I didn’t watch him tonight but saw him against Monchengladbach when Frankfurt lost 4-0 (their previous match) and... pretty poor. He’s a fine striker who has had one good season finally. We need a star
Not true. Milan wouldn't have bought him if it was. Good stats for the national team and Porto. He for a good return on loan last season and he is having a great one this time. Stats comparable to Dzeko's in Germany.
He is 2nd top scorer in the Bundesliga and 3rd best minutes for goals.
Your point that he looked poor when his team performed poorly is a rather a moot one.
I see him as a Dzeko sort of signing, good enough to play for the club and a confidence player. He has good link up play, dribbling ability, and two good feet, think he would link up well with Jesus to his left.
I think he would do better than his one season in Milan because he knows our Portuguese players from the national team and hopefully they would help him settle in and we would play to his strengths.
