This FM 2012 player profile of Gael Kakuta shows the wonderkids true talent. Kakuta makes massive improvements and turns into a real danger man with excellent dribbling, flair, technique and pace. The £23.5 million price tag is too much but wait a few seasons and the 20 year old will be available at a knock down rate. Either way Kakuta grows up to be one of the best playmakers in FM 2012.

Best buy rating: 7.5/10

    This guy plays well as a centre forward in a Trequarista role using this tactic:

    and, well, your Stoke set piece emulation, darren. (Thank you for these, btw.)

    Though I mostly use Kakuta as a sub for Mata who also plays very well in the same set-up.

    Backed by Asamoah and Meireles’ drive and Lampard’s distrubution from deep, I have created a veritable “Beautiful Football” machine.

    Also, I have Milan Lalkovic, Jesé and Lucas Piazon at Chelsea, could you tell me if they get good enough? Kinda looking to cut down on the wage bill.

      He does seem very good and progresses really well. I personally wouldn’t suggest investing too much effort in those three players mentioned as I haven’t seen them achieve anything nor reach an acceptable standard.
