Pericles Pereira


This may be an unfamiliar name to most but Pereira may well be one of the most promising young defensive talents around. The 21-year old stands at 6 foot 4 and plays in the Portuguese league for Gil Vicente. More commonly known as Pecks, he has been a stand out performer for the Portuguese outfit and is being tracked by the likes of Manchester City. He is a clever defender who specialises in reading the game and interceptions but his strong physical presence gives him an aerial advantage too. Pecks also seems comfortable on the ball from what I have seen of him and likes to play out from the back.
