Serge Gnabry is available for selection for Bayern for this weekend's Bundesliga clash against Koln.

The German had been in a period of isolation after initially testing positive for coronavirus.

However, he has taken a series of tests over consecutive days which have all came back negative, while he also tested negative for the antibody test.

European Golden Shoe 2020/21: Lewandowski tearing it up

He made his return off the bench for Bayern in the 2-1 away victory over Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday, and is in line to start in the Bundesliga, potentially at the expense of Kingsley Coman.

Leroy Sane didn't make it off the bench in Russia, so will be nice and rested to play on Saturday, too.

Corentin Tolisso is serving the second of a two-games domestic suspension and will miss out, which will likely mean Thomas Muller coming inside to a more central area behind Robert Lewandowski.

Alphonso Davies might not play again until December after suffering an ankle ligament injury against Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend. Lucas Hernandez will probably play left-back every game until the Canadian returns.
