Arsenal were his first choice, and it sounded like they were going to buy him until he couldn't get work permit. Supposedly PSG were so keen, they gave the hard sell so much they ran him out of town. He chose us over everyone else and posted a picture of himself next to the badge, so I'm delighted how keen he is. Not every player is going to be born an Evertonian or even know much about us, but he now has the chance to fall in love with the club and I'll excuse any comments which don't give us max respect as a big club, until he's been here a while.

There is no doubt he had some very keen admirers, Anderlecht seem to have helped us get him, so they could have him on loan for a season, that in itself is unusual and a bit ridiculous. But there is little doubt the kid is special at all standards he's played, and he'll get chances to play at higher level with Anderlecht in CL, but you'd think they would be well positioned to judge. His stats speak of a prolific forward and I'm not convinced he's really that clinical or trying that hard as yet.

When you polish out the imperfections, you sometimes lose a bit of the magic. It's often hard to put creativity in a comfortable box or framework, but potential and talent wise, he is hugely exciting.

Good start for him, should get a lot of goals this season. Have to expect to end up as league top scorer.

Anderlecht knew he was out of their league, they couldn't compete financially for him. He needed another year in Belgium to get citizenship.

Think he would have been at Arsenal if he get special disp. on work permit issue.
