The former Germany international has come out in support of the Bavarian giant's transfer targets, saying that it is much better to target younger players
Oliver Bierhoff has praised Bayern Munich for their new approach in the transfer market, while looking forward to the possible arrival of Javi Martinez at the club.

The Germany team manager, a position created when Jurgen Klinsmann coached the national side, has explained that he approves of the Bavarians' signings.

"I like it how Bayern Munich are no longer chasing 30-year-olds who are no longer needed by their clubs, but, instead are going for players who have bright futures," he was quoted saying by TZ-online.

The former AC Milan striker went on to laud Athletic Bilbao star Javi Martinez who fits into this category and who is reportedly nearing a switch to the Bavarian giants.

"You hear only good things about him [Martinez]. I hope the deal works out," he concluded.

It was claimed earlier this week that the transfer of Martinez to Bayern Munich was nearing completion, however it has been reported that Martinez is now in Munich, but without the permission of the Spanish club.
