[AMERICANS ABROAD] The first player on the U.S. under-15 boys national team to move to Europe is Joshua Perez. The nephew of former U.S. World Cup player and current U.S. under-14 national team coach Hugo Perez moved to Fiorentina in Italy on a three-year contract after training at such clubs at AC Milan.

Joshua Perez, who can play any attacking position or in midfield, is considered one of the most skilled players to come along at his age. He played for Chivas USA in the Development Academy before signing with Fiorentina.

The high school freshman had verbally committed to UCLA, but few expected him to wait to turn pro.

Perez, who also reportedly signed a deal with Nike, is with the U-15s for the Trofeo Delle Nazioni in Grandisca.
