It’s official – Inter Milan have completed the signing of Swiss international goalkeeper Yann Sommer from Bayern Munich.

The Nerazzurri confirm the 34-year-old former Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper’s arrival in an official announcement.

Sommer arrives at Inter after spending nearly a decade in the Bundesliga. The Swiss international joined Gladbach from Basel in the summer of 2014.

Sommer made a total of 335 appearances for the German team during his eight and a half seasons at the club. Then, last January, Sommer made the switch to German giants Bayern Munich.

The Bavarians signed the Gladbach keeper as injury cover for captain Manuel Neuer. In his six months at Bayern, Sommer helped them to the Bundesliga title.

He also played every minute of Bayern’s round of sixteen tie against Paris Saint-Germain, and their elimination in the quarterfinals against eventual winners Manchester City.

In total, Sommer made a total of 25 appearances for the German champions.

Inter Milan Seal The Deal For Bayern Munich Keeper Yann Sommer

The Swiss international hasn’t spent more than half a season in Bavaria, however.

He has decided to join Inter. The Nerazzurri sign the 34-year-old on a two-year deal with the option of an additional season.

Sommer isn’t likely to be the first season that Inter sign this summer. With both Andre Onana and Samir Handanovic both having headed for the exit door, the Nerazzurri will have to replace the both of them.

Reportedly, 21-year-old Shakhtar Donetsk goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin is Inter’s other goalkeeping target this summer. Sommer and the Ukrainian could fight it out for the first-choice spot next season.

In addition to his exploits at club level, Sommer has also been the first-choice Number One for Switzerland for the better part of a decade.

The new Inter keeper was the starter for his country at the World Cup in Qatar last winter. He has made a total of 83 appearances for the national team.
