The Brazilian striker has excellent ball control, dragging skills and long range shots to the midfield. Of course, the Brazilian is not a big fan of helping the team in defense.
However, the acquisition is a priority for Erik ten Hag after working with Antony in Ajax.
At the beginning of the transfer window, Amsterdam may have sold the striker for around លាន 60 million, but at the end of the transfer window the club only wanted លាន 100 million.
Midfielder Hakim Ziyech or AS Roma striker Justin Kluiver could replace Antony at Ajax.
