FC Porto v Chelsea FC - UEFA Champions League

After A Striker And Defender, Hull City Are Targeting A Midfielder Now: Can He Deliver?

Hull City’s new boss is wasting no time to get his new team up and running. After a convincing win over Swansea City in the FA Cup, which was Marco Silva’s first game in charge, the Portuguese has already made multiple moves in the transfer market.

After increasing reports about Everton’s exiled striker Oumar Niasse coming to Hull on a loan for the rest of the season, it is now FC Porto midfielder Evandro Goebel who is wanted by Silva in January. They both previously worked at Estoril and Silva is confident they could rework the magic once again at Hull City.

Although the Brazilian-born attacking midfielder isn’t quite a regular in the FC Porto side currently, he has previously been glorious for Silva, helping Estoril qualify for the Europa League. During his stint at Estoril, he scored 14 goals in 53 games after joining from Red Star Belgrade, where he had netted 13 goals in 35 games.

The lack of game time at Porto will definitely play a huge factor in securing the deal. It is now evident that Silva knows how to get the best out of him and given his decent experience at European level, he could definitely be a level up. The 30-year-old was part of the Brazil side that won the 2005 World Youth Championship in Holland.

Goebel has come up through the ranks of a host of Brazilian clubs like Atlético-PR, Goiás EC, Palmeiras, Desp. Brasil, EC Vitória, Figueirense FC, before he joined Serbian side Red Star Belgrade on loan in 2010-11. He moved to Estoril in 2013-14 on a free transfer and then joined FC Porto in 2014.

Given his skillset, he could be a valuable addition to the Hull side. Although midfield isn’t the area Hull are really struggling at the moment, there is always scope for improvement. And Marco Silva’s approach seems like he wants a potential option in every position. After bidding for Niasse, who is a striker and Goebel, who is a midfielder, Silva has also tabled a bid for Olympiacos right back, Omar Elabdellaoui.

Playing alongside the likes of Robert Snodgrass, Tom Huddlestone, Jake Livermore and others, Goebel is sure to flourish at Hull. Given the lack of depth in the squad, Hull have often been seen playing its midfielders deep to support a five-man defence in crucial or big games. Having an option like Goebel in the attacking third, who can play both in the midfield and also on the wings, will be a huge boost for them.
