thumbnail Hello,

The Bavarians are keen to further strengthen their squad this summer and have been linked with another Borussia Dortmund forward after already recruiting Robert Lewandowski

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer says that the reigning Bundesliga champions could make more summer signings amid reports that they are monitoring Borussia Dortmund attacker Marco Reus.

The Bavarians have already brought in Robert Lewandowski, Sebastian Rode and Juan Bernat this summer but coach Pep Guardiola is keen to add some more firepower to his attack and is rumoured to have earmarked 25-year-old Reus as the perfect signing.

Sammer stopped short of identifying any targets but admitted that the Bundesliga champions would continue to look at the market in order to avoid any risk of star players becoming tired after their World Cup exploits.

"The transfer window will remain open for a few more weeks," he told TZ. "We have to deal with this fact wisely. Maybe we won't do anything but perhaps we will make some more signings...

"We already have a certain amount of players at our availability at the moment but let's not forget that we did not win the Bundesliga title after the 2006 and 2010 World Cups."

Reus has a contract with Dortmund until the summer of 2017 but has a limited fee release clause believed to be at €35 million (£27.7m).

However, BVB will be desperate to hold on their star attacker after previously losing Mario Gotze and Lewandowski to their arch-rivals.

The German champions have also been linked with a move for Colombia international Juan Cuadrado, currently under contract with Fiorentina.
