Going to be difficult for him to adapt to the pace of the league. He’s a turtle

He's an odd player to watch.

If the system suits him, he could be a good signing for anyone. Betis fans generally have positive opinions of him but his second season there has been hit with a big injury which may be a concern for Leicester fans. On paper, he needs some legs with him as he moves like a tank but more importantly if the system suits him and gives him adequate protection, you'll get rewards in his performances. The biggest criticism he perhaps got at Betis was more due to the system not being foolproof, holes and gaps appearing due to inadequate pressing or poor work defensively further up the pitch which was the case at times under Setien and Rubi and it left Carvalho isolated to pick up the pieces which doesn't suit his game at all. The bottom line is that if you protect him and have a system that suits his strengths of possession and build-up play, he should be a good signing.
