Good that you pointed out he is a forward for Colombia too and not just Sevilla. I thought he was a goalkeeper for Colombia

This guy just reminds me of luke warm strikers like of the past like Cacau, Fred and Kanoute. I am just not excited by him , he is 29 in a few months and yeah, just not thrilled. I'd take him for 15M.

IF he arrives , of course I hope he does well.

I think he might be coming, if the price is right then I'm not going to bash our management about him. However, he is a player that requires decent service. Without it, he is going to be another Huntelaar type signing (Huntelaar much better IMO by the way).

He reminds me of a hybrid between Javi Moreno and Ricardo Oliveira ... good enough for the spanish league but completely out of the element in the Italian league.

From what I've seen I can't say that he's great at something ... Dribbling, aerial play, strength, technique, positioning, poaching ... all seem average. Even Doumbia has better highlights than this guy. Overall good rounded striker but far from a difference maker and let's not forget that he probably doesn't speak Italian and it will take him a while to get accustomed.

Haven't followed him and truly hope I'm mistaken but right now I'd probably have taken someone like Immobile or Gabbiadini over him...

I don't think I've ever seen him score unless there was a major gap in the opposition's defence or if he got a pass behind the defenders and that doesn't work well in SerieA, where 80% of the teams play with their defensive line on the 16m line.
He's not bad on crosses but we are, so no extra point there either

I dont think he's what we need. Another Matri. Maybe worse.

I also get a strong Oliveira vibe about him.. I wouldn't want him here at the rumored 25-30m, hes a very good goal scorer but pretty limited player all round from what I've seen and at 28 hes not worth that money

To make it worse messed up the Jackson M. deal and is now after Bacca for similar money

I must be the only person who thinks he is better than Martinez.

20 goals in Real/Barca league > 21 goals in fodder Primeira Liga.

No offense to any Portuguese friends here

No, our South America scout Zapata agrees with you.




None of them amaze me. And both would fail here unless we fix the midfield or get Ibra.
