Max has been priced at €20 million by Augsburg who are reportedly growing increasingly open to sending the left-back out on loan as no club have been wanting to match their price tag yet.
Kicker claims that Atalanta are 'working intensely' on bringing Max to Italy while Schalke are considering stepping up their interest in the 25-year-old whose contract with Augsburg runs until 2022.
Last season, Max made 34 appearances for Augsburg with four goals and seven assists to his name.
