There are some fans who know absolutely nothing about him, with one stating they are “so confused” by who is being spoken about.
They likely won’t get too much from this season, as has only made one start and three substitute appearances in the Eredivisie this campaign, though he has managed to score two goals in that limited time.

The lack of knowledge on the attacking midfielder has got some people looking for something that can help them make a judgement on him.
Sources being looked at are the other transfer links involving him, YouTube and Football Manager, though one fan did remind everyone “Trezeguet looked like Robben on YouTube”.
If they opt to look at his statistics from last season, some fans may be impressed, as the attacking midfielder recorded a respectable 10 goals and six assists from 23 league starts and five appearances off the bench.

There do seem to be a couple of fans who know about him, with it being a positive sign that they are excited about the potential signing.
His international record can also be seen as an encouraging sign, as he has four goals and one assist from ten caps.
However, it does have to be said that for all of the excitement, he is not a striker, so despite being someone who could turn out to be very useful, it can be argued that he should not be the centre of attention.
Get in my club, I don’t even care anymore.
