Bayern Munich has been putting a lot of effort into improving their attack this summer. They are pursuing the signing of Harry Kane. If Bayern ends up signing the English forward, they will end up completing one of the biggest deals of the summer.

Along with improving the attack, adding fresh faces to the midfield is also on the agenda for Bayern. They have already signed Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig on a free transfer. Die Roten and Thomas Tuchel also want to add number six to the squad. West Ham’s Declan Rice was the top target for this position, but he ended up joining Arsenal. An alternative target is likely to be pursued later in the summer.

The arrival of a new defensive midfielder will see Joshua Kimmich move into a more attacking role in the center of the park. The German international has been a mainstay in Bayern’s team for the past few seasons. He is going to play a big role in Die Roten’s success next season, possibly in a position that will allow him to show his creativity in the final third.

Bayern considers Joshua Kimmich in their long-term plans. While talking to the media in Japan on Tuesday, Kimmich also insisted that he is staying in Bavaria for next season. Barcelona was heavily linked with Kimmich at the end of the last season. Bayern was frustrated with Barcelona publicly declaring interest in signing Kimmich. The Bavarian club is hoping to secure the long-term future of Kimmich sooner than later.

According to TZ, Bayern is looking to open contract talks with Joshua Kimmich in autumn. The German midfielder’s current deal expires in 2025. The next deal at Bayern will make sure that Kimmich will spend the rest of the peak of his career in Bavaria.

The report from TZ also insists that experiencing a new adventure in the late 20s is also an attractive option for Kimmich. The German midfielder may make a decision on his long-term future at Bayern after Euros 2024. The Bavarian club will hope that Kimmich continues to play at Allianz Arena in the long run.

Kimmich’s future in Munich will also depend on how Bayern performs on the pitch. The German midfielder reportedly does have concerns about the sporting development at Bayern after a poor last season. If Rekordmeister gets things right next season on and off the pitch, Kimmich may end up spending the rest of his career at the club.

In an ideal scenario, Bayern would like to agree terms for a new deal with Joshua Kimmich before the end of next season. They will be forced to listen to offers for him if he refuses to sign a new deal. Losing a quality midfielder like Kimmich on a free transfer is a big financial blow. For now, the Bavarian faithful should be relieved that Kimmich will be playing at Allianz Arena next season.
