Luca Toni: First part of Bayern's big spend [GALLO/GETTY]
Italy striker Luca Toni is set to join Bayern Munich from Fiorentina.
 
"We have agreed with the player," Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.
 
"He will sign a contract with us through June 30, 2011."
 
The 30 year old striker will cost Bayern $14.8 million, Rummenigge continued.
Toni will travel to Munich on June 8 for a medical examination and will be then officially presented, Rummenigge said.
 
The transfer is part of Bayern's plans to invest massively in a new-look team that it hopes will recapture domestic dominance and become an international force.

Bayern finished the season without a trophy after winning the domestic double the previous two seasons.

It will play in the UEFA Cup next season.
