Barcelona have reportedly expressed an interest in making a summer move for Bayern Munich defender Joshua Kimmich.
The 24-year-old joined the Bavarians from VfB Stuttgart in 2015 and has since gone on to make 200 appearances for the Bundesliga champions in all competitions.
He has also played in midfield on a number of occasions this term, scoring one goal and providing five assists in 18 outings across all competitions.
Kimmich’s contract at the Allianz Arena is valid until the summer of 2023, but according to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are keen to bring the Germany international to Camp Nou.
The report suggests that the Barca sporting director Eric Abidal has identified Kimmich as a potential signing to strengthen the squad in next summer’s transfer window.
The Spanish champions are also allegedly in the market for a new forward and centre-back.
