Lenny Nangis’ profile in 2011 (after starting new game, patch 12.2)

Lenny Nangis’ scouting report from Cagigao of Arsenal

Lenny Nangis’ profile aged 23 in the year 2018

Lenny Nangis’ career history until 2018

Lenny Nangis certainly has talent and the above profile aged 23 shows that. He still hasn’t reached his peak but playing first team football has aided his development. Just look at those physical attributes and the kid can dribble too. You can have this talent for £7.5 million making him a minor risk for those with cash, but maybe a little bit of a stretch for the smaller sides. Your only issue will be finding room to play Nangis so he reaches his full potential and develops as well as in Daniel’s game shown above.

Best buy rating: 8/10

    What speed! Could be the bargain buy of FM2012, might do even better if he had more games with his parent club instead of being loaned out

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2011

      I agree mate, he probably has more potential than shown. Certainly a must buy considering the price.

      • comment avatar diggy October 9, 2012

        for me at the age of 26, he is playing at man city and is one o the best wingers in the world

        • comment avatar Darren Smith October 9, 2012

          He has never hit that kind of level in my games but I guess it depends on what you class as the best. If its the fastest then he’ll always be up there…but in terms of full package he would take a hell of a lot of developing to be the best.

  • comment avatar Malhar Bhadbhade October 24, 2011

    oh.thats a high good as Sanogo!!! well, anyway, cant wait to see more players appear…the usual suspects..neymar, lukaku, sanogo, bababcar and see what they’re like in 2012.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2011

      I believe he is that good mate and can imagine him been tough to mark :)

  • comment avatar wahnsinn January 5, 2012

    I tell you, this guy is amazing! In my save he’s way better then on the picture above, in my opinion he’s way more useful and deadly in front of the goal then Fierro or Nyang, etc.
    I play him as a poacher, and on the team-instructions bar set him as target man (supply to feet)
    that’s how I get the best outta him!
    amazing player with unique speed ;)
    peace out

      Would love to see a screenshot of him in your game.

  • comment avatar Siggu January 8, 2012

    In terms of raw stats, Nangis didn’t become much better in my game than yours (At 2018 too)

    However, that blazing speed, surprising physical prowess and decent enough attacking stats mean that Nangis is an excellent player for top-tier clubs (Very underrated for the AI, though). He’s now my star player at Manchester City in my second season at the club, along with his striking partners Iker Muniain and the argentinian newgen Victor Hugo Ortiz Lopez (A fantastic target-man)

    While he started as a sub for Agüero, Nangis’s excellent performances and Agüero’s declining ones meant that it was time of using Nangis as a starter: In this season, he scored 28 goals in 31 league games, with 7.90 as his average rating

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 8, 2012

      Interesting to here that as Nangis seems too weak to make such an impact in the second season but great physical attributes can make up for a lot.

  • comment avatar Chris January 19, 2012

    This is stupid. In patch 12.1.1 they have pushed up the prices on all wonderkids. I thought the idea was to get cheap wonderkids for for a smaller club and turn them into a great player. With niang they want £18m whereas before it was £6.5m. With nangis they have rejected a £6m bid

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 19, 2012

      Unfortunately the same thing happens every year. FM always reevaluate their players and how much they go for, usually this means the best wonderkids been more expensive which I admit I find annoying too.

  • comment avatar denss March 13, 2012

    at 24 he beat henry’s record of international goal for france in my career first match in belgium he score 5 goal
    if you want to make a wonderfull kid of him he must play all the game(30match per saison)
    no creativity and attac full individual training off the ball

  • comment avatar denss March 13, 2012

    11 million euro in 48 month

  • comment avatar Junayd Hoque May 6, 2012

    What about M’baye Niang? does he reach full potiential

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 6, 2012

      It depends on the development and if you offer first team football…I feel the profile we have provided here shows him at close to his full development for the age we have him at…but a human could always get more as that profile is with the CPU’s management.

  • comment avatar rp May 27, 2012

    hy darren could you see bahebeck and ocampos both have quality and with the right manegement they could be big stars.
    As for nangis i think he needs to improve in passing,corners and crossing ãnd depending on people in penalty taking. But besides that i think the kid is a perfect player for the wings.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 27, 2012

      I’ve been asked about those two a lot but don’t have good enough future profiles to provide a report.

  • comment avatar rp May 27, 2012

    ok ty darren =)

  • comment avatar Adam May 28, 2012

    In my save his pace is 19 and his acceleration is 20!

  • comment avatar neutronstar44 June 1, 2012

    I played him on the left wing. Sold him to arsenal after 4 years for a cool 30m pounds.

  • comment avatar Iker Muniain August 3, 2012

    Darren I’m Ajax and I signed Sanogo but he is having trouble settling in. He said he wanted Nangis to keep him company. But I was looking at Sarabia because he’s unsettled, could I train his crossing to a good level for winger support

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 3, 2012

      I think so, to be fair even if you can’t he’s still do a job on the wings.

  • comment avatar Mark August 18, 2012


    For fun I started a game with Liverpool because of the challenge, little money pretty narrow bench..!! I baught Nangis, second season he was top scorer of the premier league. Jack Robinson is great also as a center back! The reason of Nangis his quality is hit dribbeling and speed! Great striker!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 18, 2012

      He does have the pace and dribbling ability to make a huge impact, especially if that suits your philosophy and tactic.

  • comment avatar Niall August 20, 2012

    Signed him on loan from Wolves for Hereford, 7 goals from 7 games so far to help our final promotion push!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 20, 2012

      He should eat it up in a side like Hereford, that blistering pace will be unstoppable.
