Napoli manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has ruled out rivalling Arsenal for Lille's Nicolas Pepe and Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.
Both clubs have been heavily linked with the two players this summer.
However, speaking after their 3-0 win over Liverpool in a pre-season friendly on Sunday, Ancelotti all but gave up his chase of Pepe.
The Ivorian is believed to be close to joining the Gunners on a five-year deal.
"I'm not disappointed. I don't like to talk about players of other teams. The market is so long. We are looking. If there are opportunities, we can do it," the Italian said.
Ancelotti also made it clear he was not after Tierney.
""Honestly, I'm not interested in signing him. We have two good left-backs [in Ghoulam and Rui].
"He is a really good young player, a left-back at Celtic, but we look at a lot of players during the season," he added.
