Bayern Munich have signed striker Mario Mandzukic from Wolfsburg on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The Bavarians have lost Ivica Olic in the off-season, and although they have re-signed Claudio Pizarro, they were also linked with a move for Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko.

However they were priced out of a move for the Bosnian, and turned their attention to Croatian Mandzukic, who scored three goals at Euro 2012.

The club’s general manager Christian Nerlinger admitted the 26-year-old’s performances in the tournament were a factor behind the move, along with his consistent performances at club level.

“We are delighted to bring a top Bundesliga striker like Mario Mandzukic, and we have also seen in Euro 2012 matches that he has special skills,” Nerlinger told the club’s official website.

“He will continue to strengthen our squad.”

Mandzukic moved to the Bundesliga from Dinamo Zagreb in 2010, and is Bayern’s third summer signing alongside Pizarro, and former Borussia Moenchengladbach defender Dante.
