do you mean is he really a striker or a winger who scores goals? the question makes more sense that way.

i think somewhere in between really, but i really haven't seen that much of him. either way, as long as he keeps on scoring and looking dangerous he is more than welcome in the National team though.

For example, the goal he scored against Roma....he was hanging out closest to the goalie

Is a winger supposed to do that? I mean this guy was way towards the goal comapred to his teammates..

i don't know Pulsar, good attacking players do whatever they can to get into dangerous positions, regardless of what their role is on paper. i wouldn't blame him for backing himself against Roma's defence this season anyway.

i haven't seen much of Cagliari playing this season, but some things just become apparent from looking at the line-ups they select. Often when Suazo doesn't start all they seem to have is Langella and Esposito on the wings and Zola calling the tune.

none of them are really out and out target men or anything but sometimes they probably would take a position like that to benefit from the chances that the other players around them can create.

I just consider him as a right forward. Mauro Esposito can pretty much do it all; make runs up the flank like a right winger, or infiltrate the penalty box to cause problems there. He has a nack for scoring goals, and that comes from his incisive runs into the box. So basically Esposito is a right forward.

i think he is more of a withdrawn striker, yes he does make runs down the wing, but he also likes to get into the box behind the opposing defence

Andy's right. He plays just like a right-sided striker. If you're thinking of an old fashioned right winger in the mould of Gullit, Mancini or Semioli, then he doesn't play like that. He doesn't whip in crosses at will (well not that often anyway) and doesn't have the whole fancy footwork package normally associated with wingers (C. Ronaldo), but he does like to drift into the centre and offer a fresh option in attack. I think it's a classic case of a modern striker made to look really good by placing him on the side..

Cagliari play a wide tridente (unlike Roma who play a narrow one without any width). So Esposito is found out wide, but also found in the six yard box whenever the ball is on the left so he can score from a cross.

Barca have enough players. Id prefer Esposito to move to a team where he fits and where they need him. So this rules out Inter and Milan straight away... Juve dont really need him either. It would be nice to see Esposito move to a team like Roma :D

Unless Giuly is crap or leaves, Barca hardly need him unless they just want him for back-up. It would be nice to see the likes of Esposito and Miccoli in Spain, yet Esposito is only a rumour and I doubt he will be moving from Italy anyway. If a big 3 go for him, he will move to them, even if it would be a quite stupid move.
