According to Sky Germany, Tottenham Hotspur is looking to beat London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea to the signing of Jerome Boateng.
Tottenham want Jerome Boateng
Bayern Munich has revealed that they would not be renewing the 32-year-old centre-back’s contract at the end of the season. This has seen him linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs.
Boateng has won every trophy at his disposal while at Bayern and, after having spent a season in the Premier League with Manchester City in 2010-11, he is said to be keen on having another go at England’s top flight. His experience in the Premier League is certainly a bonus for would-be suitors.
Spurs are looking to bolster their defence, having conceded 35 goals in 31 Premier League games this season, and Boateng’s winning attitude would be perfect for Jose Mourinho’s revamped plans for the north London club.
Mourinho faces pressure from Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona, who are also said to be interested in the player.
