Bayern Munich progressed to the quarterfinal of the UEFA Champions League last night as they won in fine fashion against Lazio. Goals from Harry Kane and Thomas Muller sealed the win on the night and more importantly, secured Bayern's place in the next round of the competition.

So, spirits are high but nobody can deny the underlying issues at the club currently. They are ten points behind Bundesliga rivals Bayer Leverkusen and it does not look like this will change anytime soon, with the league-leaders in flawless form. Furthermore, there are some unhappy players in the dressing room, most notably Joshua Kimmich.

The Bayern Munich legend Joshua Kimmich is linked with a move away from the Bavarian side. It is thought that his relationship with Thomas Tuchel has broken down. That said, Premier League clubs are interested in capitalising on this by bringing Kimmich to the English top flight.

According to a report by Caught Offside, Manchester City look like the most likely destination for Joshua Kimmich at this stage, since there remains to be anything concrete from Liverpool's camp.

Citing Ben Jacobs, the report states: “Kimmich is open to moving to the Premier League. Manchester City are exploring a move for him and believe he could gel well with Rodri. Liverpool have also been linked but there’s nothing advanced there to date. Barcelona are another club long-linked with Kimmich."

Interestingly, the report also states the fact that Bayern Munich would like to keep him, understandably. However, their position is weakened since Kimmich runs out of contract in the summer of 2025. If they cannot propose a respectable offer to extend his current stay between now and the end of the season, then Bayern may have no choice but to sell Kimmich in the summer transfer window.
