Arsenal fans, rejoice! Joshua Kimmich's Bayern Munich exit could open the door for a Premier League arrival, with the Gunners emerging as a potential destination. The 29-year-old German midfielder, currently impressing at Euro 2024, has just one year left on his Bayern contract. Reports suggest the Bavarians are open to selling Kimmich, who seems unlikely to extend his stay.

Kimmich's arrival could be the answer to Arsenal's prayers, particularly as a replacement for Thomas Partey. Partey, a vital cog in the Gunners' midfield, has been linked with a move away. Kimmich mirrors Partey's skillset perfectly. Both offer a strong defensive presence in midfield, but Kimmich also possesses exceptional distribution and attacking prowess. This versatility could elevate Arsenal's midfield to new heights.

The coming weeks will be crucial. A bidding war for this coveted German star seems inevitable. With Kimmich's contract situation and Arsenal's need for a midfield leader, the Emirates could be his next destination.
