Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso is a wanted man and two European heavyweights, Bayern Munich and Liverpool are on the trail of the former Spain international.

Alonso played for Liverpool and won the UEFA Champions League with the Reds in the 2004/2005 season but the President of Bayern Munich Uli Hoenes has revealed that there is a scramble for the services of Alonso.

Bayern are almost certain to lose the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen with eight games left to play in the Bundesliga this season.

“Clubs like Liverpool, Real Madrid, Leverkusen and FC Bayern are working on it,” Hoeness told Ran Sport.

“He’s proven that he can be a coach for the big time. There are hardly any coaches who come into question who are currently free, who don’t have a job or who are on sabbatical.

“It’s not so easy to tell them that FC Bayern is the measure of all things.”

Thomas Tuchel will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season, while Jurgen Klopp announced his decision to step down at Liverpool in January.

Alonso may also attract the interest of other clubs aside Liverpool and Bayer Leverkusen with Barcelona, Man United and Chelsea other clubs that could be on the lookout for coaches ahead of the summer.

The former midfielder’s contract at Leverkusen runs until 2026.
