Lazio Add Ricardo Pepi to List of Summer Transfer Targets

Lazio are searching high and low for possible reinforcements for their frontline and have identified Ricardo Pepi as an interesting option.

The Biancocelesti clearly need to sign a new striker in the upcoming summer transfer window, still having limited options up front following the recent departures of Felipe Caicedo and Vedat Muriqi.

Whilst Felipe Anderson has done well adapting to a false nine role this season, Maurizio Sarri still wants Lazio to pick up a new centre forward in the summer, especially if the team secure Champions League qualification.

As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), Lazio are keeping a close eye on Ricardo Pepi and are interested in picking up the American striker in the summer.

Currently on loan at FC Groningen from Augsburg, the 20-year-old has scored 12 goals and provided three assists in 26 Eredivisie appearances this season, quickly making a name for himself. He is contracted to the German outfit until 2026.
