Glovers boss Gary Johnson believes that Argentinian striker/winger Luciano Alvares is getting closer to full fitness and closer to what he would hope to get out of him if he is to consider adding him to his squad for the 2005-06 season.
Luciano has been helping Gary as an interpreter for his countryman Pablo Bastianini but Gary said he is now proving his worth in other areas now, explaining: "Luciano Alvares has been fantastic as far as being around. But he's also a good player in his own right. He will prove himself when he gets a bit of fitness, which he is. His situation is a lot less complicated but he needs to get fit so he can show us what he is doing. He'll be playing at Fulham and he'll be playing against Swansea (Reserves match on August 17th) in midweek. He is close now - Luciano Alvares - remember that name!"
Part of the reason why Luciano's situation may be less complicated is that his last reported club was Inter Turku who play in the First Division in Finland and the player appears to be a free agent. Thus should Gary decide to sign the Argentine striker, he would be swapping paperwork with the Finnish FA and would therefore not have to deal with the complexities of the Argentine legal system.
