Hugely Experienced Centre-Back Emerge Transfer Target For Tuchel

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly keen to bring Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng to Stamford Bridge once the summer transfer window opens.

The 32-year-old has been with Bayern Munich since he made the switch from Manchester City all the way back in 2011.

Boateng has featured in 346 matches in all competitions for Bayern Munich.

During his decade in Munich, the centre-back has had a huge hand in his side lifting 24-major trophies, including two Champions League and eight Bundesliga titles.

Despite growing to become one of Germany’s most reliable defenders in modern times, Boateng has been linked with a shock move back to the Premier League.

According to a recent written report from BILD, the German defender has emerged as a transfer target for Tuchel’s Blues.
