PSV Eindhoven have reached a full agreement with FC Augsburg over the signing of Ricardo Pepi. According to Fabrizio Romano the Eredivisie club will pay €10m for the 20-year-old striker. Pepi’s contract at PSV will be valid until June 2028.
Pepi spent last season on loan in the Dutch top flight with FC Groningen. Despite scoring 12 goals in 29 appearances, the US international striker was unable to prevent Groningen from being relegated to the Eerste Divisie for the first time in 23 years. The talented attacker was keen to leave FC Augsburg and has opted for a return to the Netherlands.
Ricardo Pepi kicked off his professional career with FC Dallas in the MLS. He scored 13 goals in 31 appearances during the 2021 campaign before making the move to Germany. At Augsburg, he played 16 times but failed to make a single goal contribution. Next season he’ll be playing under Peter Bosz at PSV. An official announcement from the club is expected soon.
