The 31-year-old had a difficult campaign at Ipswich after reaching the World Cup with Poland last summer.
After initially starting the season as Ipswich’s number one, he was soon dropped by former manager Paul Hurst for the clash with rivals Norwich City, finding out only an hour before the game.
Bialkowski returned to regular first-team action under Paul Lambert, but he has been powerless to prevent the Tractor Boys’ relegation to League One despite improvements under the former Norwich boss.
At 31, the Poland international still has a few more years ahead of him at potentially a higher level and with a contract until 2021, Ipswich are in a position to hold out for a decent figure.
The East Anglian Daily Times claims Birmingham City failed with a £3 million bid for him last summer. It could take a similar fee to prize him away from Portman Road this time around.
The Suffolk club’s other goalkeeper Dean Gerken is out of contract this summer. Should both shot-stoppers depart the club, Paul Lambert will be tasked with signing at least two more goalkeepers as replacements.
