Another promising Villarreal cantera player bound for the EPL?

New, comments

Aleix Garcia moved last year, now Alfonso Pedraza is rumored to be interesting overseas suitors.

Not only can Pedraza play well, he has a great beard for a youngster, doesn't he?

Last year Aleix Garcia moved to Manchester City; this was a big loss but to be fair he was going to be playing for Villarreal B this season in all probability, and would probably need to get a bit of Segunda experience as well before making the first team.

But Alfonso Pedraza?  That's different.  He's already a B team star, has impressed in a bit of action with the first team--he's definitely ready to make the jump to the first team before too long.  And now Everton are apparently interested in bringing him to Goddison Park in the summer, for a pittance really if this report can be believed.

Anyone else think we ought to just slap huge price tags on all our players, C team and up?  I'm sure Sr. Roig didn't set up the cantera to develop players for the EPL.....
