Liverpool linked with surprise summer move for £52 million Bundesliga star
Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich
The 28-year-old German midfielder will be available this summer for a fee of about €60 million (£52 million), and the Reds are not the only English club interested in signing him, according to a report from the Spanish daily Marca. They will also have to contend with Premier League giants Arsenal.
According to rumors, Kimmich is dissatisfied with the German team and is seeking a new challenge. The question of whether Liverpool will spend a fortune on him is still open.
It goes without saying that Liverpool will need to add players to its midfield this summer.
On free transfers, they stand to lose players like Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and James Milner. Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, among other players, have not been at their best.
This summer, Jurgen Klopp has to add a number of midfielders, and Kimmich would be a great choice.
The 28-year-old has recently excelled for both club and country, and Klopp may find him to be a worthwhile addition. The 28-year-old will protect the back four as well as help anchor Liverpool’s midfield.
The prospect of playing in the Premier League and collaborating with a renowned manager like Jurgen Klopp may be enticing options for the German international.
In the upcoming months, it will be interesting to watch if Liverpool makes a specific offer for the Bayern Munich midfielder.
Although the asking price of €60 million is rather high, Kimmich has necessary skills and the know-how to transform Liverpool in the middle of the park.
