Everton signing Denis Stracqualursi is eager to be the latest Argentine to light up the Premier League.

Stracqualursi is looking to make the step up having been the top scorer for Tigres in the Argentinian top flight last season.

The striker, 24 this month, knows the English game is vastly different to what he is used to in South America but has chosen the perfect role model to learn from.

"I have watched a lot of English football on television," he said.

"I have seen the way the likes of Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez have settled in and adapted to English football.

"Tevez, as a forward, I have watched very closely. I saw the way he went about the task at West Ham and the two Manchester clubs and I would like to think I can copy that model.

"He is an icon at all those clubs. It is all about dying for the shirt, sweating for the club, trying really hard to settle in and being ready physically.

"Then I have to prove myself to the manager, my team-mates and supporters that I can do it at this level in England."
