Joshua Kimmich ready to consider Liverpool move

Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich is ready to consider a move to Liverpool during the summer transfer window.

The Germany international has been a mainstay for the Bavarian giants for the past eight-and-a-half years, but he could be heading for a new challenge at the end of the campaign.

His present contract with the Bundesliga holders expires at the end of next season. As things stand, there has been no positive progress over a fresh long-term deal at the club.

This could pave the way for his departure and Florian Plettenberg claims that Liverpool are one of five European teams that Kimmich would consider joining during the summer.

Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona are other preferred choices for the 29-year-old.

Kimmich is open to discussing with potential buyers with Bayern prepared to sell. It is reported that some of the above-mentioned clubs have already contacted the versatile ace.

Liverpool move could depend on asking price

Kimmich is undoubtedly a fantastic midfielder and he has proved himself at the top level with Bayern for almost a decade.

The German has not been at his best this season due to a couple of short-term injuries. He has still fared impressively with one goal and eight assists from 31 appearances for Bayern.

Kimmich has predominantly played from the number six role for Thomas Tuchel’s side, but has recently operated from right-back. In our view, his versatility is a huge plus for any elite club.

The experienced ace would be an upgrade on Wataru Endo with his better ball playing ability, but the big question remains whether Liverpool would be willing to make an approach for him.

Kimmich is already 29 years of age. The Merseyside giants may not pay over the odds for him.

He is currently valued at €75 million by Transfermarkt and receives a weekly package of €375,000. We don’t believe the Reds will make a move unless he is available in the region of €40-45m.

Kimmich may also need to accept a salary reduction to move to Anfield this summer. The likes of Madrid and City could have an upper hand if the German is unwilling to accept a pay-cut.
