Bayern Munich board have already announced Flick’s departure in the summer, and have also confirmed his replacement in Julian Nageslmann.
Now the DFB reports they are in a negotiation with Flick about taking over from Joachim Low after the summer European Championships.
Joachim Low has been in charge of the German national side for more than 15 years, guiding the team to secure the 2014 World Cup.
“It is well known that Hansi Flick is held in high esteem by the DFB. We can confirm that, against this background, we will now hold talks with him and those responsible at FC Bayern,” the DFB told SID.
“We are currently not going to comment on the further procedure, which we will initially coordinate internally with all parties involved with all due care and calm.”
