About where I’m at. He’s got the stats but they don’t match the eye test. Makes you wonder if he can take the step up.
He has 19 non-penalty goals, 5 pens and 9 assists. He has 0.9 goals and assists per 90( minus pens), which is very good. He's taking nearly 3 shots a game this season, which is good, but down from 4.2 last season. The best strikers take lots of shots, Harry Kane is taking 3.7 this season, down from a high of 5.3 in 2017/18.
There's no xG data from the championship though, so you can't really see whether he's massively overperforming or whether he's performing as expected. I guess you'd need more data to predict how he'd do in the PL. But he's scored 74 goals in the last 3 seasons, and I guess in a simple way the best indicator of future goals is past goals, no?
I've only seen clips so I don't know, but if he can offer a skill set which we don't have then it could be a good idea. Also we have other players who can score and do spectacular things, it's not like he'd be your main guy. Plus he's gonna be a hard worker and good character, coming up from the lower leagues.
