Bayern Munich are yet to decide whether or not to pursue their interest in Landon Donovan.
The American striker is currently on loan at Allianz Arena from Los Angeles Galaxy, in a deal similar to that which saw David Beckham head to AC Milan.
While Beckham looks destined to complete a permanent switch to the Italian giants, Donovan's future remains uncertain.
"Landon Donovan is a good player and certainly interesting," Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Munich-based newspaper tz.
"But when your club already has (Miroslav) Klose, (Luca) Toni and is also getting Ivica Olic, we are thinking that our fourth striker should be a talented youngster."
While Rummenigge appears to be suggesting that a move for the 26-year-old is unlikely, Bayern coach Jurgen Klinsmann has hinted that a deal could still be possible.
"I have not given up on Landon yet," he said.
"It is up to him to take the chances we have allowed him to pursue.
"He has the potential to succeed and we are keen to make sure he does."
Meanwhile, Italian international Toni is hoping that Bayern will resist any approaches for talismanic playmaker Franck Ribery over the summer.
"He will be among the best players in the world in a few years," said the powerful frontman.
"He is a phenomenon and it's understandable that clubs from around the world are looking at him.
"If I was the general manager, I would not let him leave."
On his own future at Bayern, Toni said: "I still have two years left on my contract and I like it in Germany."
