Hello i´m Koermix from Germany so i hope you´ll understand my english.
I used steven n´zonzi for one weekend league in a very high rated team (ft. 90 Sanchez,bale,ramos,chiellini etc) because i wasted some coins and i wasn´t able to buy Kante. And i really started to like my new CDM. His strength is amazing and he´s in my opinion the best cheap CDM in the game. I also used Bakayoko but i don´t like him because of his work rates. N´zonzi got a high defense work rate and he´s a Machine. Try him and you´ll see!!! i know his pace looks horrible but the momentum makes him fast :D
Defense work rate
easy to link (french)
Dangerous at corner kicks
I'll explain it fast: I have a LaLiga squad with Casemiro as the usual CDM, but I play N'Zonzi often in order to rest him. He feels so much fast than his stats, and his defending and physicality are excellent. This means that he intercepts a lot of balls and wins almost all headers, and from time to time he scores some goals, obviously headers but despite his 66 long shots he has made some like this. It's the perfect CDM substitute if you want something cheap.
- Perfect physicality and 190cm
- Wins 99/100 headers
- Pace not as bad as it seems
- Bad shooting in general, especially long shots
- Could be better on passing, but that's not really crucial as he doesn't lose many balls for his position
