To fend off interest from his suitors, Hoffenheim are looking to extend Beier's contract, which currently runs until 2025 and includes a release clause of €20 million, according to Kicker.
According to the German football magazine, Die Kraichgauer want to reward him with a higher salary and adjust the "transfer modalities" as well as "exit scenarios".
Beier, a two-time German U-21 international, is a product of Hoffenheim's own youth academy.
He spent the last two seasons on loan at Hannover 96, where he scored 15 goals and added seven assists in 68 appearances.
