The 32-year-old Italian forward battled an achilles tendon injury for most of the second half of last season but still finished as Bayern's leading scorer in league play, tallying 14 goals in 25 Bundesliga appearances.

The 6ft 5in striker has previously played at Palermo and Fiorentina and has scored 16 goals in 47 appearances for his country.

Toni's form at Euro 2008 was disappointing, however, he was still been called up by coach Marcello Lippi for Italy's first two 2010 World Cup Qualifiers.
