French side to go up against Spurs and City.
Ligue 1 newcomers Monaco are reportedly set to go up against Tottenham and Manchester City in the race to sign AC Milan midfielder Kevin Prince-Boateng, according to talkSPORT.
News broke earlier this month that Spurs were preparing to bring the German born Ghanaian international back to White Heart Lane three seasons after he left from failing to make an impact at the club. Manchester City were also alleged to be interested but it’s thought that they won’t be making any moves until a new manager is in place at The Etihad.
The 26-year-old struggled to establish himself in the Spurs squad the first time around and after a short loan spell with Borussia Dortmund he quickly left for Portsmouth where he managed to win the FA Cup before leaving to flourish in Serie A with the Milan giants.
However, his availability has triggered interest from Monaco, who are brimming with cash since being bought by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev in 2011.
Rybolovlev is hoping to turn Monaco into title contenders in their first season back in Ligue 1 next year and could launch a move Boateng after making tentative enquiries.
Boateng has made 98 appearances for the Serie A giants, scoring 15 goals.
