Liverpool left back target Fabio Coentrao is back on the radar of Bayern Munich, according to reports.
The Portuguese international has been on the radar of a number of clubs across Europe, with Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish thought to be one of those monitoring the player's progress at Benfica.
However, Goal.com claims in an exclusive that Munich will negotiate a deal to bring Jupp Heynckes in as manager in the coming days, and will then follow that up with a contract offer for Coentrao.
Valued in the region of €30 million by his club, A Bola claims the Bundesliga side made a £17.3 million move for the player in the summer, and will follow up their interest a year later.
Liverpool are known to be in the market for a left back, with a string of players in the position linked with a move to Anfield.
Taye Taiwo, Jose Enrique and Oscar Wendt are three defenders linked with a switch as recently as the last fortnight, with a player set to replace the out-of-favour Paul Konchesky at Liverpool. The former Fulham star is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest, and tipped to leave the club permanently in the summer.
Dalglish has hinted at a number of changes in a variety of positions come the end of the season, with recently promoted Damien Comolli echoing the Liverpool manager's sentiments. The Reds' director of football has been spotted on numerous scouting trips this season, and is thought to be a fan of Coentrao.
Competition will clearly be fierce for the player's signature, although the most recent reports claim Chelsea and Real Madrid have withdrawn their interest, leaving a potential battle between Munich and Liverpool for the signature.
