Newcastle United are one of the clubs to be linked with the out of favour defender in the new year.
BAYERN PREPARE LENO BID
Bayern Munich have made Bayer Leverkusen star Bernd Leno their principal target for the January transfer window, claims Bild .
The Germany international reportedly is seen as the perfect replacement for Manuel Neuer as Die Roten's No. 1 recovers from a foot injury.

COUTINHO PREPARED TO SEE OUT SEASON
Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho is willing to wait until the end of the season to join Barcelona, the Daily Mirror reports.
The Brazil international is eager to move to Camp Nou to play alongside Lionel Messi, but has come to a compromise at Anfield which will see him turn down the chance to move in January if the transfer is agreed with Barcelona for a summer transfer.
