By arriving at Premier League, he has hit the right place and since then he is been doing great on the field.
The former player supported the idea of United being interested in him. He added a few more words of compliments regarding the player saying that he can score all type of goals.
“What I like about him is he scores all types of goals. He's at the back post heading things and bullying defenders, and he can score tremendous goals out of nothing.”
Wolves signed the player for £30 million after his impressive performance during his loan spell at the club from Benfica. He has currently scored 43 goals in 96 matches for the club.
