Joshua Kimmich has Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City on the shortlist of clubs he would consider joining if he left Bayern Munich, according to reports in Germany.

The 29-year-old has just a year left on his contract and Bayern could face the prospect of losing him on a free transfer next year if he does not commit to a new deal.

Kimmich is yet to hold talks with Bayern over a new contract and clubs across Europe are already positioning themselves if the versatile defender becomes available.

According to Sky Germany, the prospect of Kimmich reaching an agreement with Bayern is ‘currently very unlikely’ and the Bundesliga club are open to selling him this summer.

The report claims that as well as Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City, Kimmich would also consider moves to Barcelona and Real Madrid.

It’s also claimed that Barcelona are currently Kimmich’s ‘first point of contact’ if it becomes clear that he will leave Bayern this summer.

When asked about his future this week, Kimmich said: ‘The situation is absolutely clear.

‘I have a contract with Bayern until 2025, so it’s not mainly up to me to be active right now.

‘My focus is solely on the European Championship, and after that there will be a conversation.’

Speaking about Bayern’s decision to appoint Vincent Kompany as Thomas Tuchel’s replacement, Kimmich said: ‘Of course I know him from a distance as a player. I can’t judge him as a coach yet.

‘Of course, it’s important for my future, but first of all it’s important for me what the club thinks. It’s nice that we have one less thing to worry about.’
