Manchester City fans have received some potentially exciting news about one of the club’s transfer targets for the upcoming summer market.

The news pertains to the club’s interest in Joshua Kimmich of Bayern Munich and Germany, as City continues to prepare a midfield shortlist for the upcoming transfer window.

With Kalvin Phillips unlikely to return from West Ham United after his loan spell, and Bernardo Silva uncertain about his future at Etihad, City officials may have to look to the transfer market.

Feasible options at a realistic price range for Manchester City are hard to come by in the current market. As such, the club may have to consider favorable opportunities to secure a deal.

Joshua Kimmich is likely to grab their attention due to his unresolved contract situation at Bayern Munich, especially considering recent developments about his interest in joining Manchester City.

According to Manchester City insider ‘Tolmie’s Hairdoo’ on X, Joshua Kimmich now “only wants to join” Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City this summer.

This information is further explained, stating that if Bayern Munich does not offer him decent new contractual terms and a clear plan on and off the field, then the versatile Germany international is ready to join Guardiola’s side.

Pep Guardiola and Joshua Kimmich have a history from their time together at Bayern Munich. Guardiola coached Kimmich in various roles, including full-back, central defense, and midfield.

Some within Etihad have likened Guardiola’s exceptional development of Kimmich to the ongoing coaching of Rico Lewis at Manchester City.

Lewis has transitioned from full-back and defensive midfield roles to now finding himself in the attacking midfield position after rising to the first team.

The potential addition of Joshua Kimmich to Manchester City’s squad would bring excitement and optimism as the club looks to strengthen its midfield for the upcoming season.

The unresolved contract situation at Bayern Munich and Kimmich’s reported interest in joining Manchester City could make this a notable transfer target to keep an eye on as the summer market approaches.
