The German centre-back admitted he loved his short time in England with Manchester City and would not rule out a return to the UK
The Gunners have been linked with the 31-year-old as Mikel Arteta looks to shore up his leaky defence.
And Bayern are said to be keen to cash in on him this summer so they don’t lose him for nothing at the end of next season.
Boateng’s deal in Bavaria runs out in summer 2021 and he said he would consider a move back to England.
The 76-cap German international told the Guardian: “I would not say no, I loved it when I was there.”
Boateng had an injury plagued season with City in the 2010/11 campaign but that hasn’t put him off a Prem return.
He added: “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 playing in the Premier League. It helped me a lot to play and train with great players.
“I am definitely down for it, but I don’t know 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.”
