Everton's Netherlands international defender Johnny Heitinga has welcomed talk of interest in him from Bayern Munich.
The 27-year-old, who can play in defence or midfield, admits that there is no concrete offer on the table as yet, but would relish the chance of playing in the Champions League.
He told Voetbal International:"It's hard for me to say how serious the reported interest is at the moment. I know that Bayern haven't approached Everton yet and they haven't contacted me either.
"I have to admit that I feel flattered that I'm being linked with a big club such as Bayern Munich though. I'd definitely be interested in joining them.
"They play Champions League football and I'm still eligible to play in the competition, since we don't play European football with Everton.
"Every footballer wants to reach the top and I'm already 27 years old, so this could be the right moment. You never know what will happen, especially in the world of football."
