The suggestion is that Flick, 58, has verbally agreed to take on Low’s role.
That’s despite reports Tottenham AND new Barcelona president Joan Laporta have also initiated contact with Flick.
And Catalan radio station RAC1 describe the German as the preferred candidate.
Flick told Bayern last month he wanted out at the end of the season, although they have gone on to again win the Bundesliga comfortably.
He has never hidden his desire to manage Germany one day, having been assistant boss from 2006-14.
And Sky claim it is “extremely unlikely” he would now reject the chance to boss his own country’s team.
The broadcaster also say Flick has held “concrete talks” with Gemany football chiefs – with an official announcement possible soon.
As for Tottenham, ex-RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick is said to have been contacted.
Lazio’s Simone Inzaghi remains the bookies’ favourite, though.
Next in the betting come Ajax chief Erik ten Hag, Brighton’s Graham Potter, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez and Leicester’s FA Cup-winning boss Brendan Rodgers.
