Arsenal battling two London rivals for soon-to-be free agent

Arsenal is battling Chelsea and Tottenham for the signature of Jerome Boateng after he reaches the end of his time in Germany with Bayern Munich.

The World Cup winner is set to become a free agent in the summer after Bayern decided against giving him a new deal.

He has been with the German giants since joining them from Manchester City 10 years ago.

He has had a fruitful time at the Bundesliga side, winning two Champions League titles among other major honours.

He will enter the free agency market as one of the best players on offer in Europe.

Arsenal has continued to struggle at the back and the experienced David Luiz hasn’t been that consistent.

The Gunners will likely add another defender in the summer and the winning experience of Boateng makes him a good candidate.

Sky Germany via Mirror Football says the 32-year-old is being targeted by the Premier League trio and he wants a return to the competition.

Jose Mourinho’s Spurs have reportedly moved ahead of Arsenal and the Blues, but the player hasn’t signed yet and that means the Gunners can still win the race for his signature.

    Is this true? If so, will we never learn?

  2. Assndir says:

    If he manages to consistently put in that performance that he did tonight against PSG, then why not? Just don’t give the guy a massive contract.

  3. Assndir says:

    Oh yeah, sorry, he’s 32

    Actually glad to lose this player to the spuds. His expiration date was several years ago.

    Hard pass on another 30+ player with best years behind him. Surely it’s a wind up, this is real life not fifa21.

  5. RFrancis says:

    We would be better off re-signing Shkodran Mustafi!

  6. Joe. S says:

    Here we go again. Another wash up who played his best football five years ago. Just what Arsenal need to keep William, Auba and David Luiz company.

      A 32 year old keeper like Cech yes.
      Any one else 32 years old no.
      Would have to give him a three year contract and fat salarywith no performance clauses. After Socritis Mustafi Luiz Ozil Auba Willian Kolasinac Ramsey Sanchez Mkhitaryan Podolski Debuchi we surely have learned a neccessary painful expensive lesson.
      We must focus on under 25, low transfer fee, short contracts, low base salary with win bonuses.
      Boateng was great… was

    Why are Arsenal even being linked with a defender, and that too who is 32, and well past his prime. Arsenal have got Mavropanos, Saliba, and Ballard on loan who are quite ready and can step up to the first team. And they have a couple of young defenders in the U23s as well.

  8. PJ-SA says:

    Good representation of what Arsenal has become to the world. The fact that we are continuously linked with players like this is the proof that we are now seen as a joke club globally.

    Many of the fans on here wanted Tuchel when it was a strong possibility, we got MA instead.

  9. Armoury says:

    At ManCity, he was the slowest defender, at a young age. Lets hope at the age of 32yrs, his speed has increased. Typical Arteta, he prefers ageing players. Discarded from Bayern, but at Arsenal he’ll be regarded as super signing. Is this rebuilding?

  10. Arsenal2win says:

    The guy’s good, but at 32, no. We still have Saliba & Mavropanos, though Arsenal doesn’t value their own.

  11. JEMMAN says:

    Wait a minute! Has Arsenal really become a dumping site, a Jerome Boateng, are you kidding me? Is it a sign of how the club is negatively and tactical winding up to stand still. I must go to International Court Arbitration for this.
