Spent last season on loan at St. Gallen in Switzerland and will spend 19-20 season there as well.

Played in 31 of the 36 league matches, starting 20 of them. 4 goals, 3 assists. Not bad for someone who just turned 21 back in January. Interestingly enough he played RW for the most part but also played RB in a handful of games. I have not seen him play...wonder if he could do the job at RWB in the future?

Looks like he scored 3 goals in a preseason friendly against Thun on Saturday as well!

Can’t tell you the relief I just got there when I realised it wasn’t the bakayoko I was thinking of when I opened this with dread

I just checked and i must have seen him live at least twice, that being said i did not know that he was an inter player so i did not pay any special attention to him. What can i say about him well he was not outstanding thats for sure and thats the problem. If you are at 21 in the swiss league and especially at st gallen and your not outstanding chances are you re never gonna make it in a big team. I mean shaq at 19 had very similar numbers in the swiss league then again so did salah at 20.

Anyways i guess my point is i ve not seen enough of him but the fact that he was not outstanding in the 2 games i saw of him and the fact that there is 0 hype around him here in switzerland i d say he is more likely than not never gonna make it to a level good enough for inter.

That being said players develop at different speeds and considering that st. gallen was terribly inconsistent this season and that it was his first season in switzerland probably without speaking the language (german) properly he did not do bad.
Now that i know he s our boy i m gonna try to watch him closer this season so i can give a proper feedback but i would not get my hopes up of ever seeing him at Inter.

You can watch him in the first half here:

#11 in white. They beat Bochum 3-0 yesterday...he missed a PK :palm:

He has some nice moments in there too though. Playing as a LW it seems.
