A good friend of mine supports Sunderland, and his talk is always "Gyan this, Gyan that."
Well, I would be excited if this man came to my club.
Since a promising World Cup, Asamoah Gyan has gone from strength to strength. He shows incredible ball control, good movement, an ability to finish and strength on the ball. He is hard to deal with, basically.
Statistically, Gyan scored a goal every three games, which is respectable, especially in a debut season in England.
With the departure of Darren Bent, Gyan has, at times, had to cope with leading the line alone. He has done it well, but the question must be asked: What happens when he gets injured?
Well, he was injured, and Sunderland had no out-and-out striker—disaster.
A bright future for this man is in the cards.
