    Safe to say I know nothing about him! According to transfermarkt, he's a left winger who can also play as a CAM and a right winger.

    5 goals and 3 assists in 10 appearances according to whoscored, with an average rating of 7.33 which is quite good and some way better than the rest of his teammates. 3 Man of the Match awards too. Sounds pretty decent when he's playing in a side that's currently 11th out of 18 teams.

    Just broke into the Japan National side and starred in their 4-3 win over Uruguay

    Don't know anything about him but it does look promising that a lot of the players we're getting linked with are in the positions we need, e.g. forwards and midfielders

    Benfica were in talks with him a while ago and their fans seemed pretty keen to sign him

    I love the far-eastern players, always up for giving it their all every game....110%ers.

    At 5' 4" though I think he could find it real tough in the PL as a regular.

    Doing the standard YouTube scouting he does look like he’d fit in well. Can go past a player, play defence splitting passes, score from range and very cool in the box.

    The Japanese Messi! I'm all for it, he could even displace the seemingly undroppable Costa!

    Looking at you tube and I know this isn't or shouldn't be a barometer for judging players ability I'd be very happy if he came in.

    10 goals and 10 assists in 29 games last season in the Portuguese Prem. For a very poor side, that's an excellent return.

    They beat S.Lisbon 4-2 recently - He scored 2 and set the other 2 up!

    The thing thats bugging me is this would be another right footer. Meaning Costa would still be our only left footed forward. The only forward we have he looks like he might be a replacement for is Jota. (Rightfooted left winger, with similar talents)

    Side note.. The name of the club is almost identical to the dutch word for Wallet...

    Have seen him 3/4 times and he has been excellent each time.

    Once was against Sporting Lisbon and he scored at least one and another for Japan where he was the standout player.

    To add, was game mentioned above when they won 4-2, was superb.

    Tiny but busy player, great shot and clever with his movement.

    Not sure he's the January addition to keep us up but I'd be delighted with him as a long-term signing.

    Would be one of the attacking midfield positions, so someone would be on their way out surely!

    I agree. He is the Japanese Dave Edwards.

    On the YouTube video (which admittedly is all I have seen of him), he looks very comfortable using his left foot. A couple of excellent left footed finishes in there.

    Surely if Fosun are wanting to market Wolves to the malleable Chinese audience, getting a Japanese player as one of our main attacking players isn’t the best idea from a marketing point of view..? Or am I overthinking this

    On a side note 77 rated on fifa is about basic/decent premier league level

    I think the main objective should be to get to the 40pt mark first! Walk before you can run etc, if Nakajima can help us to do that then great.

    Rated 2 points higher than costa, cav and traore and 1 point lower than Jota.

    I do think we should be aiming to hit 40 points but I also think that 30 will be the target to stay up this season.

    Rather €20M for Nakajima than Origi. Get him in.
