Jerome Boateng responds to transfer interest from Tottenham Hotspur

Speaking to Suddeutsche Zeitung, as reported by Football.london, Bayern Munich and Germany defender Jerome Boateng has revealed that he was surprised to learn about interest in his services from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 32-year-old came through the youth ranks at German outfit Hertha Berlin. He left the club to join Hamburger SV in 2007 and spent three years at the club, before signing for Manchester City in 2010. Boateng lasted just one season in England, however, as he returned to Germany in 2011, joining Bayern Munich.

During his time at the club, the veteran centre-back has seen great heights, establishing himself as one of the top defenders in the game. Boateng has gone on to win a host of trophies for club and country over the last decade.

However, his future at the club has been called into question as he is in the final year of his contract with the reigning German and European champions. This has seen Tottenham get linked with a move for the 32-year-old, something that has come as a surprise for the centre-back. (h/t Football.london)

“Nobody approached me, nobody spoke to me, I didn’t know anything about it, I was surprised.”

Boateng did not have the most pleasant of experiences in England the last time. However, in a past interview with the Guardian (h/t Football.london), he admitted that he would be open to another shot at Premier League football.

“I am definitely down for it, but I don’t know for the future.”

Boateng is an experienced customer and would add value to the side. However, he has shown signs of slowing down of late and might find it hard to cope with the pace of Premier League football. It will be interesting to see if the club does make a move for him.
