Liverpool, Juventus, Barcelona and United are four potential new destinations for Joshua Kimmich Transfers

In last summer’s transfer window, Liverpool worked to revamp their midfield, adding Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch to the squad, all of whom have performed well, to a greater or lesser extent.

Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott have also progressed well, while Stefan Bajcetic is set for a resurgent season after being plagued by injury last season. Despite the departure of Thiago Alcantara, the team has a well-stocked midfield squad.

Nevertheless, rumours of acquiring a new defensive midfielder persist.

German midfielder Joshua Kimmich, whose contract extension talks with Bayern Munich have been stalled, is one such player who, according to Ben Jacobs (sports journalist), may be in contention with Juventus, Barcelona and Manchester United.

“I think we have to keep an eye on Liverpool, Juventus, possibly Barcelona, although there’s obviously financial considerations, and even Manchester United, who all could be in the race for Kimmich and are all assessing whether there’s value at that number before making any kind of meaningful approach.”

“Kimmich’s future will also be intertwined to some extent with Joao Palhinha. Should he come in as a new defensive midfielder and that deal get done with Fulham, it might end up costing close to £60m, and almost certainly €60m at the lower end.”

“So you know, ranging between £50m if maybe Bayern eventually get their way, and £60m if Fulham get their price and if Palhinha joins, then the expectation is it will further call into question Kimmich’s future.”

A clever player who can operate not only at the bottom of midfield but also as a right-back, he has scored 42 goals and assisted 104 in 390 games for Bayern and has proven himself not only in the domestic league but also in the Champions League and other European competitions.

The midfielder could be a valuable team member for any club, but where will the player, who is under contract until June 2025, move to…?
