Bayern München coach Hansi Flick has admitted that he would like to have another wide player at his disposal for the 2020/21 season.
Asked about potential transfer targets ahead of Bayern's DFB-Pokal semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday, Flick responded:
"If you ask me about positions, I'd say wide players – full-backs or wingers – who can add a bit of pace to the team."
The German champions have been heavily linked with a summer move for Manchester City winger Leroy Sané, who would give Flick another option on the wing.
"At the moment, we have three wingers in our squad - Serge Gnabry, Ivan Perisic and Kingsley Coman - and maybe that's not quite enough over a whole season. We've talked about that, and [sporting director] Hasan [Salihamidzic] knows the situation."
As things stand, Ivan Perisic is due to return to Inter, when his loan spell is over at the end of the season.
