Ivan Perisic targeted Champions League glory with Bayern Munich this morning after completing a loan move from Inter.

"Ivan will help us immediately with his long-term experience at the worldwide top level".

The Inter Milan star was spotted in Munich for a medical ahead of his move, Bild report, and is completing the formalities before a transfer that was reported to have been for a €5M loan and €20M buy option.

Bayern were eager to sign the Croatian after their deal to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City fell apart after his injury.

Perisic is a familiar name in Germany, having won the Bundesliga title with Borussia Dortmund and the German Cup with Wolfsburg earlier in his career.

He's also had a successful worldwide career with Croatia, reaching the World Cup final a year ago in Russian Federation.

Perisic's current contract at Inter runs until 2022, but he was reportedly set to play less of a role under new coach Antonio Conte.

Niko Kovac asked for Perisic's signing to replace Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, who both departed Bayern Munich this summer.

While the Nerazzurri have no position for Perisic within their ranks, Bundesliga champions Bayern are happy to open their doors.

Bayern launch their Bundesliga season at home to Hertha Berlin on Friday.
