Joshua Kimmich targeted by Liverpool amidst Bayern Munich turmoil

Liverpool is reportedly eyeing a summer move for Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich. The relationship between the German midfielder and manager Thomas Tuchel appears to have soured. This development comes amidst Bayern’s disappointing season, where they are currently eight points behind Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.

Joshua Kimmich has been a key figure for Bayern Munich. According to reports, he is ‘extremely annoyed’ with Tuchel after being left on the bench against Leverkusen earlier this month. The midfielder’s frustration reportedly escalated when he was substituted after 70 minutes in a game against Bochum, leading to an altercation with Tuchel’s assistant, Zsolt Löw. This has led to a breakdown in trust between Kimmich and Tuchel, with the midfielder potentially seeking a summer exit.

Liverpool shows interest to sign Joshua Kimmich

According to recent reports, Liverpool, along with Manchester City, are interested to sign Kimmich. Bayern Munich are reportedly willing to let him go for a fee around £43 million. Kimmich, who is considered ‘world-class at right-back and in midfield’, would be a valuable addition to Liverpool’s squad, regardless of who their next manager may be.

The potential acquisition of Joshua Kimmich would be a significant boost for Liverpool, as they look to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season. The Reds are looking to compete for major honors both domestically and in Europe. So, Joshua Kimmich’s versatility and experience at the highest level make him an attractive option.

Therefore, with the summer transfer window approaching, Liverpool will be closely monitoring Kimmich’s situation at Bayern Munich. If the midfielder becomes available, the Reds are expected to make a move for him, as they look to build a squad capable of challenging for silverware next season.
