Birmingham's record signing, apparently in the region of £6,500,000 rising up to £9,500,000 based on other stuff, and thats a lot of money for a club like Birmingham City to pay for a striker who has only proven himself in the Mexican League. A lot of South American strikers don't settle in England, so obviously it is a risk. I don't think we'll see too much of him at first and the Blues fans are going to have to be patient however I think if he's given a while he could cut it in the Premiership. His goal record is decent, theres no doubt about that and has proven himself as a consistent goalscorer, but we have to bear in mind the adaptation process.Explanations:Balance:
A rather inconsistent feature of his, sometimes he can be a real pitbull and show a good amount of strength however some other times he can play very weak, obviously he has a very low height and weight, so his balance needs to be higher anyway to compensate that, I've put it at middle-ground so an a 'yellow arrow' day he'll be fairly strong whereas on a 'blue arrow' he'll be rather weak. Speed:
Extremely quick and is real threat for opposition defenders when he runs at them with pace, his main asset is his acceleration though, as he is extremely quick off the mark and hits top speed almost immediately, he may not look as fast as making him out to be, but try it in game, his low height and weight make him faster than you'd expect
His main asset really, he can very easily twist and turn away from defenders and combined with his pace and dribbling ability, make him very hard to play against. I think he'll surprise a lot of defenders with his quick movements next season.Header & Jump:
Rather surprisingly, he is decent in the air. Don't get me wrong, he isn't going to beat Christopher Samaba in the air but has quite a good leap and can header fairly decently.Special Stars:
He loves to dribble he is always trying to take on his man, very typically South American in this aspect also he loves to try tricks and I've even seen him do the flip-flap, in addition to this, the way he shields the ball with his technical abilities is also very good.
