Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke says he believes Philippe Coutinho's arrival at Bayern München on loan from FC Barcelona is a positive thing for the Bundesliga.

"The fact is that it's good for the Bundesliga when a name like that comes. He's not a typical winger like Leroy Sané, but he's an exceptional player, of course. It was always clear to me that Bayern would sign one or two extraordinary players," Watzke told Sky.

Bayern have also brought in Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez, Jann-Fiete Arp, Ivan Perisic (loan) and Michael Cuisance this summer.
