Bayern Munich could be on the verge of signing Switzerland star Xherdan Shaqiri amid reports the Basel forward is to undergo a medical with the German giants.
Bayern manager Jupp Heynckes was on Monday tight-lipped over the club's interest, despite suggestions they want the 20-year-old after missing out on Borussia Monchengladbach's Marco Reus.
But German newspaper Bild was on Tuesday reporting £7.5million-rated Shaqiri is in Germany in order to undergo physical tests before signing a four-year contract.
Heynckes had told Suddeutsche Zeitung: "I have watched Basel play. It is clear that some players stand out."
Bayern media director Markus Horwick had also refused to give anything away with regards to Shaqiri, who has in the past been linked with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.
He said earlier in the week: "If there was something to say, we would say it."
