Kai Havertz would suit Bayern Munich as a potential signing, according to Joshua Kimmich.

Havertz made his full Germany debut in a friendly against Russia on Thursday, setting up Serge Gnabry's goal in a 3-0 win for Joachim Low's side.

The Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder has been linked with a move to Bayern, which is thought to be keen to freshen up its side, with Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery approaching retirement. And Bayern defender Kimmich feels 19-year-old Havertz would be a solid addition for the Bundesliga champions.

"I cannot buy him, but Kai Havertz is a player who would suit us well," Kimmich told reporters.

Havertz's performance also caught the eye of Germany coach Low.

"He impressed me," said Low. "He is very secure on the ball and has good positioning going forward. When he gets the ball, he always tries to bring the ball forward. You can see that in training as well."
