Arsenal In Fresh Trouble Over Jerome Boateng Transfer Race

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng is no doubt very unhappy with the Bundesliga champions and wants to leave the club in the winter window after failing to hold down his place as a guaranteed starter this season.

Arsenal, who have been leading the chase for the German centre-back, have reportedly been joined by AC Milan in the transfer race.

Milan seriously need to bolster their backline and look close to agreeing a deal with Seville for Simon Kjaer.

But Sky Sports claim the Italian giants do not only want Kjaer, and want to add 31-year-old Boateng, who can also play at full-back, into their squad this month.

Bayern are happy to sell the unhappy Bayern Munich defender Boateng but will demand £12.8million.

GoalBall understands that Emirates chiefs have enquired about a transfer fee, potential loan options and Boateng's wages.
