The expert claimed that Leroy Sane is the prime target for the Bundesliga champions and they have other targets on their mind too.

Speaking to Get German Football News, Falk was asked about Bayern moving for Sane, and the expert revealed that they have a B-list that the Bundesliga giants do not want to dip into (h/t Express):

“Also, there is the German option, [Julian] Draxler, or [Timo] Werner is an option to play on the wing.

“Pepe – they scouted him a lot of times, I know that the board had said no to a transfer because he’s not the quality of Bayern Munich, but if they don’t get any winger, perhaps they have to rethink Pepe But I would say no.”

The report adds that Manchester United are also keeping tabs on Pepe, who is one of the best players in Ligue 1.
