Bayern Munich chairman Uli Hoeness says that the club are in the market for a defender and a striker in January.

Bayern Munich chairman Uli Hoeness has admitted that his side wish to add a new striker and defender in January.

Bayern were frustrated in their efforts to sign Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marco Reus, who joined Borussia Dortmund, but Hoeness has insisted that they have a stronger squad than their rivals.

"Ultimately, Bayern Munich still have a better quality team than Dortmund. We would rather try to find a central defender. Breno still has a chance to return, but if not, an alternative is needed," Hoeness told

"Our biggest problem is what would we do if Mario Gomez got injured? We are going to need a real star, someone who would be good enough to play for Barcelona or Manchester United."

Bayern are currently top of the Bundesliga, with action due to return on January 20.
