I never got into the Bakayoko hype, people shouting about his average stats for some reason at the start of Fifa (no one using him now, do they!) This might of been because I packed an un-tradeable Kante very early on in the game but regardless of all that hype, lets talk now. Can, is the man! Great as CDM, he is just an all round reliable player now much like the Kante un-tradeable situation, I did pack IF Can in a Two Rare Gold Player upgrades (if you aren't doing them it's your lose, such great players to be hand from Gold Upgrade) so he is untradeable so lets ignore the 70k price tag.
Very well rounded
German Connection into CB's (Boateng, Hummels?)
As a CDM, nothing.
Play him at CAM and his stats aren't going to shine and it will feel like you have a Silver on the pitch.
I use Emre Can 82 as CDM in 4-1-2-1-2 (2) (paid around 100k, xbox). My squad is worth around 1kk coins+Harry Kane 93. The reason, why i bought this card was an intention of replacing Bakayoko. Frenchman is a great defensive player, with great physicality, but his passes are very poor. I hoped, Can will be as good as Bakayoko in def. obligations and in addition i won't lose the ball through stupid passes. Having played around 50 games (full fut champions(G1 each week) and some squd battles) i can say, that he is OK. His pace and strength are very decent for this position, wins a lot of headers (at least with anchor chemistry), interceptions and tackles are fine, but still a little worse than Bakayoko's. On the other hand passes look better, the game is firmer, bcs of less mistakes. All in all if you have some money left and you are also tired as i were with (sometimes) dumb passes of Bakayoko for a cost of a little worse def. game, Can is waiting for you. I know, that Can costs as much as Kante, but i prefer to have strong, quite tall CDM, winning shoulder to shoulder fight, buy him. Altough, i still think he is not worth 100k, maybe 65-75. And remember, if u have more money to spend on CDM(about 250k) buy Fernandinho if .
Pls remember, - using ANCHOR.
- Good defensive plays - certain tackles
- Decent marking
- Wins a lot of headers
- Passing is fine
- Enough pace
- Not worth the price at all
- Bakayoko is still better in defensive plays
- Workrates - i prefer M/H over H/H on CDM
