The contract of the Austrian national player Sabitzer with the Bundesliga club ends in 2022, although he does not want to extend his contract as things stand.
The German champions Bayern are the team most consistently associated with Sabitzer, although it is believed that an official application has not yet been made.
Reports from Germany say that Bayern are keen on Sabitzer, with PICTURE It even goes so far as to claim that negotiations between the two clubs are underway.
In fact, the new Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann trained the Austrian during his time at Leipzig and promoted the 27-year-old to captain.
