Bundesliga and fighting for the title, and also in the Champions League in the last few 16.
New Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said the club’s transfer plans may have changed following news that defender Calum Chambers has been out for nine months due to a knee injury.
