Yesterday Football News reported that Dominik Furman had agreed to sign for Toulouse from Legia Warsaw. The fee for the deal is believed to be around €2.7 million, while the move for the 21-year-old is still subject to a medical. This signing is a statement of intent from Toulouse, who currently lie right in the middle of Ligue 1 in 10th place. This has now been officially confirmed by the club.
So, who is Dominik Furman and how can he help Toulouse climb into the top half of the league table? Furman is a young 21-year-old midfielder, who will sit in the centre of the park doing what all good midfielders do: breaking up play and then beginning Toulouse’s own attacks. Although he is not an out and out attacking player, Furman still managed 3 goals and 5 assists in his Legia Warsaw career, a decent number for a young player who is still finding his feet at the top level.
There are some doubts about whether the young man can handle the physicality of French football, but it should not be too much of a problem for the Pole. He stands at almost exactly 6ft tall, so he has the stature to deal with the game. In addition, he is still young and will continue to grow in size and experience, so he is very much a player for the future too. If handled correctly at Toulouse, he can mature into a very gifted midfield player.
