Bayern Munich star defender Joshua Kimmich does not see a potential arrival of Ashraf Hakimi as a threat for his place in the club, quite the contrary. Joshua Kimmich, a versatile Bayern Munich full-back, was asked at a press conference about the Bundesliga giant’s interest in Ashraf Hakimi, Borussia Dortmund player. The German international is a huge fan of the Moroccan.
This is what Kimmich said about Achraf during the Bayern training camp in Doha, Qatar: “He is a very dynamic player. He can play left, right and even a little bit further forward. It’s always important to have such players, it helps you to be more flexible in your choices”. The player even believes that “that’s what makes Dortmund strong”.
Kimmich, a 24 years old football player, speaks from experience. He himself has the ability to play in every position in defense, and even as a defensive midfielder for both club and country.
Marca, a Spanish media outlet close to Real Madrid, announced yesterday that Bayern is considering the possibility of signing Achraf Hakimi. The Moroccan’s loan deal with Dortmund comes to an end this summer. He is expected to return to his home club, Real Madrid.
