If he stays healthy, he can score 30-goals next season in Serie A
This is the sentiment Udinese has over their new jewel.
Already known as the Colombian Ronaldo, Luis Muriel is yet another prized finding from Udinese's famed scouting network which continually plucks out world class prospects in South America.
The 22-year-old Muriel managed 12 goals in 22 Serie A appearances last season with the Zebrette, even though he faced fitness issues and had a string of injuries throughout the campaign.
Watch the Colombian striker closely enough and you'll begin to see why he's compared to the Brazilian Ronaldo. Plenty of pace, a frame which will continue to bulk up, and a natural eye for goal, these are just some of Muriel's qualities.
Udinese know they won't be able to hold onto him for too much longer, but the player has decided to stay put for another year, knowing that the experience he'll get will prove to be invaluable in the long run.
