Almeida to PL

  • Just seen that Andre Almeida is being linked to a few PL clubs (Everton, Wolves, West Ham). Checked his stats and seems pretty decent.

    Does anyone think he’s worth a long hold, or is it a case of selling at the peak of this media hype? 28p at the moment

  • From the sun:

    EVERTON and Wolves head a five-strong Premier League pack chasing Benfica’s title-winning right-back Andre Almeida.

    The 28-year-old Portuguese international produced a hugely impressive 12 assists and two goals to help the Lisbon giants pip Porto for this season’s Primeira Liga.

    To put it in context, that’s one more goal and an identical number of assists as Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold managed during his stellar Premier season.

    It’s also more assists than Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane managed during Manchester City’s treble-winning season.

    However due to his relatively modest wages, Almeida could be snapped up for a bargain £10million this summer, a fraction of Alexander-Arnold’s current value.

    Everton and Wolves’ Portuguese bosses Marco Silva and Nuno Espirito Santo lead the chase for the eight-times-capped Portugal defender, who has made it clear he wants to test himself in the Premier League.

    Leicester City, Southampton and Brighton are also keen to sign Almeida, who has won four Primeira Ligas, two Portuguese Cups, four League Cups and two Super Cups with Benfica.

    Anyone know more about him?

  • it wont be west ham.

    Fredericks has nailed down the RB spot now and Zaba has a 1 year extension. The board wont spend money on a 3rd RB when its needed elsewhere. Just lazy press linking every PL club with a player.

    And Wolves have a very good attacking RB

  • @Munchie63 Good point - thats so true. Then I guess a move to Everton makes sense. Him and Digne could be dangerous together.
