This guy surely has a very bright future. I've been following him this season a lot, and i am completely impressed by his qualities, he's an ultimate box to box player, defensively good, good and calm in possession, good passer, and roams a lot into the box. I am sure he'll play for the very best clubs, and i want to make some suggestions. This set makes him too static in some way i think.
First of all, his attack and aggression are underrated. As i said, he's very good all round player, but very attacking minded, and no way his def is higher than att. He's very, very good in giving the offensive support, he can position himself in the box really good, and he score some goals. I think his attack should go up to 77
and defence can stay on the current level.
Aggression too, that's what i meant when i said this set makes him too deep lying. Basically with these stats, he's kind of deep lying playmaker with low aggression, solid passing and solid defensive qualities. 71 is WAAAY too low. He's surely for yellows there. He's just always in the box. Kinda would put him on pair with Parolo and Mautidi there, they are on 85, but he would be fine with 82 83
Also, the free roaming card.https://youtu.be/-M5o1SkGQdM?t=30shttps://youtu.be/Au7otkxL8ro?t=35shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=venmxO7VytMhttps://youtu.be/0Ncn_LcIcko?t=4m21shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkGGw6Iy4Akhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFwePpH4IGQ
The other thing he's brilliant in is headers. But he's really good, and very good in finding the net after corners and set pieces and open play crosses (Altough he wasn't lucky against Sevilla, the first link). https://youtu.be/0Ncn_LcIcko?t=2m22shttps://youtu.be/2FH7FldWyQY?t=2m19shttps://youtu.be/V1Efzobam44?t=1m3shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFoR2U2zevshttps://youtu.be/cEevb2iy_A4?t=2m23s
He's really, really good in headers, surely for yellows. He's actually for me potentially one of the best goal scoring mids in future, because his positioning sense and headers, + shooting (i'll write about that later) are really top notch. Something about 83
for headers would really be fair. He also can jump quite high. He's not CR7, but considering his height which isn't that great, surely can hit the low yellows, he's a great athlete, can jump, run and hustle really good.
The other stats i'd like to discuss is his shooting. He's able to score with his feet too, and has really proper shot from the mid/short ranges.https://youtu.be/cEevb2iy_A4?t=1m52shttps://youtu.be/cEevb2iy_A4?t=4m6shttps://youtu.be/cEevb2iy_A4?t=5m6s
Very nice decision not to run into the 6 yard box but to be an option for a cutback pass, and good finish.https://youtu.be/95dPpH-0anE?t=28s
I would put his both SA and ST on higher greens. He's really good finisher, quite oftenly hits the target from the solid ranges, and scores lot of goals (His goalscoring record in Lyon isn't that big, but don't forget he played a lot of games as a RB, which is a tragedy for me, it just limits his qualities)
His balance is also underrated. Obviously this video can tell you everything https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7fQJ9y ... be&t=6m11s
I think his passing stats are the only properly rated stats.
He has no problem with his first touch, can't say he's world class, but surely low yellows would be fine. About DA, it's ok maybe can go 1 or 2 points up, his close control is fine, and he's not relied so much on just close control, he mostly uses his long legs and pace in his through the middle runs.
So, *passing Free Roaming and box to box surely should be added. I think this guy is pure gold, i think he'll be world class. Reminds me on Andre Gomes in some way, but more physicall, less technicall though, also a better player in the box and defensively.
