This guy would be there to score the goals, and they would feed off scraps around him. In a lot of ways he would be an easier type of player to slot in, as Rom was goal focused and played very central and high. He took a while to settle in at Sporting, but he's been averaging 1.5 goals per game in 2017, have a look at stats.
I like Rondon, but he's not good enough.
Yeah Sporting though isn't it. And how often in his career has he scored like that?
I think with Sandro, Klaassen and potentially Gylfi we're looking at a system of lots of goalscoring forwards playing off the big man / playmaking forward.
Rooney can do that role superbly of course, but I don't think we want him chasing lost causes or battling for headers with grocks.
I like the look of Rondon. His hold up play looks solid and he's playing in a jarg side. Given more freedom and better team mates I think he could be a good Europa league level forward.
