The quality of Julian Alvarez:

In terms of quality, the former River Plate striker is a force to reckon with. He proved to be instrumental as River Plate were able to clinch their first league title in more than six years.

In terms of his performances, Alvarez netted 18 times as River Plate emerged as Argentine Champions.

More to that, he was also part of the team that clinched the Copa America title. However, he did not get that much of regular game time considering the level of players at the country in that tournament.


Alvarez is one player who looks built for the Premier League. And playing under a manager like Pep would only be given him more edge.

He may prove to be an instrumental player at City as the years go by.
