Bayern Munich has signed France U21 international striker Kingsley Coman from Juventus on a two-year loan deal.

Coman, who made a brief substitute appearance in last season's Champions League final defeat to Barcelona, has played at Juventus since 2014 after joining from Paris St Germain.

"Kingsley Coman is one of the biggest talents in European football," Bayern sports director Matthias Sammer said.

"So we are delighted we have been able to sign him for Bayern. Kingsley is quick, technically skilled and an attack-minded player. Hopefully we will benefit from having him at the club."

The deal includes an option for Bayern to sign him on a permanent deal in 2017.

"I'm looking forward to Munich and playing for FC Bayern," said Coman. "I want to take the next step in my career here and play my part in two successful years for Bayern."

Coman is the second player the German champions have signed from Juventus this season after Chile international Arturo Vidal.
