Arsenal eyeing Bayern star

When Arsenal face Bayern Munich in the Champions League next week, not only will they be wanting to get one over their German rivals.

It will also offer the chance for Mikel Arteta to watch German international Joshua Kimmich whose contractual situation with the Bundesliga club remains uncertain.

The 29 year old, who can play either as a full-back or defensive midfielder has one year left on his current deal, and talks about an extension have broken down.

His potential availability has alerted a host of clubs across Europe who might be interested in signing him, including both Manchester clubs and Liverpool.

However, his versatility makes him an ideal Arteta signing, and they are one of the favourites to snare his services should he decide to end his nine year association with Bayern, who may be set for an extensive summer rebuild in any case, and they could look to refresh their squad by bringing in younger talent.
