Transfer Talk: Man City and Liverpool lock horns in battle for Kimmich

Liverpool and Manchester City are the frontrunners in the race to sign Joshua Kimmich.

The versatile Bayern Munich star, 28, has 18 months to run on his current contract in Bavaria and has yet to agree a new deal.

That would open the door for a free exit in the summer of 2025, so Bayern are open to cashing in on the Germany international at the end of this season, according to BILD.

Premier League title rivals City and Liverpool are both closely monitoring the midfielder’s situation at the Bundesliga champions, who he joined in 2015 from RB Leipzig.

It is suggested that Anfield chiefs may have the edge over the Citizens, due to Reds sporting director Jorg Schmadtke’s connections with the Bundesliga.

Klopp has undergone a midfield rebuild in the last six months and feels Kimmich’s experience would be welcome following the losses of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho last summer.
