Bengaluru, September 7: Premier League trio Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly interested in a stunning move for Bayern Munich superstar Thomas Muller.

The German forward is said to be unsettled at Bayern Munich and has a difficult relationship with Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti and could be on his way out sooner rather than later as per reports.

The 27-year-old was surprisingly benched for the second Bundesliga game of the season against Werder Bremen, despite leading the side on the opening day.

According to reports from 'SportsBild', the three Premier League clubs have all contacted Bayern Munich about Muller’s availability.

Though Chelsea have signed Alvaro Morata, Antonio Conte is still looking for options up front to bolster his attack. Diego Costa is still at the club but it will be surprising to see him on the pitch after the feud that took place this summer.

Arsenal are resigned to losing Alexis Sanchez next summer for free and Muller could prove to be a huge signing for them to replace the Chilean.

On the other hand, we are to see how Liverpool deals with the Coutinho situation and in the system Klopp believes in, Muller would be a world-class addition with his all-round game.

Muller, an academy graduate of Bayern, has been at the club throughout his career but has fallen down the pecking order since the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti while his form has also taken a dip.

Muller scored just five league goals last season which is poor from a payer of his standards and faces a battle to keep his place in the side when James Rodriguez returns from injury.

Liverpool were linked with a £57million move for Muller in the summer. Jurgen Klopp is reported to be an admirer of the player, yet Bayern’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisted that Muller was not for sale.
