To be honest that sounds like Alves in real life (Im a middlesbrough fan, before anyone tries to slate me).
A suggestion, would maybe use Alves as a holding striker, and play with either Tuncay or Mido ahead of him. Alves is a very quiet player, however will produce magic at times. He can be useful for Set-Pieces.
But yeh, I would suggest playing Alves alongside either;
Tuncay for his pace, or Mido for his finishing ability.
