Pione Sisto is another emerging talent that has set the big teams across Europe into a frenzy of interest including ourselves, and rightly so with top performances over the last 2 seasons in domestic and European competition he has established himself as a vital part of FC Midtjylland’s team. Sisto talents have also been noticed on the international stage, working his way up through the Danish youth teams to earn a spot in Denmark’s first team.
Sisto is a direct player with a very attacking mentality. Always active he runs at defences with confidence, pace, close control and agility. With a good eye for a pass and space awareness Sisto has been a vital part of a lot of goals and dangerous attacks this season. He likes to cut inside to create space so he can shoot from distance. Being a team player he will track back to help out. This very talented lad has a great determination and work rate about him, always eager to impress.
Pione Sisto is someone I have wanted at West Ham for a while now. With the only issue from our scouting team being his ability to cope with the physicality of the premier league but for me this season it’s clear to see strength is an area he has worked on, adding to his already very promising dribbling skills. At 20 he is a massive prospect and will without a doubt end up playing at the highest level for a top team.
