Bayern set to sign Swiss star

7 February 2012 17:15

Basel winger Xherdan Shaqiri is in Germany for a medical with Bayern Munich.

The 20-year-old is expected to sign a four-year contract with the Bundesliga giants after the two clubs agreed a reported nine million euros deal for the player.

Sky Sport News said a car with Swiss plates was spotted at Bayern's headquarters earlier on Tuesday afternoon.

Bayern turned to Shaqiri after Borussia Monchengladbach star Marco Reus snubbed the Bavarians in favour of a move to Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.

German sources suggest that Bayern will announce Shaqiri's signing in the coming days.

The Switzerland international will play against Bayern on February 22 when Basel lock horns with the Bundesliga outfit in the last-16 of the Champions League.

But Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes is playing his cards close to his chest.

"I have watched Basel play," Heynckes told Suddeutsche Zeitung.

"It is clear that some players stand out."
