Floating around on twitter after mostlybull found the article link

 

26 y/o second striker.  has 45 goals in 90 games for Rapid since 2019.  Like that he is of the right age and has material production.  We are offering only 200k euros because he is a free agent in the summer.   He also played for RBS in the past so he knows the system.

this would be a pretty good move imo ideally we pay what it takes to get him over in Jan versus waiting until the summer

Looked like a fake name when I first saw it.

from the highlights it seems like he's a high energy player that would work well in a pressing system

I thought this topic was going to be a fund raiser for some new disease

"Second striker"? Can we add a "first striker" first?

 

On the other hand, we could finally add Greece to the international roster.

Seems like an ok signing. Was decently productive in similar leagues. Not a mind-blowing impact goal scorer though.

Its a fair take. We can guess at what type of players and how many attackers, etc. they are planning on bringing in, but its impossible especially with this tight lipped team.

I think he can be productive and more composed on the ball than our current crop of attacking players, and its always good to bring in players who can find the back of the net, but its certainly not a DP level signing.

That picture of him on the main page - I keep thinking it's Hugo Lloris. There's a striking resemblance, in my opinion.

Based on the track record, age, and some of those clips - seems like a hell of a signing. Replacement for prime Daniel Royer that we have been missing for years. Could do a lot worse than him and Morgan behind Klimala as your attacking trio.
