Bayern Munich and Jerome Boateng will be parting ways after this season, but it does not appears as if the 32-year-old center-back is destined to ride out the rest of his career is a retirement league.

Nope, Boateng is drawing major interest from the Premier League. Tottenham Hotspur is the club most actively linked to Boateng, while both Chelsea and Manchester United had previously interest in the defender.

Now, however, Arsenal is the latest power club to show interest in Boateng (per The Express):

Arsenal are hoping to beat bitter rivals Tottenham to the summer signing of Jerome Boateng on a free transfer, according to reports. The 32-year-old will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the campaign after it was officially announced that he would not be offered an extension to his current contract.

Arsenal appear set to become the next club to enter the race for his signature in the coming months, according to Sky Sport Germany. The Gunners are firmly in contention to land the experienced centre-back but it is claimed that Spurs are in pole position to secure his services. Boateng is reportedly keen on a return to the Premier League after leaving Manchester City to join Bayern a decade ago.

Boateng as a Gunner? Say it ain’t so.
