Despite having played as centre forward for both Sampdoria and Inter, before coming to Italy he played in some occasions as full back for Charlton Athletic. In fact it seems that several coaches wanted to buy him to use him as full back (I occasionally read of him helping in defence when playing as striker). He was described as a striker with an accurate and almost unfailing shot, mobility, sense of goal and good ability of freeing himself from the opponent marking him. During his first period at Sampdoria, he was compared to Gabetto due to his darts and his spirited and incisive playstyle. He apparently was a player who rapidly thought what to do but wasn't too fast. Therefore accurate long passes were needed to give him the chance to escape from the marking. However he sometimes was more practical, moving often to the flank and being the one who passed the ball, especially accurate crosses, showing to be not a player who used to break through defences but a centre forward with a decent vision of the game despite the position. He scored almost every time he got the ball but he rarely stood out, probably showing not to have a great mentality, but at the end he seemed to manage to do something in every match. He was sometimes considered the team's playmaker so I guess he may have played as inside forward as well. It seems he was also a good header (it seems from a video online that shows him scoring with a header, that he had also a nice jumping ability), had good reaction, a thunderous shot and could score with first time shots and volleys. In a match against Triestina he had to play as goalkeeper due to the injury for Sampdoria's regular keeper and he actually did very well. I didn't read anything about outstanding dribbling or technique.
I thought these changes should be applied:
Add SS position (maybe), DEF 45 (maybe), TS 81, DA max 80, DS 77, SPA 74, LPA 76, SA 85, FKA 60s, CUR low 70s, TEC max 82, MEN 77, GK 55 (maybe), TW 81.
