The Yellow Submarine have turned their attention to Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato to strengthen the offensive firepower.

The former AC Milan striker is a preferred choice for Marcelino García Toral according to Diario AS. Pato’s agility and pace skills are of Marcelino’s liking. Plus, Pato’s experience at the San Siro, with over 150 appearances more Milan make Alexandre a decent option to reinforce the attack.

Pato is the type of player that Villarreal has been laying the odds on as of lately, after signing Ruiz, Cheryshev. We’re talking about players that have arrived with a low profile, and whom the club has manager to relaunch they’re careers, and so, Marcelino is willing to give Pato a chance and help him get his career back on track.
