Fulham boss Chris Coleman feels Vincenzo Montella will be a big hit in the Premiership.
The forward signed a loan deal from Roma earlier in the month and he got his Craven Cottage career up and running with a brace in Fulham's 4-3 win over Leicester in the FA Cup on Wednesday and Coleman feels the display is a taster for more to come.
"He is not match fit, not 90-minute match fit for the Premiership," Coleman told Sky Sports News.
"Vincenzo knows that and he knows he is in good company with Heidar Helguson and Brian McBride.
"In the box he is terrific, there's none better than him at finishing.
"Looking at his record in Italy, which is the toughest league in terms of scoring goals, he has scored one in two so he is a quality player."
