Picture of the 1.79 m (5 ft 10.5 in) tall Colombian forward of Atalanta B.C.

It would have been ironic when you're nicknamed the Colombian Ronaldo but didn't face any weight issues. Our forward, who is compared to the Brazilian legend had his fair share of trouble with the scales, but he has put everything behind him and is now on target to achieving success with Serie A side Atalanta. He is one of those South American players that headed to Europe early in their career. Having moved to Italy from Deportivo Cali, his premier European club Udinese were left a bit disappointed, or should we say got impatient with his development, which is why his five-year stay with the club saw him make multiple loan moves. He spent time away, the first two years of his European stint to be precise, with the newly promoted Granada in Spain's La Liga for a year. He spent the next year with Lecce before returning to Udinese for the 2012-13 campaign. He'd spend another season with the Udine based club before being loaned out to Sampdoria in 2015. He spent a couple of seasons with them and then transferred to Sevilla, which also saw him complete a quick loan spell with Fiorentina in 2019. He has finally settled in the Bergamo based club at the end of the 2019 season. We can only hope that he finds his feet there. As a victim of having had a nomadic journey very early in his career, our striker hasn't been able to develop into the true talent that he could have been. Nonetheless, we wish this Colombian international gets to show the world what he's truly capable of.
