Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed that the German champions want to dip into the transfer market to strengthen their squad.

"We would like to expand our squad depth a bit. There will be many weeks with several games next seasons, so we need to have more players ready to play," Rummenigge told Handelsblatt.

However, due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Rummenigge isn't expecting any deals to hit the €100 million mark this summer.

"I can't imagine that anyone will be paying that much for a player in Germany or even Europe," the Bayern boss said.

"The transfer market will change. There's not much liquidity, so there is a lack of demand, but not of players looking for a transfer. That will readjust the prices."

According to reports, Bayern have reached an agreement to sign Tanguy Kouassi on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

The German champions have also been linked with a number of other players, including Manchester City's Leroy Sané.
