Some Manchester City fans want the club to sign Joshua Kimmich after it was suggested the Citizens could make a move for the Germany international as a potential long-term replacement for Fernandinho.

Despite turning 36-years-old last week, Fernandinho has proven himself to still be a brilliant and vital player for City.

City fans were recently shocked by the news that Fernandinho had been placed on the club’s list of released players following the end of the Premier League season.

Telegraph recently reported that the Brazilian is set to stay at the Etihad, despite having received pre-contract offers from clubs in Europe and South America, as he feels he still has ‘more years at the top level’ in him.

However, it’s claimed that the Blues ‘remain in the market for a long-term replacement for him,’ despite spending £60million to sign Rodri from Atletico Madrid in 2019.

As per The Manchester Evening News, Wilfred Ndidi, Eduardo Camavinga and Joshua Kimmich have been pinpointed as potential replacements for the Brazilian.

The mention of £81m-valued Kimmich (Transfermarkt), in particular, has delighted the City supporters.

The news was shared on Twitter by City Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the fans, who took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on the speculation.
