Bayern Munich have signed Ivan Perisic on a season-long loan from Inter Milan with an option to buy.
Perisic, a key part of the Croatia side that reached the final of the 2018 World Cup, will challenge Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman for a place on the wing following the departure of Arjen Robben, who has retired, and Franck Ribery.
The 30-year-old, who can also play up front or as an attacking midfielder, previously played for Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga between 2011 and 2015, and will now look to make his mark at the Allianz Arena.
“Ivan will instantly help us with his top-level experience,” said Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.
“He is skilled and is flexible up front. I am certain he will quickly integrate because he knows the Bundesliga and also our coach Niko Kovac.”
