I have watched him in Serie A for a few years and am fairly familiar with him.  Juventus at one stage were favourites to sign him before he signed for Torino.  I can definitely see the Conte linkage here from his time with the Old Lady.  He has a good if somewhat inconsistent shot in him and has a fair amount of pace.  Beats opponents better than Moses but as per his shot taking, he has a somewhat limited end product.  My question marks regarding him would be his marking and coverage of attacking players.  All in all, a better buy than Oxlade-Chamberlain for a right wing back role and I rate the Italian players' defensive and tactical ability at a much higher level than any English defender.  I am satisfied with this purchase and it looks like it's happening as reports are coming in that hevsnd his attorney have arrived in London.

Sounds like a panic buy. In a position we don't need cover in either. Probably a bench warmer that we'll only see in FA cup or League cup games.

sh*te talk mate. You know nothing about him, same as most of us here. We absolutely need cover at right wingback, if he doesn't displace moses then that's fine, we have an option if moses is out injured, or suspended. If he's good, and does displace moses, then we've strengthened our starting 11. All this whinging about not signing anyone from our fans, then when it looks like we've signed someone, the whinging intensifies.

Dyna did post again saying he thought he was a CB and to be fair if he was a CB I would have agreed with him.

Can't say I'm too familiar with the player myself, but the posts here seem to be mainly positive, so if you guys are happy then I'm happy!

Since you watch Serie A, what would you say are his key strength? And what about his crossing? Any good?

He can cross a football, that's a rare skill in this day and age. I'm sick and tired of seeing players deliver rubbish crosses and corners, dead ball specialists failing to beat the first man, or they over hit it, if he can take a good corner and deliver good crosses for Morata to head in, then I'm firmly on his side.

Yep, i love Moses work rate and energy but watching him try and deliver a decent cross is painful. Hopefully this guy can add something different if and when we need him.
