1. FC Köln signed on Friday on loan from the Latvian first division club Valmiera FC Tolu Arokodare. Who is the 19 year old Nigerian?

Who did the people of Cologne land? The Nigerian Arokodare is 19 years old, who previously played for the Latvian first division club FC Valmiera and scored 15 goals in 16 games this season. He is almost two meters tall, a real chunk. The sequences that can be found on the net show a massive striker who can shoot with both feet and uses his body effectively in a header game near the goal.

They also show a far from mature, somewhat clumsy-looking attacker who shoots from the most impossible positions, often closes too early, often gets hectic in front of the goal and often overlooks the better positioned next man. Balls then land on the third floor or well next to the goal instead of with the other player.

Even though it is difficult to assess the quality of the opponents in Latvia's "Virsliga" when studying video, how fast is the pace that he can go. He works quickly, but it remains to be seen how he can prevail in a direct duel against Bundesliga defenders. Cologne's new number seven reminds a little of Sehrou Guirassy, ​​who played for Cologne and could not assert himself, but has long since kicked back in France - but was able to assert himself there. In this respect and in view of the low rental fee (around 300,000 euros including the purchase option), this personnel does not pose any real risk for the Cologne residents.
