The Werder Bremen striker has been sensational in recent weeks.
Di Santo is many things as a striker. Hard working, an excellent hold up man and a good foil for a pacy strike partner - but a lethal goal-scorer he has never been.
However his excellent attributes have seen him play for the Argentina national team and of course attracted Chelsea to sign him from Audax Italiano of Chile in 2008.
Despite being dubbed the ‘next Hernan Crespo’ it never happened at Chelsea for the youngster. But the 24-year-old found his place at Wigan - which proved the stepping stone to a Bundesliga move to Werder Bremen.
This season he has truly flourished. The former Chelsea youngster and goal-shy Wigan front-man scored again today, as Werder Bremen defeated SC Freiburg 1-0. It was his sixth goal in his seventh game since returning from a winter break and his 12th in 18 appearances in Germany this season.
Were it not for an injury in November, he would likely have scored a lot more.
A reminder to the large number of Chelsea players who have been loaned out in recent times that the grass can certainly be greener on the other side.
