According to CBS Sports, Liverpool are interested in signing FC Dallas forward Ricardo Pepi, who is attracting interest from big clubs in Europe.
What’s the story?
Well, CBS Sports believe Liverpool face serious competition for Pepi, who has handed in a transfer request.
They claim that Borussia Dortmund, Ajax, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich are interested in the 18-year-old, as well as the Reds.
By the looks of things, Pepi is a potential star of the future.
CBS Sports add that an $8m (£6m) bid has already been made by Sampdoria, although FC Dallas rejected it.
The MLS outfit are keen to keep Pepi until after the 2022 World Cup, as they feel his value could skyrocket after the tournament.
As things stand, CBS Sports write that an offer in the region of $12m – $15m (£9m – 11m) would be needed to convince FC Dallas to sell.
Liverpool should be all over Ricardo Pepi deal
The Texas-born striker wants to leave, he’s only valued at around £10m, and he looks to be a seriously exciting prospect.
With that in mind, Liverpool have to be all over this deal.
Pepi looks like the next big thing, and FC Dallas are asking for peanuts in context of the finances of a Premier League club.
Even if Liverpool sign him and things don’t work out, he is young enough and promising enough for the Reds to even make a potential profit.
With clubs such as Inter Milan and Bayern Munich eyeing Pepi, he must have something special about him.
Hopefully, Fenway Sports Group and James LeBron can use their American connections to get the USA international to Anfield.
