While many will have been focusing on Erling Haaland and how incredible he has been since he joined the club this summer, there might some football fans who will want to take a look at another striker on the books at Manchester City.
Indeed, it is impossible to deny the talent that Haaland has, with his latest goal in the 3-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon taking him to 100 goals in 99 games since leaving Red Bull Salzburg, however there is a South American at the club that is also capable of scoring goals, too.
Julian Alvarez is a forward that already appears to be loving life at the Etihad Stadium this season after finally making the move to England following his deal back in January that saw him remain with River Plate until the summer.
He has already managed to score a couple of goals for the team despite having limited minutes on the pitch, something that many who use www.apostas-desportivas.org have noticed and have decided to wager on when finding the best sportsbooks offering the top odds available.
Being a centre-forward, there may have been some concern about his opportunities at the club given how well Haaland is doing, although it would appear his manager believes that is his best position and that he will thrive in that position.
After admitting how impressed he has been with the Argentine in the short period that they have worked together, he stated: “His numbers, the way he’s played, discover in the last game he can play wider have another in that position, it doesn’t matter if he doesn’t score, but we’ve seen how fast and clinical he is and we are so happy with him. He can play wide but I see him more in central positions.”
It will be interesting to see just how many opportunities the 22-year-old will get this season in the Premier League and the Champions League given the early form that Haaland has been showing.
However, if Alvarez is given the opportunity, then it would not be a surprise if he were to grab it with both hands and run wild with it. He has already shown that he has plenty of quality and knows how to find the back of the net.
Should City require him for a period of time or look to utilize him, then there should not be any concerns about what he will bring to the table.
