What will Moses Simon bring to the Premier League?

Nigerian winger, Moses Simon, is being reported to be on the list of some Premier League clubs. In the winter, the Nantes star was said to have been targeted by Leeds United and Newcastle United. Come this summer, Simon, who enjoy casino online, could be moving to England. 

According to French outlet ButFootballclub, Simon is a target for Newcastle United heading into the summer window, as the Premier League club eye attacking reinforcements. They want the player to add depth to the side and ease the creative burden on Allan Saint-Maximin.

Born in Jos, North-Central Nigeria, Simon started his early career at the famous GBS Academy of Africa region. After spending 10 years there, he was linked with a move to Ajax, Liverpool and Tottenham. After some tumultuous weeks, he signed a pre-contractual agreement with the Dutch giant and played two friendly games. 

Although, they decided not to sign a contract with the young Nigerian, Ajax’s partner club AS Trencin from Slovakia made a move and signed young prospect. In just one year, Simon shone brightly with 13 goals in 33 matches. 

He then moved to Gent. Simon helped the club to its first and only league title after joining during the winter transfer window, scoring six goals in the final nine matches of the regular season. After three years and more than 100 appearances in Belgium, things took a downward turn for the winger. 

He failed to catch fire after a move to Spanish club Levante, and after one season he was loaned to French club Nantes, which got the option to buy him on a permanent basis. In the northwest of France, Simon has found his feet again and risen to become one of the most influential wingers in the league. So far this season, he has reached double figures for goals and assists, which excites fans of the English league as well as www.sagamblingsites.co.za.

Standing just 1.68m tall, what the diminutive Simon lacks in physical presence he makes up for in pace, dynamism and creativity. He is versatile, capable of playing in a variety of positions across the attack, but his favoured zone is on the left flank, from where he can come inside onto his right foot and score goals like his wonder strike to beat RC Lens in December, a match in which Nantes came from behind to win 3-2. His acrobatic goal celebrations are worth the entrance fee alone.

Moses can play on both flanks. He is mobile and makes the most of his excellent acceleration and pace. When he notices empty spaces between defenders, he takes advantage. He is physically strong too.

The Nigerian skill set seems tailor made for the Premier League. He won’t find it difficult adjusting owing to his experience and exposure. However, he tends to be inconsistent at times and sometimes makes poor decision.
