Arsenal and Chelsea are among the clubs ready to battle-it-out over a deal to sign Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng on a free transfer next summer, according to Sport Bild via The Sun. The Daily Mirror believes it may be so, with the paper quoting Portuguese outlet Record as saying Manchester United have made a formal offer to the 35-year-old's agent.

Despite recent praise from manager Hansi Flick for his performances, however, the Bayern hierarchy have decided against offering the defender an extension and the news, according to Sport Bild has put a trio of Premier League clubs on alert.

Boateng arrived to Munich from Manchester City in 2011 from Manchester City, and has gone on to win the Bundesliga eight times with the Bavarians, along with five DFB-Pokal and two Champions League trophies.

Boateng alone can not solve any defensive issues at Arsenal, but his experience and attitude should undoubtedly boost those around him.

But certainly, we're not in the position at this point to advise people that it's safe to come home for Christmas. The public health advice has been that this is what is required to ensure that a person does not have the virus.

If Bayern allow Boateng to leave in the summer, they will urgently need a new centre-back, especially with David Alaba also set to depart on a free transfer.

Tottenham are watching closely too with Boateng exactly the kind of grizzled victor Jose Mourinho, who tried to sign the German at Manchester United, tends to hang his hat on. His current deal expires at the end of the season.

We'll have to wait and see how things develop over the coming weeks but Boateng will be able to agree a pre-contract agreement with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs from January so we could see his future resolved this winter.
