It’s Friday, and it means Christian Falk is back with transfer updates on Bild.
One of the rumours the journalist approaches today is the potential signing of Jerome Boateng by Tottenham Hotspur.
The defender’s contract with Bayern Munich expires at the end of the season, and as already announced, he’ll be moving to a new side as a free agent when the campaign ends.
“Yes, from the people we heard about the potential interest and that the player very well could imagine a move to London at the moment,” Christian Falk told Bild.
“Nothing has been said yet, there are no concrete talks, but just that his name appears on the shortlist. I think his stock has gone up a bit because we saw him playing against Paris Saint Germain and he was used to defend against Neymar. It was good publicity for the man.”
Despite having his final year at Bayern Munich, Boateng has been getting regular playing time at the club, starting most matches, with 33 appearances so far.
Signed on a €13.5m deal from Manchester City back in 2011, Boateng will be leaving the German side with over 350 games played for them.
That time has included two Champions League titles and eight Bundesliga trophies, which could become nine in case they confirm their winning campaign next month.
Earlier this week, Sky Germany had already claimed Tottenham have been holding ‘concrete talks’ for Boateng’s arrival in London.
