Barcelona will reportedly reignite their interest in Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich in the summer transfer window.

The Catalans were linked with a move for Kimmich last summer, which did not go down well with Bayern, and are apparently set to try again at the end of the season.

Diario AS are now reporting that Kimmich will be a “priority objective” when it comes to reinforcing the squad.

The report even claims Xavi has already had several chats with Kimmich and is pretty confident the Germany international would be willing to make the move.

Kimmich has a contract with the Bavarian giants until 2025, meaning the club have a big decision to make on him next summer before he enters the last 12 months of his deal.

AS also reckon that Barca are set for talks with agents of players in the Bundesliga and, even if Kimmich doesn’t come, could still do some summer shopping in Germany.
