Nicolas Nkoulou career history until 2018
This FM 2015 player profile of Nicolas Nkoulou shows an instant fix for defence and good utility man the likes of Barcelona will track down. In my test save Nkoulou missed out on a good amount of first team Football, hence his under par development but he starts the game with excellent ability and can grow to be one of the best defenders in the game. A little old considering our usual profiles, but this lad needs a mention. Plenty of you will need a quick fix with the top teams and end up paying through the nose when you can get this guy for £8 million.
Those mental attributes can rival most when developed and his defensive attributes can easily exceed 15 when trained correctly. You could also deploy Nkoulou just in front of the defence as an anchor man or half back, so you are getting a lot for you money.
