Bayern Munich have signed Croatia global Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan on loan until the end of the season, with an option to buy.
"Ivan will help us immediately with his many years of global experience", said Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
The 30-year-old will be moving to Bavaria on an initial loan move worth around €5m.
The Bavarian giants' hopes of signing Manchester City's Leroy Sane were scuppered last week following the news he will be out for six or seven months after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
The Croatia worldwide underwent medical tests on Monday morning in Munich with Bayern, who are desperately seeking reinforcement in the wide areas.
He said in July on the back of a 1-0 International Champions Cup defeat to Manchester United: "We're working with him, but his response isn't positive".
He also helped Croatia to the 2018 World Cup final, which they lost to France.
"Perisic can't play in the role that I want".
Niko Kovac asked for Perisic's signing to replace Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, who both departed Bayern Munich this summer. Yet several former Bayern players have insisted that Perisic would be more than just a plan B.
