This FM 2014 player profile of Leo shows a well rounded striker more than capable as false nine at any level. In my test save Leo showed ability in many areas, not really excelling in any but still a very handy forward. He can finish from close range or long distance, craft his own chances with good flair and make chances with technique and creativity. His physical attributes as just as varied with good speed, strength and reasonable jumping reach. As for role its a toss up between complete forward and false nine.
I believe he can develop beyond the screenshots above, but see him more as a striker to play for the team as opposed to banging home 25 plus a season. £22 million is too much, but if you find the Spaniard for less than £15 million he’s definitely worth a look.
