I love Julian Alvarez the more I see him and his highlights.
Yes he is small and unfortunately many players in Argentina are on the small side but the way he plays and shoots is just prototypical killer striker mentality. Now yes I would like to see him against much bigger defenders to see how well he translates but I would never let Brahim's troubles put me off him.
Brahim doesnt know what he wants to do next and he doesnt have the physical gifts to get him out of jail with his slow thought process. For me Alvarez is the opposite, he understands that he isnt physically gifted to just destroy his opponents so his thought process in attacking situations is better. Brahim closer to goal is also better because around the box defenders have to be more careful whereas in midfield they just maul him and he hasnt learned to cope.
If Alvarez comes he wont be playing as deep as Brahim - He would be playing more similar to Messias who really shone today.
#Pioli : " #Tonali played an amazing game, I don't know how many 2000 are at his level. He did a fantastic job, he's growing a lot". And he is absolutely right. A giant in the middle of the field. #MilanRoma @Vitiello
