Rober Lewandowski has been talking up Joshua Kimmich amid rumors that Xavi would love to have the Bayern star at Barcelona next season.

Kimmich has played down talk of a move away from the Bavarian giants, but Lewandowski has made it clear he’d love to play alongside the 28-year-old once again.

“Everyone knows the qualities of Jo Kimmich,” he said.

“A player like that is a wish for every coach, it’s no secret. Barcelona are always looking for the best options. But I don’t want to say any more now, because I want to go on vacation in peace!”

Lewandowski came up against Germany and Kimmich on Friday night while on international duty with Poland.

Poland ran out 1-0 winners in the game in Warsaw. Jakub Kiwior’s header secured the victory for the hosts and a first win over the Germans for Poland in 90 years.
