Messi thinks Kimmich and Griezmann would be good additions to Barcelona’s squad

It’s easy to see why Messi wants Barca to move for both Griezmann and Kimmich, as both are considered as some of the best in the world in their respective positions.

Griezmann has proven to be one of the best forwards in the world since he moved to Los Rojiblancos from Real Sociedad a few years back.

Whilst Kimmich, especially this season, has really come into his own, with the German international managing to bag a total of six goals and 17 assists for Bayern Munich this season.

If Barca do listen to Messi and move for Griezmann and Kimmich, it’ll be interesting to see just how successful the club are at securing deals for the duo.
