Having watched the Bayer Leverkusen v Villarreal match – which ended 3-2 to Villarreal – there was one player that really stood out.
It was not Giuseppe Rossi but his strike partner Nilmar. He came on as a substitute in the 68th minute and scored in the 70th with a neat turn and finish. He is 5ft 10″, can head a ball and finish well. The Brazilian international clinched the game in the 94th minute with a composed finish.
I believe this would be a perfect signing for Tottenham. He’s quick and is generally an all-round good striker. Perhaps Harry was looking at the wrong Villarreal forward?
This man would not cost much more than £14 million and I think that he would easily justify that price, Nilmar looks like a player that would be well suited to the Premier League, while Rossi is too one-footed.
Would Harry and Daniel be willing to take a gamble, or will they be after a more established name this summer?
