I remember using Politano's gold card in the very start of this FUT. I enjoyed how he moved with the ball, but his gold card lacked the key stats of a winger. This upgrade gave him exactly what his card needed to shine.
I'm using him mostly as a super sub, and he is pretty much the best sub I have. His pace, agility, shooting, passing with a 4* Combo make him a great player to cover both RW and CAM.
His phisical stats are low, however he doesnt feel that squishy holding the ball, a high balance will help him running against defenders.
As an Italian right winger, he may be hard to link, speacially on hybrid squads, since Internazionale, and Calcio A, dont have a decent RB and/or CM with a strong link with him. You will run short with options such as Insigne/Allan, Mertens/Nainggolan or an Icon Pirlo.
As starter, his stamina is certainly a plus, since he can last an entire match.\
Similar players: Ousmane Dembele - Politano is more "technical" while keeping pace and dribbling.
Dybala - As CAM, Politano can be as technical as Dybala, but pacey and a little less predictable with his 4* combo.
Positioning/Makes good runs
Defending (He is not expected to shine here, anyway)
Few options to link/Hard to fit in a Hybrid squad
