Arsenal And Chelsea Battle It Out For German Super Star

London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal are set to go head to head for the signature of German and Bayern Munich central defender Jerome Boateng in the summer.

Jerome has established himself as one of the most dependable defenders for the bavarians after a failed spell at premier league side Manchester city.

A return to England could now be on the cards for Boateng should he feel he still have unfinished business in the premier league with Arsenal and Chelsea chasing the player's services.

Bundesliga side Bayern have opted against extending Boateng's contract and he should be free to negotiate with other clubs as a bosman as early as January.

Arsenal will also be losing some players in the summer on a free transfer with Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastothopolous in the final years of their contracts so the Boateng deal makes perfect sense.

Chelsea are looking to add experience to their youthful squad having signed Thiago Silva in the summer a move for another free agent defender may be on the cards.
