Oliver career history until 2022
This FM 2014 player profile of Oliver shows an absolute playmaker with magic in his DNA, the perfect pivot for your attacking tactics. While Oliver never really shone during his career in terms of average ratings, it is worth noting he went through many seasons without a proper first team place. The very fact his attributes have developed so well without constant first team football season in season out shows the kids raw talent. With attributes reaching 19 and above in technique, passing, flair and creativity its obvious this wonderkid can be lethal as a playmaker, linking defense to midfield and midfield to attack.
A minor worry may be his physical attributes which are low but those can be worked on in training and with proper human management I think Oliver could even be worth the £20.5 million release clause, if you are willing to invest your time and faith.
Best buy rating: 9/10
