1. He’s the perfect compliment to Raman and… everyone else
This has been the key, right? That’s why we brought in Michael Gregoritsch. We thought he was going to be the solution that we’ve long sought after. But that hasn’t been the case at all. Gregoritsch is not a hold-up striker, he’s not really a specific striker at all. Just kind of an opportunistic fox in the box.
With Raman being a speedy, off the ball wizard, he needs a target man, someone who can hold up play, link together the attack and hold down a presence in the opposing goal box. That is the very definition of Arkadiusz Milik. He is a physical striker, an aerial threat, the kind of guy that plays with his back to the goal and that is exactly what this attack needs.
It’s also what Amine Harit needs. With so much responsibility falling on Harit, the Moroccan international needs someone he can fire balls too from wherever he happens to be on the pitch. That’s what he does, that’s what he looks for, and there just isn’t the potential for that these days.
Milik completes this attack. He is the pinnacle of transfer success, he’s exactly what he need, and now I’ve gone and gotten my hopes up. Damn.
