Dallas teenager Ricardo Pepi acknowledges that he would like to join a top European club in the future, name-checking the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Dallas forward Ricardo Pepi has admitted that he has his sights set on a future move to a top European club.

Despite his 19th birthday not coming until January, Pepi has already established himself as a star player in the MLS, contributing 13 goals in 27 outings for Dallas.

Having also earned a senior cap for the United States, speculation is intensifying regarding the next step in his career.

While Ajax have been linked with a bid for the prospect, Pepi has talked up a potential switch to the likes of Chelsea or Real Madrid.

Speaking to TUDN, Pepi said: "I think it's a good time to [go to Europe], to make that leap, but we have a league. There are still six or seven games left with FC Dallas and I think if the opportunity comes and everything presents itself to go to Europe, it would be a good opportunity.

"The Eredivisie is a league where there are many young players. I'm obviously a young player who has to grow a lot in football, obviously the plan would be to someday play in Real Madrid, Chelsea, any big team, but it is a league with a lot of potential and that helps young people a lot. I think there is a lot of interest."

Pepi has a contract with Dallas which lasts until the end of 2026.
