He's got a good attitude, work rate, pace, strength, leap and personally I prefer him up front and central over Richarlison.
Richarlison is a more clinical finisher but IMO not a striker. He's more dangerous than running with the ball than having his back to goal.
Tosun is our only proven striker but doesn't suit Silvas style of football.
Kean is probably our only other striker but is still adjusting and learning the role.
If we had other midfielders and forwards that scored regularly it wouldn't be such an issue but we don't, so it is.
I'm not sure you can blame the manager for DCL weaknesses and isn't Brands in charge of identifying and bringing in required players.
The club has failed, it's an obvious issue but the club continue to hope rather than be productive in bringing in a proven striker that fits in and can hit the ground running.
We have potential youth, a '30' year old (age not important) ready striker is needed for this season and next.

Having said that in my opinion hes just not good enough but then outside of probably Digne and Richarlison Im not sure any of them are good enough.

If Tosun doesn't suit the manager's way of playing he should change the way we play to suit a player that can score goals. I'm sure l've heard from somewhere that goals win games...
