I've tried every Mertens cards this year and they all are amazing but this one is top tier. He is so fast and agile. Don't pay attention to his 41 strength, he feels more like a 65-70 strength, he is pretty hard to catch and he can fight. His 77 stamina won't bother at ST but maybe at CAM.
700k is a bargain and he is easy to link with Serie A players like Insigne Scream, Allan ou CR7. Honestly don't hesitate, just go for it. He finishes in all angles and scores a lot of goals in money time. In comparison with other players I've tried like CR7, Butragueno Prime or Best Mid, he has been way more clutch in big games for me.
I only played with him in Fut Champions and if Insigne Scream didn't screw up that many chances I would have been Elite 3. But still, Mertens scores in all big games and I finsihed Gold 1 (20-8).
