Pepi to PSV: United States striker set for move to Eredivisie runners-up
Ricardo Pepi's strong season at Dutch side Groningen has put European clubs on high alert. But the 20-year-old Texas native might be staying in the Eredivisie -- and moving to one of the competition's top clubs.
Fabrizio Romano on Thursday reported that PSV Eindhoven are tying up a transfer for Pepi and are deep in negotiations with his parent club Augsburg to get the deal done.
