The Kaiser told a Bavarian television station "We are interested in signing the player."
Peruvian international Pizarro is being tracked by a number of clubs in Europe with Barcelona and Internazionale all keen for his signature.
Beckenbauer admitted that Pizarro may prefer to leave Germany, claiming: "As a South American with an Italian passport it is logical that a move to Spain or Italy would be a more attractive proposition."
If the 22-year-old striker chooses to continue his career in Germany, Bayern Munich will face a battle with arch rivals Borussia Dortmund to secure the services of the Bremen hit-man.
Both clubs will be looking to add £7 million rated Pizarro to their squad as they look towards next season's Champions league.
