AS Roma are keeping a keen eye on the situation at Bayern Munich following striker Lukas Podolski's comments that he wants to quit the Bundesliga.

Roma had previously made a move for the 23-year-old in the off-season. However Podolski, who has not enjoyed regular playing action under Jurgen Klinsmann, is demanding a move in the January transfer market.

Podolski told German daily Bild: "I've told club management that I want to leave this winter."

Bayern are reportedly valuing Podolski, who is contracted to 2010, at 10 million euros.
