Looks like a slightly quicker & taller ndombele

Like the boy already.
he might just do.
Any details on the deal? Option to buy?
Good pedigree at Benfica
Portugal rep at every Junior level
Speaks Portuguese same as Moura and Jose.
What's not to like?
Usual You tube reservations.

Looking at that video(I know it's just a few mins long so could be wrong) I would say he would play CM instead of Sissoko just now as looks like a box to box player also. Still need a DM to play next to him and if/when ndombele is fit.

Nice clips in that vid. Looks to have good feet and an eye for a pass. A bit worrying that the Benfica fans on here don't seem to rate him though.

never seen him play but the fact that adel taarabt starts over him as a central midfielder doesn't fill me with a lot of hope.

Did a little research... he was a full time starter for them in 18/19 then they got a new coach, he changed the system from a 4-3-3 where Gedson started as a b2b player, to a 4-2-3-1 and basically stopped playing Gedson altogether.

Now the weird thing is we don't play a 4-3-3 either. But as a loan/Sissoko replacement this transfer seems good in a vacuum, with our other issues and thinking Winks could play a similar role I don't really get it as much.

Can't say I know anything about the kid other than his numbers won't make him a Fantrax favourite. But, he's young so I'm interested in seeing what Jose can do with him.

This is how it's gonna end: Gedson ready for West Ham. Spurs never interested in the player
