The 19-year-old forward signed a four-year deal with first-division side Fiorentina in February, but will be moving down to get valuable playing time.
Perez made one appearance for Fiorentina, playing 15 minutes in a 4-1 loss to Inter Milan last November.
Perez was on the U.S. squad alongside Christian Pulisic at the 2015 Under-17 World Cup.
