Boateng linked with Bayern exit

Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich will be missing Jerome Boateng against Liverpool tonight after the defender was struck down by gastroenteritis.

Jerome Boateng’s time at Bayern Munich could be drawing to an end amid reports Juventus are looking to sign the former Germany international.

Boateng has been linked with a move away from the Bavarian giants through the summer but with the deadline day on Monday night getting closer, it looked like Boateng could stay at the Allianz Arena.

However, reports in Italy have suggested Juve could look to get a deal over the line for the centre-back on Monday as they seek a replacement for the injured Georgio Chiellini.

The Juve talisman could be out on the sidelines for the next six months and the Old Lady are believed to have identified Boateng as the ideal replacement for the Italian.
