Obligatory impressive YouTube clip:

Is that Galatasaray in the maroon and yellow shirts? That kit reminds me of Mr Claypole from Rentaghost.

If this happens it should be good, as he’ll add some unpredictability to us.

Impressive highlights. Looks a clever player with good pace. I think the number 22 shirt is vacant?

Not gonna lie I've never heard of him and know nothing about him. I don't play FIFA either so can't say "he's great on FIFA ".

All you.need to know is that Roma fans saw him as a viable replacement for Totti until he got injured. If he gets back to that he's worth 3x what we're paying.

He's a midfielder isn't he? Certainly knows where the back of the net is and seems to have lots of composure.

Would add some much needed height, too.

Think he's more of the "number 10" type. Likely to play behind Watkins, or even wide and interchange with Diaby/Bailey

One of those between-the-lines type. A bit attacking midfielder, a bit wide-forward, but not really a winger or a striker.

Has a bit of the Kai Havertz about him I reckon.

That's a good comparison. Knowing Unai, he will know exactly where he's going to fit in.

Love that goal where he takes a touch to the left from a ball over the top, under pressure from the defender, and with his next touch just marmalises it into the near post top corner.
