I’ve just read a story that immediately made me revert to a Podcast episode I listened to a couple of months back now.
As a lot of the talk was about Chelsea targeting a new defender, the reliable Fabrizio Romano spoke about Chelsea’s potential targets on his Here We Go Podcast.
Chelsea have a genuine interest in signing Sergio Aguero this summer. For that and a whole lot more of the latest Chelsea transfer updates, check out my personal news website here and the latest update from our insider.
One of the names he mentioned more than once? Jerome Boateng of Bayern Munich.
There is no agreement between Chelsea and Jerome Boateng for the summer at the moment. But he IS on the list of targets Chelsea are looking at.

Jose Gimenez is Chelsea’s ‘dream’ centre back target for the summer.
It won’t be easy, he has a €120m release clause.
Sule, Boateng, and Konate also on the list.

Why is this relevant now? Well, Bayern’s sporting director has just confirmed that Boateng WILL become a free agent at the end of this season when his contract is up, and there will be no renewal, as reported by The Daily Mail.
The German international has vast experience and quality, but surely he is not the type of profile that Chelsea will be looking to recruit this summer?
But due to the reliable source of the information stating our interest, it is hard to ignore and we must keep an eye on this situation for sure.
