The Swiss ace was heavily linked with a switch away from the Bundesliga champions over the summer, but the Bavarians held firm to keep the 23-year-old.
Initially Shaqiri appeared happy to stay and continue his battle for first-team football, but with his playing time having remained limited, he’s now ready to leave in a bid to get his career back on track.
Liverpool and United – who both made moves during the last window – are expected to return for the stocky wide-man, but the likes of Spurs and Juventus are also monitoring the situation.
Reports indicate that Bayern are willing to offload their man for the right price – rumoured to be near £20m – with manager Pep Guardiola having deemed him to not be a key player.
The English sides interested have been further boosted by claims from Schalke big-shot Horst Heldt that his side are not watching Shaqiri.
The World Cup star shone for Basel before joining Bayern in 2012.
