Bayern Munich and Ajax eyeing Pepê of Grêmio (,

So many Pepê’s, so little time! This one is Pepê of Gêmio. A report from Brazil claims that Bayern Munich and Ajax are taking a close look at the left winger as a potential signing for the next season.

At Ajax, Pepê supposedly would fill the vacancy left by David Neres, whom the club intends to sell at the end of the season. They see great potential for the Brazilian’s development — and, of course, Ajax is no slouch at that.

Bayern likewise has been inquiring about Pepê. He has scored twice for Grêmio this year. Last season, he racked up nine goals and three assists.

Seriously, you can see the legendary Bayern of the early 70s go up against Johan Cruyff’s Ajax over two legs. It’s very cool.
