In this years Fifa the coveted pace+strength+height trio in a central defensive mid role has been semi rare.
The fact that this card links with french players is going to drive the price a bit as well considering he will link with the OP french attackers, and also his teammates are spurs, Notably Mr Sonaldo.
- PACE: feels good running back into defense to help stop counters. Played him next to Kante as a CDM duo and he gets the job done if you get aggressive with Kante and you opponent gets by.
- Strength: Will throw any winger/CAM to the ground with ease.
- Height/Arial Ability: Will win the majority of headers while defending. Hes a must if you play smaller central players in your side.
- Links: Obviously he links into any PL side, add in that you can use him to bridge french attackers into the OP PL defensive players (aurier baily ake ect) while keeping the attack cheap and french is awesome.
- Weak Foot: his shooting isnt bad for a CDM, if shot on his strong foot at the very least you can cause your opponent a scare and force rebounds or a corner. The only con here is that he has to be spoon fed these shots onto his strong foot to be effective.
- Price?: his price could be a con. I have struggled to find a CDM with his pace+strength+height combo that has as many link opportunities, so the price isnt an issue for me this late into the year. at <80k on ps4 it seems like a fair value, but their are cheaper less OP options.
