25 goals and 8 assists at Flamengo in 29 games, Inter seem keen to sell, and with Eriksen potentially on the move there it would make an aspect of sense...

A bit of a gamble, but he is 23 now, a good age to make that step up. Slightly different style to Kane so gives us an alternative option!

Could be a good loan, 25 million isn't much in today's money and there is potential upside.

Anyone have any idea how he's fared at Inter?

Not been given a fair crack at the whip imo, only played 9 times before being sent back to Brazil!

I just got this naging hunch that he’s more of a home player rather making it in Europe

Doesn't strike me as Mourinho signing, he prefers bigger strikers up front, we have similar players to Barbosa in Moura and Son. I guess there's not many strikers available so we can't be too picky in terms of what type they are, just if they can score goals or not.

Well, not that similar considering he's an out and out striker and neither Son or Lucas are.

Just watched the customary YouTube vid and at the 0.34 mark he does about 18 stepovers in 2 seconds. I'm in, sign him up 👍
