According to reports from L’Équipe, Bayern Munich's discussions with Paris Saint-Germain over Nordi Mukiele have prompted the French club to inquire about the availability of Joshua Kimmich.
Bayern has reportedly proposed a loan deal for Mukiele, featuring a purchase option valuing the right-back at €25 million. However, PSG is hesitant to part ways with Mukiele without securing a suitable replacement, especially with Achraf Hakimi's prolonged absence due to the Africa Cup of Nations.
Recognizing Kimmich's versatility in midfield and his adaptability to the right-back position, PSG is keen on incorporating him into the deal. They view him not only as a substantial midfield reinforcement but also as a temporary cover in Hakimi's absence.
While Kimmich's stance on a potential move to PSG remains unclear, earlier remarks hint at his desire to play abroad before concluding his career. This has sparked speculation in the Spanish media about Real Madrid considering a move for him in the upcoming summer.
However, L’Équipe suggests that PSG's attempt to lure Kimmich to Paris during this window might face significant hurdles. It remains uncertain how receptive Bayern would be to losing one of their pivotal midfielders midway through the season. The situation presents a complex scenario for PSG as they seek to strengthen their squad while respecting the dynamics and challenges of a midseason transfer window.
