Chelsea and Arsenal are "interested" in Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng.
The 31-year-old was strongly linked to a move to the Allianz Arena in January, when he saw his playing time reduced with Hans-Dieter Flick.
But the German international chose to stay and fight for his place.
A decision that paid off, with Boating starting all but two Bayern games since the turn of the year.
But with just over a year in his current contract with the Bundesliga giants, his long-term future is still in doubt.
And according to Christian Falk, from the German publication Bild, Chelsea have now joined Arsenal because they are interested in a move to Boateng.

Frank Lampard cut and changed his defense throughout the season, and the Blues boss should be given a big transfer budget to improve his team in the summer.
Mikel Arteta is believed to be interested in improving his defensive options, despite the possibility of linking Pablo Mari to a permanent loan in January.
