Among other things, Eberl was asked about Christopher Nkunku and Konrad Laimer, who have been strongly linked with moves away from the club.
Nkunku has a reported €60 million release clause in his contract and is said to have agreed a move to Chelsea.
While Eberl did not want to confirm that, he seemed to hint at a departure for the French international.
"With 'Christo', I can't confirm anything yet. But there is a lot of interest and a lot of talk with us. Accordingly, something is looming," he said.
As for Laimer, who is said to be close to a move to Bayern, Eberl conceded:
"I know that the probability [of Laimer staying] is very, very, very low.
"But maybe there is an emotional factor. He hasn't made a decision yet, as I understand it," Eberl said about the midfielder, who is out of contract in the summer of 2023.
