Otavio-RUMOUR

Post by Cjay »

One of a few links that have appeared over the last 24 hours.

This one seems to be the most advanced if any are.

Reports now from reliable sources that we will look to meet his £35million release clause.

However that the Portugal International isn't sure about joining a team who struggled last season (one of the reasons we should have done moves like this 12 months ago instead).

27 year old Brazilian born Portugal International.

Played in the same Portuguese side in 2016 where Orta reportedly first tracked Raphinha.

Has made over 200 appearances for Porto helping them multiple league titles and Cup competitions.

Over the last 4 seasons as a key player he has managed 11 goals and 34 assists in the league and was reportedly close to joining Liverpool 12 months ago.

He is known for his pace and dribbling skills as well as his ability to hold onto the ball in tight areas.

His ability to create and play incisive and accurate attacking passes have made him a key creative force for Porto.

He maybe should score more however but he makes up for that by being a real combative player who is not afraid to do the dirty side of fhe game to help his team.

Convincing him to join us won't be easy but he is as close to a Pablo Hernandez replacement as we have gotten and he would go some way to replacing Raph's creativity.

I like the look of this player. Definitely the type of attacking midfielder #10 we have been missing. Porto always make the European places so he will have plenty of experience of big games.

Yep he’s good, a bit older than the other links but still entering his prime. Would excel in the attacking 2 behind the striker(s).

Definitely Pabloesque, just what we've been crying out for. Seems to time a tackle well too.

I know it's probably nonsense but this makes so much sense.

We haven't had a proper creative number 10 player since Pablo left.

This is a deal we need regardless of Raphinha and KP.

I don't know who Otavio's agent is but almost every player in Portugal is linked to Jorge Mendes in someway.

If ever there was a time for Radz to make use of these contacts he claims to have then this is it.
