    Calling this guy the new Lewandowski after scoring 7 goals is like calling Gary Mackay Steven the new Jacques Cousteau.

    Hope we get him and he turns out to be class, but let's not get into the habit of comparing young players with potential to GOAT-level players.

    There definitely quite a large element of doubt.

    Hopefully get this deal over the line and then bring in a more experienced striker on loan.

    'You're buying a foundation for a very good striker. He's not as good as Edouard, which shouldn't surprise anyone given his transfer fee. His main strengths atm are playing the offside line and mentality. He's very fast, strong, has a good balance, times his runs well. Defenders in Ekstraklasa are mostly on strong and slow side, which probably makes this type of job easier, but Klimala also had target man duties due to playing as a lone striker, and did his job well when having to battle people bigger than him. Made a huge progress in last few months when it comes to mentality (always focused, relentless even when things don't go his way), and pitch awareness. Next big step to make would probably be improving his finishing, especially in 1v1 situations.

    He has made his share of typical young players mistakes when he was 18-19, learned from them, and is now a professional type, who looks to improve at every situation, takes feedback well, and takes care of his body like he should. Our last coach even said that Patryk reacts better to coach being demanding than being praised (paraphrased), and taught him to not be satisfied with JUST good performance. So you're getting a hungry young player, willing to learn, who doesn't have to be coddled by coaching staff.

    There's a rule starting from this season of Ekstraklasa, to have one U22 player on the pitch at any time. For Jagiellonia it was mostly Klimala, but don't think that he wasn't playing on merit. Before this season, Jagiellonia set their transfer record by getting a Serbian striker, Ongjen Mudrinski, who had a fantastic season in Serbian league. He was supposed to be our main goalscorer, and Klimala benched him fair and square. He has a 4m release clause, which will be another Jagiellonia transfer record being beaten, but if not for the release clause, I don't think the club would let him go for only 4m. If he'd keep his form, I could easily see a lower club from top5 leagues paying 5-6m for him in July.'


    More in-depth analysis from a Jagiellonia supporter off Reddit..

    Looks fast and a good finisher but not anything special to be honest.

    Sounds like he maybe thought he was this young hotshot. Now he's knuckled down and been looking good..

    The Huns won't be playing a high line and pushing right up as if it's Morgan again with this boy, that's for sure..

    Sounds a wee bit like a Griffiths type rather than Edouard or Dembele.

    The defending for all the goals he’s scored has been horrible, the Polish league is dogshit and he hadn’t even done that well in it. Not much youth international experience, no European experience.

    If we get him I obviously hope he does well, but if we’re actually spending 4 million on him it’s mind blowing, so many opportunities to buy proven players for similar fees and we’ve penny pinched.

    Lennon has a horrible track record for signing strikers since Hooper too. This one is worrying.

    Serie A Genoa bid for him. Copenhagen who we face in the knockouts want him. We want him. There'll no doubt be other's..

    Former player's of ours and Poles who've seen him more, rate him. He's looked at as the next striker to make it big from there..

    He looks like he has a few qualities that we could use..

    Let's no right him off before the youngster is even in the door..

    I like the look of the little we've seen of him..

    The standard he's played at isn't high but in the videos I've seen he looks lively, can finish and seems to make clever, bended runs to play on the shoulder and stay onside.

    I'm willing to give the guy a chance.

    On a wider point we do need more experience throughout the team though.

    Aye the next striker should now be a more experienced one now that we've got another young boy in...although Klimala won't be a project by any means..

    Lenny did make that point the other day as well to be fair in general..
