Ajax winger Antony has done little to dampen the speculation linking him to a move to Bayern Munich this summer.

The 21-year-old, who is currently on international duty with Brazil at the Tokyo Olympics, has been repeatedly reported as a target for the Bavarians.

Asked about the rumours in the wake of Sunday’s disappointing scoreless draw with the Ivory Coast, the former São Paulo starlet did not avail of the opportunity to deny them.

“These questions are for my advisor and for my family. My focus is currently clearly on the Olympics,” Antony said, per Munich newspaper Abendzeitung.

The right-sided player has only been with Ajax for one season. He joined last July after a deal worth up to £18.2m was announced the previous February.

He has scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists in 46 appearances since arriving in Amsterdam (via Transfrmarkt).
