Arsenal could sign ‘Philipp Lahm 2.0’ as Bayern Munich are ready to sell the midfielder this summer for around £25m

With Sky Germany’s statement, the opportunity for Arsenal to recruit Joshua Kimmich is growing.

According to Football London, Arsenal could have the perfect opportunity to sign Joshua Kimmich with Bayern Munich ready to sell the midfielder this summer.

Kimmich, 29, has been an indispensable member of Bayern for the past 9 years following a £6 million transfer from RB Leipzig. He made 390 appearances during his time at the Allianz Arena, winning 20 titles, including eight Bundesliga titles .


But Kimmich, who has one year left on his contract, could leave Bayern during the summer transfer window. Sky Germany reports that Bayern are considering selling the German international, as they prepare for a squad overhaul under new coach Vincent Kompany.
