Pepi could play in the Bundesliga or Serie A

The rising American striker trained with Bayern Munich this past winter as part of the relationship between FC Dallas and the Bundesliga giants. It is known that the team from Munich is keen on signing Pepi, but according to reporter Fabrizio Romano, there is an unknown Serie A team that has made a bid to sign the US international.

FC Dallas is aware that it is a matter of time for Pepi to leave Major League Soccer and start his career in Europe, so they have put a $10 million price tag on him. “I feel like I am really prepared for the moment and I’m ready for whatever comes, and I am going to take it all,” said Pepi when asked about a move to Europe in the near future.

While the US international is ready to make the jump to Europe, he is focused on helping his team secure a spot in the 2021 MLS Cup playoffs. FC Dallas are in 11th place in the Western Conference with 27 points and they have a long way to go in order to make it amongst the top seven teams that qualify to the first round.
