Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller has opened the door to a host of clubs around Europe after revealing his unhappiness at a lack of playing time.

Muller, who burst onto the world scene by winning the best young player award at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, has spent his whole career at Bayern but has grown increasingly dissatisfied in recent months after spending more and more time on the club's bench.

While the 22-year-old Germany international is adamant he would prefer to remain at his boyhood club, he has conceded his current situation has made him consider his options this summer.

Italian side Inter Milan have been strongly linked with the player, although news of his availability could also draw the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea into the bidding.

"Everybody knows that not only do I wear the Bayern Munich emblem on my shirt, but Bayern will always be my club," said Muller.

"I am therefore not forced to think about leaving. But the situation at the moment does not particularly make me say that I would not listen to offers."

Muller remains an integral part of the German national team, however - playing a part in all 10 of the qualification for Euro 2012. And it is winning the tournament - after coming so close four years ago - that is his priority for now.

"I am here to play at the European Championships and that is the one and only thing I am concentrating on," he added.

Muller's current contract at the Allianz Arena is due to expire in the summer of 2015.
