He’s not suited to our ‘style’ of play in any way at all, he needs to be in a team that has more of the ball and good movement.

He’s not CL level tho.

I could see Almiron playing in the CL, but not for any club that would be anywhere near winning it. I think he would definitely look better in Spain or Germany than he does here, but I can't see any of the top teams going after him.

He'd probably do well at somewhere like Sevilla (not specifically them) a team higher up the table but never really troubles the top tier. Obviously depends as much on play style as anything else, we don't utilise him properly at all. I love the term Brucealona <laugh>

It’s hard to say for me. When he gets into promising positions for us I’m never confident he’s going to get it right, granted there’s probably more pressure and less options given we don’t create much, but even if it was a 2 on 2 break I’d probably expect him to f*** up the shot or pass.

Though if he was in a better team he wouldn’t feel the need to try and do it all himself so much perhaps and you’d see a bit more consistency or end product.

I'm happy to see him depart. He isn't a worldbeater and his style of play doesn't suit whatever it is the Cabbage has them playing i.e. hoofball. Cash in on the £30m and let the lad sit on the bench at a team that will not make it past the last 16 in the CL. That's his level.

This. I could see him doing something similar to Perez but not going to a Prem side.. going to like a Sevilla/Valencia sort of team or a Seria A side like Lazio/Roma/inter Milan starting here n there but never getting a regular run of games to nail down a starting spot.

Are we still looking at getting Ahmed Musa? I'll take a punt on him until the end of the season, ill give him a chance.. he's pacey. Can't be any worse than Joelinton?

He's better than he's been showing recently, cabbage does him no favours.
