English Premier League side Arsenal is in talks with Bayern Munich over the signing of defender, Jerome Boateng in this January’s transfer window.
According to Sky Sports, Bayern are demanding £12.75million fee for the former German centre-back.
The 31-year-old who has made just 15 appearances for Bayern this season, lost his place to Benjamin Pavard and David Alaba.
Naija News reports that Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta had admitted that the Gunners are keen to strengthen their defensive options this January with defender, Calum Chamber suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament injury.
Arteta said: “My obligation is to give my opinion on the things we can improve.
“Obviously we have a bad injury with Calum a few days ago that will change our plans at the back.
“The reality is we will not be able to do much. I’m more concerned about getting players back from injury and try to improve the players I have here, get everybody on board and understanding what we’re trying to do.
“And if something extra comes up and we think it is the right opportunity to improve what we have, then let’s do it.”
