Here is one of FM’s best wonderkids, but he comes at a price. His price tag may be massive but it willdecrease over the years. He can play either as an AMC or on the left wing and he is deadly in both positions. His flair, dribbling, quickness, off the ball, technique and passing make him a brilliant attacking threat and this is shown with the goals and assists he has provided for Roma. He may not be worth £58m but if he is available for a lot less he would be a perfect buy.

Best buy rating: 8/10

    A wonderful player and real threat from many midfield roles…just a shame about the price tag I guess. I doesn’t help that he just made the move to Roma.

      Yeah, if it weren’t for his ridiculous price tag I would have gave him a higher rating. He is very versatile and one of my favourite players

  • comment avatar Ferdie September 5, 2012

    Its such a shame that he’s rarely used by the AI at the start, knocking a few percent off of his potential before you’re able to afford him.

      On my save he played almost every match in the first season, so I wouldn’t say that. But he could develop much better than the screenshots

  • comment avatar Connor September 6, 2012

    Does he play best as an inside forward? As i’m looking for inside forwards and i’m finding it hard to find quality players for the position.

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton September 6, 2012

      I don’t know what role is hisbest, but he could be good as a IF. Other players that I would recommend for the role are: Willian, Douglas Costa and Weiss.

        Ok thanks for the help.

  • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah September 14, 2012

    He is an excellent player, he works from what I have seen brilliantly as an IF, his price tag however though is just too much at the start of the game.

    What is the skin ?

  • comment avatar Gigi Buffon October 31, 2012

    Tapped him up, then Roma offered him for 4.5mln 8 months into the first season
