    USA starlet promoted to Fiorentina senior team

    Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa has promoted USA starlet Joshua Perez to senior team. The talented winger made Fiorentina squad list for today’s Empoli clash and is sitting on the bench.

    That’s the first time that the 18-year-old promise joins the senior team for an official Serie A game and local media claim that the Portuguese tactician could give him a chance to play with the senior squad very soon.

    Fiorentina managed to get Perez’s signature last year signing him from under the noses of PSV and AC Milan that had been scouting the USA wonderkid for long time.

    Perez’s is under contract with Fiorentina until 2019 and is impressing with LaViola Primavera team having scored four goals and registered as much assists in the opening nine games of the season.

    ​Perez is one of USA’s most talented prospects alongside Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Cristian Pulisic who has the same age of his Fiorentina counterpart but has already made senior debut (and scored his first goal) with the Bundesliga giants.
