Arsenal target Boateng: I love the Premier League

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng says he's open to a return to the Premier League.

Boateng looks to be leaving Bavaria this summer and a move back to England for the former Manchester City player is of interest.

"I would not say no [to a Premier League return]. I love to [watch] the Premier League, I loved also when I was there to play," Boateng said at a news conference.

"For me it was really unlucky because I got injured straight [away] and then I didn't really play the position they promised me. But I still took a lot from this year, playing in the Premier League, it helped me a lot to play and train with great players, world-class players.

"I am definitely down [for] it, but I don't know for the future. You never know. But it's not that I would say 'I never want to play there.' It's one of my favourite leagues for sure."

The Germany international has been linked with Arsenal, while Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho famously tried to sign Boateng while in charge of Manchester United.
