Bayern Munich manager Kovac talks up moves for Sane & Dembele

Niko Kovac says Manchester City winger Leroy Sane would improve his Bayern Munich team.

Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealed on Monday that the club were still hopeful of signing the former Schalke man.

And now Kovac has given his endorsement for the move.

He said: "He can definitely help us. Period. Exclamation mark. He has showed that in the national team and at City."

On Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, the Croatian added: "He is a very good player, too.We are focusing on the attacking area because we lost two players [Robben and Ribery] that we need to replace.

"In the 'six position', we have [Joshua] Kimmich who can play there and Thiago [Alcantara] who did a great job. We have got options. I know that there will be more to come.

"The ambitions for this season are very high. We want to defend our double and perform much better in Europe. We want to improve what was good and what was bad."
