City boss Pep Guardiola is blessed with right-backs after spending over £70million to secure the services of Kyle Walker and Danilo in the summer, but that is not stopping suggestions he wants Kimmich as well.
Guardiola knows the Germany international well from his time in charge of Bayern Munich and is keen to be reunited with him at the Etihad Stadium.
However, City will face strong competition from Barcelona who are also keen to strike deal despite the fact Nelson Semedo is starring for them in defence.
There is also another big stumbling block as reports claim Bayern have no intention of letting Kimmich move on either in January or at the end of the season.
It is claimed that both City and Barca could test the water with offers in the region of £44million.
