Manchester United & Liverpool amongst clubs interested in 18-year-old MLS sensation

A recent report from England has credited both Manchester United and Liverpool with an interest in Ricardo Pepi.

Who is Ricardo Pepi?

Ricardo Pepi is an 18-year-old centre-forward who is currently plying his trade in MLS with FC Dallas.

Despite only being 18, Pepi has already managed to notch 55 appearances for Dallas, across which he has scored 16 goals and provided four assists.

13 of his goals, meanwhile, have come in the current MLS campaign, whilst the attacker also set a league record for Dallas, becoming the youngest player in MLS history to net a hat-trick:

Pepi’s fine form saw him handed his USMNT senior debut earlier this year, too, and he has since scored three in four for his country.

Premier League sides eye Ricardo Pepi

In turn, as mentioned above, Pepi has found himself linked with some top clubs.

As per the Mirror, Liverpool and Manchester United are among the Premier League sides to have registered an interest in the teen, whilst Brentford and Brighton are also said to be keeping tabs on the situation.

Pepi is currently contracted to Dallas until 2026, suggesting that his club will be in no rush to sell.

However, the report from the Mirror adds that Dallas are braced for offers for the youngster ahead of the January transfer window, with the American outfit hopeful of securing a fee in the region of £10 million for his signature.
