According to a report from Sport1’s Florian Plettenberg (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia below), Alexander Nübel is “100%” leaving Bayern Munich.
As of now, AS Monaco and Lille are leading the pack to bring in Nübel, but there has been no final decision on where the 24-year-old might land for next season:

Sport Bild also acknowledged that Lille and Monaco, but also said that Lille might not be as attractive of an option to Bayern Munich. The reason? Lille is facing some financial issues and might not want to pay a loan fee to Bayern Munich.
Given Lille’s financial issues, the club would also not want to take on Nübel’s salary, which could cause Bayern Munich to look elsewhere.
As for who would replace Nübel, Arminia Bielefeld goalkeeper Stefan Ortega remains the leader in the clubhouse, while free agent Sven Ulreich could also be a good option for the Bavarians.
