AC Milan threaten Arsenal plans for Bayern Munich defender Boateng

AC Milan are threatening Arsenal plans for Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng.

Sky Sport says the Gunners have already been in contact with Bayern Munich over the 31-year-old as they bid to bolster their defensive options in January.

Boateng is reportedly keen to leave this month in order to improve his chances of regular first-team football, though Bayern have stated previously they expect him to stay put.

Bayern would be willing to accept an offer in the region of £12.8m (15m euros), which has opened the door for Milan to muscle in on Arsenal's interest.

The Serie A giants are hopeful of landing another centre-back, in addition to Sevilla's Simon Kjaer who is close to a move to the San Siro.
