Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich reportedly wants a move to the Premier League this summer, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool interested in the German.

Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich has reportedly set his heart on a move to the Premier League this summer, with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City keen.

The 29-year-old has been a stalwart for the Bavarian giants since joining the club in 2015, featuring in 375 matches across all competitions and netting 41 goals.

Kimmich has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell at the Allianz Arena so far, winning eight-straight Bundesliga titles and a Champions League in 2019-20.

This campaign has seen the German utilised at both right-back and in the middle of the park by Thomas Tuchel, making 18 league appearances for the league holders.

According to HITC, Kimmich is keen on a switch from Germany to the Premier League ahead of the 2024-25 campaign in order to end his nine-year stay at Bayern Munich.

The report claims that local rivals Manchester United and Manchester City are both interested in signing the 82-time international, who will be hoping to help Germany to glory at a home European Championships in the summer.

Pep Guardiola's side are targeting reinforcements in their engine room at the conclusion of the campaign, with Mateo Kovacic reportedly set for a move to the Saudi Pro League.

Further space in the engine room for Kimmich could also be made by the potential departure of Kalvin Phillips, who is currently out on loan at West Ham United.

As well as the two Manchester powerhouses, it is understood that Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool are keen on securing the signature of the 29-year-old.

Although Kimmich would not be able to link up with the former Borussia Dortmund boss and compatriot in the 2024-25 term, Anfield could still remain an attractive proposition for the Munich man.

On top of the Reds, it is also believed that Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are both admirers of the ex-RB Leipzig midfielder and could join the hotly-contested race for his services in the summer.

Before potentially switching Bavaria for the Premier League next season, Kimmich will be looking to secure a ninth-straight Bundesliga crown at the Allianz Arena.

However, following the 2-2 draw at Freiburg on Friday night, Tuchel's side could be 10 points behind league leaders Bayer Leverkusen by the end of the weekend.
