Liverpool Can Secure Wataru Endo Upgrade with €75m Star Who’s Ready for Anfield Move

Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich is contemplating a potential move to Liverpool in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Having served as a linchpin for the Bavarian giants for over eight years, the Germany international is now eyeing fresh challenges as his current contract with the Bundesliga champions expires next season. Despite efforts, negotiations for a new long-term deal at Bayern have hit a standstill.

In light of this situation, Kimmich is exploring options for his future, with Liverpool emerging as one of his potential destinations. According to Florian Plettenberg, Kimmich has identified five European clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Barcelona, alongside Liverpool, where he could envision himself playing next season.

With Bayern Munich willing to entertain offers, Kimmich remains open to discussions with interested parties. It’s understood that several of the aforementioned clubs have already initiated contact with the versatile midfielder, indicating a keen interest in securing his services.

Kimmich has showcased his prowess as a midfielder over nearly a decade with Bayern, solidifying his status as a top-tier player.

Although primarily occupying the number six position under Thomas Tuchel, Kimmich has recently demonstrated his adaptability by slotting into the right-back role, a trait highly valued by elite clubs.

Comparatively, Kimmich’s superior ball-playing skills could make him an desirable upgrade to Wataru Endo. However, whether Liverpool would pursue him remains uncertain.

At 29 years old, Kimmich’s age may deter Liverpool from pursuing him, considering the potential reluctance to meet his €75 million valuation and €375,000 weekly wage.

A plausible scenario for Liverpool’s interest in Kimmich would involve his availability at a reduced price range, ideally between €40-45 million, coupled with a willingness to accept a lower salary, which may be necessary for a move to Anfield.

However, if Kimmich is unwilling to compromise on his salary demands, clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester City could emerge as frontrunners for his signature.
