Don't disagree with that mate, he's different to Jesus who I think is a bit more versatile and mobile. Édouard imo needs to be the focal point, great feet and superb finisher but perhaps not as dynamic as he could be off the ball. I would welcome him signing but just think a couple of years playing every week would bring him along a hell of a lot and could be better for him as a top flight player.Is it a bigger step up than from the South American football Jesus was playing? Sometimes I think we should take a punt on some of these players but maybe squad limitations hold us back? I still struggle to see why our scouts though Mangala was a better bet than VVD. Was it just that VVD was playing in a "pub" league?
As I posted earlier I think he could come to us if we were not losing the best striker we have ever had meaning that he would be expected to hit the ground running rather than having time to adapt.
