According to Daily Express, Chelsea and Arsenal are set to go head-to-head in an effort to sign Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng this summer.
The World Cup winner is entering the final year of his contract at Bayern Munich and he is expected to leave the German club at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old has notched up 25 appearances across all competitions for Bayern this season but there has been no contract talks with the German club over an extension and the return from injury of Niklas Sule appears to be hastening the World Cup winner’s exit.
German club Hertha Berlin are also interested in signing the 31 year old centre-back.
