PHILIPP MAX is being hotly pursued by an array of Premier League clubs after impressive displays in the Bundesliga this season.
According to MailOnline, Manchester United, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton are all tracking the defender’s movements.
Marauding full-backs are in high demand in the Premier League at the moment, given Kyle Walker’s £50m move to Manchester City last summer.
Max certainly fulfils that criteria, having picked up a goal and seven assists so far in German’s top tier this season.
The German signed a new deal just this year which aims to keep him at the Augsburg Arena until 2022, which will only drive up his asking price.
Manchester United have fielded four players at left-back this season; Matteo Darmian, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind – clearly an area that needs improvement.
Augsburg have made the best start to a Bundesliga season in their history, in eighth place with 22 points from their opening 14 matches.
Max has contributed to eight of their 21 goals scored – becoming an integral part of their attack – and would be an asset to the teams chasing him.
Tottenham will be desperate to fill their full-back slot with uncertainty over Danny Rose’s place in the team following a bust-up earlier in the season.
Manchester City are also in need of cover, without Benjamin Mendy who suffered an ACL injury until April next year.
