He's looked quality on loan, really deserves a chance with us... Could save us 15-20 million
Well he is regarded as the best dribbler in the league and when you consider that Liverpool have just forked out £7million on a young striker in the league who looks really good despite his low goals tally.

A league where a season and 2 ago that the 1 of the players of the season was playing until late in their career, Michu, piti(who scored 18 goals last season in the league but no PL club came in for him because he is 31) and prieto. The last two made this seasons revisita team of the season.

A lot young players have been linked with massive clubs like Jese, Deulofeu, Sergi Roberto, Vida and etc. Some of their prices are near the range you mention. Even players like Illarramendi made the move a season and a half a go from the spanish third division to la liga and now 14 months after his top flight debut he is wanted by Arsenal.

I think personally we should send more of our younger players there but there is the whole language issue.

if you guys want i can make a highlights reel for him? always got time to learn something new and should be a piss easy anyway
Be good if you could get the material to do it.

IMO challenge is to get a few longer stretches of play to show his talents rather than the standard YouTube which shows one great pass in isolation - as for most players its easy enough to put together a dozen great passes over a season into one highlights video !


Problem last season (as for most of Spurs youth) he didn't get enough game time to look outstanding enough to get a PL or La Ligua loan with 'guaranteed' playing time so glad that Almeria has given him the opportunity to show his skills. Choice now is to play in La Ligua or PL (including with Spurs), but suspect that he will have been seen more in Spain by La Ligua teams, so think that's where he will end up - unless AVB wants him in Spurs squad.

Ok update time, I have cut it down to just falque's highlights(20mins), taken from about a hour and a half of Almeria's highlights in matches he was involved in. It is clear why he has received this praise tbh and also clear that he was playing unfit at the end as he was rushed back at his injury and which explains why he didn't finish 90mins till the last matches. I got to do a lot more cutting.

Also it has been said by the guy who works at UD Almeria radio(clubs radio station) who i assume is ITK, that they have signed a wide man and Striker. When asked by a fan I rather keep Falque and Charles, he replied "the management has no choice and we don't own Falque and have little room(I take to try and get him)"

So it appears that he wont be a Almeria player next season and the club has announced the two signings as well

What's the update on the reel, can't wait to see it as I haven't seen anything of him at Almeria. Mighty kind of you to do it, I know what a bitch editing is.

It seems to me like the plan was to get him in the shop window and move him to a La Liga club this summer, but he's done so well that perhaps we have changed our minds. Hopefully he'll get some good game time in preseason and we can see how he fits in, we need to show our young players that when they have great loans (Falque, Townsend, Rose) they can come back and get a chance to progress.

Iago tweet

Esta noche toca ver el almeria...muchisima suerte a mis excompañeros en la vuelta a primera division!

Tonight we get to see the almeria ... very lucky with my former teammate in return to first division!

Doesn't sound if he's going back there - he's just interested to watch them as a fan

This is just screams as being an investment doesn't it. Never given a chance/time at the club. Buy cheap, loan out, sell at higher price.

not heard anymore on this
Just turned 24. Think we will sell him soon enough. Thought he might make it with us.
Last season he had a brilliant last season he has been injured and struggling imo to settle with their style of play(he likes to be on the ball and pass it and he isn't getting it)

Rayo are a mess they sold their best players and then instead of replacing them, they loaned a whole new team. He needs to be recalled sent on or released imo, if he does get released i expect him to sign for Villarreal

Wow, that goal was absolute amazing!
Looks like a double nutmeg after receiving the ball on the right, before knocking it past the keeper via the closest post.
