Van Wolfswinkel’s career history until 2017

This FM13 profile of Ricky Van Wolfswinkel shows a top-drawer striker, he may not have great pace or dribbling ability but he is a perfect poacher and a natural goalscorer, this is proven by the future stats above, 80 goals in just 127 is a brilliant return, it may only be the Portuguese league, but I believe he can still score in the ‘top’ leagues. A great striker and for just £8m you cannot go wrong with him. I think he easily deserves an 8.5.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

    I bought him in two different games/saves. One with ac milan, for the bench, but after a while, he was a starter.
    The other, with arsenal, he was a starter after a few games.
    Scored an average of 20’ish with each. It’s a player i always go for… if i need a new striker, of course.
    Since he scores many goals in real life too, i’ve been following his short carrer and got my attention. Last year he scored more then 20 on sporting lisbon. Funny that his real life average is exactly the same has mine, ingame.
    It’s rare to get a bad dutch player, normally they are all interesting.
    Cheers. AK
