Ricardo Pepi completes transfer to Dutch giants
The 20-year-old has wanted the move for a number of weeks now since his successful loan spell at Eredivisie rivals FC Groningen came to an end following the season’s conclusion.
Pepi is likely to cost Peter Bosz’s men $11m and will sign a five-year contract in Eindhoven. FC Augsburg forked out $20m for Pepi less than 18 months ago but after failing to score in 16 appearances for the club, the Germans were happy to cut their losses on the Texan.
The former FC Dallas striker proved his class in the Dutch top flight last term however, and after 12 league goals, USMNT interim head coach BJ Callaghan put his faith in Pepi who has since delivered four goals in his last four matches for the senior team- including the third in a 3-0 win over Mexico in last week’s CONCACAF Nations League final in Las Vegas.
