According to reports, Bayern Munich have pulled out of the race to sign both Nicolas Pepe and Hakim Ziyech in the European summer.
The German giants have been linked with the African duo over the last month, but latest reports suggest that Bayern have shifted their focus elsewhere.
Ziyech has enjoyed another superb season for Ajax Amsterdam and heading into Tuesday evening's Uefa Champions League semifinal clash, the Morocco international has scored 20 goals and assisted 20 in 44 appearances across all competitions this season.
Ivory Coast winger, Pepe, has been one of the breakthrough stars of the season and has directly contributed to 33 goals in 36 appearances for Ligue 1 club Lille this season so far.
The latest media reports, though, have distanced the 23-year-old with a move to Munich with the Bavarians said to be turning their focus to signing Benfica wide-man Jota.
Both Ziyech and Pepe have been linked with a move to several English Premier League clubs.
