Diego Rolan

Recommended Posts

He doesn't seem like a lone striker so can't see us spending this much on him.

Youtube verdict. He's fast. But his assists and goals are pretty painting by numbers stuff. Don't compare to a Big Ben highlights reel that's for sure.

As someone has said he's not an out and out striker something we need to replace Benteke and the price tag is extreme for someone who has had only one good season

 

If he turns out to be gash we will incur a massive loss it would be a gamble and considering the purse strings are so tight we really need to get this replacement right

From what I managed to find online he's very much like gabby. Get shoved out wide/inside forward.

Maybe would work with a big guy next to him up front but I'll be shocked if we spend £12m on this guy.

Never seen him play, but apparently he played out wide a lot and was moved up front last season with a partner, scored 15. Looks decent on the Youtubes.

 

Only 22.

No matter who we sign we will be gambling to some extent. There isn't a striker in the world available to Aston Villa that is going to satisfy what you want.

Good player, would actually prefer him to Embolo.

 

Dunno how true the link is but I'd sign up right now signing Rolan and Adebayor (loan). Rolan would play wider and would be a damm sight better than Gabby or Weimann in those positions.

 Know nothing about him really so no idea what to think about this but I trust our scouting network.

We don't have to play with a target man. Really 12 mil for a striker is nothing these days.

Looks a definite replacement for Gabby, plus ten years to the good.

If he becomes our main striker we could have a really small starting XI. Adding him at 5ft 9 and Gueye roughly the same height along with Gabby, Grealish and Gil

Looks to be fast, technical, tenacious and fairly direct. On the small side but I think he wouldn't play as a striker for us, more where Grealish/N'Mongbia have been playing.

We are never going to replace Benteke in a month of Sundays. We need to recast the Villa attack in a different mold so we are not relying on a single goalscorer.

If this bloke offers us something different then fabulous, as long as there is also another striker coming.

Yeah I'd take Harry Kane, but only if Spurs pay 99% of his wages as I don't like his face.

Kane out!

He looks a very good player and a big improvement on Gabby. Him and Sinclair either side of a front man is going to work full backs to death.
