a complete striker and believes he has what it takes to reach the very top of the game and become one of the best strikers in Europe.

"I think he can be one of the top strikers in Europe. I'm sure he can because he has all these kind of qualities and he doesn't have a specific position on the pitch. He is really complete.

"Where he has to improve is with his technical ability, and he can improve with controlling the ball and this and that but his movement without the ball is really top and his positioning in the box is of a high standard.
