A Serbian Quest?

Rumors are that Villarreal are looking closely at 17-year-old Serbian striker Danijel Aleksic. The bumbling White House in Madrid are also interested in the Serb, which could make signing him to come to Vila-Real a little difficult.

Although still very young, Aleksic has scored six goals this season for his club FK Vojvodina. Although he spends most of his international time on the U-19 squad with Serbia, he has already gained a cap with the regular Serbian national side.

I am always up for picking up good young players...but still, can we get a little defense? Without any speculation as to defenders over the break or in the rumor mill right now, I am beginning to wonder if Pellegrini has plans to pull Kiko up in central defense next year. Kiko has gotten quite a few showings on the bench this year, and it might be the 20-year-old's chance to step up to the main team.
