The American striker Ricardo Pepi would be nothing short of being a new player for PSV Eindhoven of the Netherlands, all this after spending last season on loan at Groningen, an Eredivisie team where he scored 12 goals in 29 games.
According to the reports, issued by Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist specializing in the transfer market in Europe, the American player is close to agreeing a transfer for five years and 11 million dollars.
As a result, he will leave Augsburg in the German Bundesliga, a team that bought his token and later loaned it to Groningen, where he not only reached the dozen goals but also provided three assists.
“Ricardo Pepi to PSV Eindhoven, closed deal confirmed: he only wanted PSV as revealed a few weeks ago. He understands that the fee will be €10m already agreed with Augsburg, personal terms also agreed last week. Contract until June 2028. The USMNT forward stays in the Eredivisie”, says the information revealed by Romano on social networks about the young Pepi.

In addition, it is known that if a possible sale is executed by the PSV team, the German Bundesliga team will obtain a percentage of its sale, which is between ten and twenty percent, good news for the German team.
The team where Pepi played had an unfortunate year, because despite the good performance of the striker, he ended up in the positions that condemn him to relegation.
Pepi, an American with Mexican roots, arrived in Europe after breaking Major League Soccer with FC Dallas, a team with which he demonstrated his offensive power and ended up scoring a total of 15 goals and three assists in 55 games.
