While Newcastle are eager to secure Kimmich’s services this month, the player appears hesitant to make a midseason move. Currently under contract with Bayern Munich until 2025, discussions regarding a contract extension have not taken place. This leaves the possibility of a summer transfer open, providing a potential window for Newcastle to land the defensive midfielder.
