Nicolas Nkoulou’s career history until 2021
Physical ability can be the difference between a good footballer and a world class footballer. Nkoulou has it in abundance and a lot of potential making this FM 2011 wonderkid a must buy. Nkoulou can be played as a defender or midfielder, but is best suited to a ball winning role just behind the CM line. I would recommend training the 20 year old as a central defender because his speed and passing ability would make him unstoppable. Not only does Nkoulou have the ability to stop forwards, he could play the ball out from defence and make that all important link to midfield. All this for £8 million, total bargain!
Best buy rating: 9/10
