Why Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich would be perfect for Arsenal

Arsenal are looking to further bolster their squad this summer in a bid to mount a stronger title challenge next season after finishing as runners-up behind Manchester City in the last two seasons, and they have been handed a huge transfer boost if the latest reports coming from Germany are to be believed.

Bayern Munich right-back Joshua Kimmich has been on the radar of the Gunners for a while, and the Bundesliga club are open to selling him this summer, according to Sky Sports Germany.

The Germany international is in the last 12 months of his contract and is unwilling to sign an extension, and Bayern prefer to sell him now as opposed to losing him for free next summer.

However, Arsenal are not the only one in the race for Kimmich, with Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Manchester City and Liverpool also interested in recruiting the services of the 29-year-old.

As a result, pipping fierce competition to their man will be huge for the North Londoners, and the full-back will be perfect for them given his huge quality.

With eight Bundesliga titles, six German Super Cups, three German Cups and one Champions League title to his name, Kimmich will be bringing a much-needed winning mentality Arsenal could do with in their dressing room to the table.

He also has 11 seasons under his belt, and the Gunners need such an experienced player within their ranks if they are to move to the next level.

The German can also play as a defensive midfielder excellently well, and it is a position Arsenal want to strengthen given the uncertainty surrounding the future of the injury-prone Thomas Partey.

Landing Kimmich could be a huge game changer for the Gunners as they look to finally go one better, and they should not hesitate to pull out all the stops in his pursuit.
