- Jerome Boateng could be on his way to join Premier League side Arsenal
- Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants to bolster his squad before the transfer window closes
- Boateng has been playing for Bayern Munich for the past 10 years
Premier League side Arsenal have reportedly indicated their interest in signing Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng and they will have to meet his release clause.
Bayern Munich are also said to be ready to allow the 31-year-old German international to leave the club only if they get £12.8m.
According to the report by Sky Germany, Jerome Boateng himself is ready to leave Bayern Munich where he has been playing since the 2011/22 German Bundesliga season.
Since 2011, Jerome Boateng has played more than 300 games for Bayern Munich and won seven successive German titles and the 2013 Champions League.
The report added that new Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants to bolster his squad and he sees Jerome Boateng as a player who can be of great advantage to his team.
Defender Calum Chambers is out for up to nine months with a knee injury and Arteta believes Boateng will be a good replacement at the Emirates stadium.
And should Arsenal get the deal done on Jerome Boateng, then the Germany international will be making a return to the Premier League.
Boateng joined Manchester City in 2010 from Hamburger SV and only played a season at the Etihad Stadium before he joined Bayern Munich.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently occupying 10th position on the Premier League standings with 27 points after 21 games played this season.
