AS Roma are discussing a move to sign Pepe.
According to a report from Calciomercato, AS Roma are linked with Gremio winger Pepe.
The 22-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2022.
Pepe made 58 appearances across all competitions for Gremio, scoring 10 goals and supplying 4 assists in return.
The 22-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Brazil.
Paulo Fonseca wants to sign a new winger and Pepe is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Fonseca is a long term admirer of Pepe and believes he can get the most out of the Brazil international.
Pepe would provide a good variety to AS Roma’s attack.
According to Calciomercato, “Roma turns their sights to Brazil. As Il Tempo wrote yesterday, there has been a meeting between Adriano Spadoto, agent of Gremio winger Pepè, and the Giallorossi sporting director Gianluca Petrachi. There were talks about a move to the Italian capital for Gremio’s 22-year-old left-winger, who has scored 6 goals this season. Pepè can however only arrive in the summer, as there is no more room for non-EU players at Roma this season.”
