The 38-year-old is under contract at the Bundesliga outfit until June 2015 but club directors are reportedly eager to extend his deal by a further two years.
The extension would be a reward as Weinzierl, who joined Augsburg in the summer of 2012 from lower league outfit SSV Jahn Regensburg, has led the club to a current ninth position in the top flight table.
In comments reported by kicker-Sportmagazin, Weinzierl is quoted as saying: "I am under contract with FC Augsburg.
"I am able to confirm I am in touch with the authorities (of the club) day-in day-out."
