End of last season was benched 5 games on the bounce, then started one, got battered 7-0 and then was back to being benched for the final three. That was the end of his most recent season.

Fantastic saints, fantastic...

From what I can gather he has been scouted by a lot of the top teams over the last few seasons.

Obviously a player on their radar just not good enough to come in and play straight away for them.

He wants to leave Torino hence the cheap price - if he only costs 7mil euro then its a low risk high reward signing.

Also there better well be someone else coming in somewhere from the rest of the cash.

Report last year - scouting for Sporting - google translate into English 

Offensive Moment able to play both the central on the right and the central in the system of 3 centrals of Torino, Lyanco reveals itself as one of the references of the team in construction essentially for its passing ability (short and medium distance) and vision of game, associating well with the midfielders and runner colleagues, in a role often of central organizer. Although it is also able to speed up a progression with the ball (it reveals a good read of the opponents' body orientation to hit them if necessary), it is a feature that is not used very often, essentially breaking lines through the pass.

Defensive Moment The Torino model protects you from your physical profile (some lack of acceleration capacity and agility that is often noticed in the rotation of the body to lower), and it acts as a central midfielder in higher difficulty games (block lower = less depth to cover) and center on the right side, accompanied by a faster center center covering space in the back in games where the block plays higher.

Very capable in defensive air play and in command of the defensive line (in both positions, with supports normally always correct), he compensates for some of the aforementioned physical handicap with a good anticipation capacity in individual duels, which he often wins by imposing his bearing and impetuosity. Sporting CP The characteristics of the Serb-Brazilian central defender, 23 years old and 1.87m, can make him both a serious option in the dispute for the place with Eduardo Quaresma on the right side, as well as a valid alternative to Coates in the center, thus ensuring competitiveness in this sector . All this without detracting from the main guideline that brought us to Lyanco: the model.

Think I'll reserve judgment until I see him in a Saints shirt. Not bothered by what other teams fans think of him. Remember Celtic fans being happy to see us take Armstrong off their hands, same with KWP and Spurs fans. Hopefully he'll improve our defence

Lyon fans slated Lovren and thought they’d mugged us off and that turned out alright. OK, he was a cock but played well and we made a profit on him. Actually seems a similar kind of deal to the Lovren one. Hopefully this leaves enough money to get the Everton kid and continue Crockers assembly of the team of the 20’s….

Agree with this too. Coufal cost £5m, there are bargains to be had around Europe.

You can even argue what we have said about Vestergaard too. I’m sure LCFC fans don’t care.

It’s a signing we need to get right though so if he doesn’t hit the ground running after 10 games or so I worry with a Bednarek/Salisu partnership.

Hmmm, not exactly an inspiring signing. This is arguably the most pivotal signing of our season, we’ve got to get it right.

Guess we’ll see how it pans out, but immediate thoughts are it seems the budget option.

Sounds like the perfect centre half 🙂

We should have a groovy side in the Championship next season.  
preparations are underway it seems.

we just can’t compete both on the pitch and off it.

almost as depressing as the Branfoot,Poortvliet eras.

it's bound to be a budget option. We live on a  tight budget, that's the sort of club we are. That's why it's an amazing achievement to have stayed in the top flight as long as we have. We should celebrate our achievement, not moan about our limitations

He looks very technical, pacey and has an eye for a pass like Vestergaard did.

He is way more pacey than Jannick which is a vast improvement.

Can he defend though? Call me old fashioned, but as a centre back (particularly in Ralph’s kamikaze system), being able to actually defend is rather important.
