He arrives at Mestalla full of ambition and the desire to become the focal point in the attack of Gennaro Gattusos team.
"I know that Valencia FC is a major team and this is a great, appealing challenge for me. Ive come here because football is followed with passion in Valencia, driving players like me to give everything on the pitch. This energy is contagious. You land hoping to give back to the people who have shown me such affection before I had even arrived here. Alongside my teammates, I want to pay them back with my efforts, hard work and good results. Human beings are creatures of energy and feelings; something drew me here, not just the affection shown by the Club and the fans. I am delighted to form part of the history of this Club and hopefully we will progress and achieve great things."
