Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is on the managerial shortlist at five-time European champions Bayern Munich according to the latest media reports emanating from Germany.
Bayern Munich are looking for a permanent manager and are expected to make an appointment before the next game scheduled to take place after the international break.
According to the Daily Star, Liverpool legend Xabi Alonso is on the managerial shortlist alongside the likes of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) manager Thomas Tuchel and ex-Juventus and AC Milan boss Maximiliano Allegri.
Bayern Munich have been without a permanent manager since Niko Kovac was shown the way out at the end of last month on the bag of the big loss to Europa League campaigners Eintracht Frankfurt.

The German champions were beaten 5-1 by their hosts with ten men after Jerome Boateng was given his marching orders.
Niko Kovac spent just more than one season at Bayern Munich following his appointment last summer.
In his first year, the ex-Eintracht Frankfurt boss led Bayern Munich to the double.
He won the league title for the seventh straight season as well as the German Cup via the 3-0 victory over RB Leipzig in the final.
Xabi Alonso was part of the Liverpool squad that won the 2005 Champions League title.
