I have to disagree. There were people literally bashing Paratici for spending 40mln on a player that had a half of a good season instead of spending the money on generational talent Tonali. And how Beppe owned Paratici in getting the Italian.
He needs to improve his decision making. He tries to do too much on his own but hopefully that's just a side effect of being at a weaker team.
I still think he thrives most by starting out wide where he can make use of his pace, but he's quite productive coming inside to be on the finishing end of a play. Imo he'd replace Berna perfectly, as long as he can step up to the expectations.
More like Dybala. Similar age when we bought both for quite steep a price. Both attacking players who can play in a couple of different roles.
Of course, even if he is half as good as Dybala, I'll be happy.
