If you like playing players with a body type and height like Kante, this is the cheaper and best option you can go for.
I tried him as an offensive CDM and as a CAM too and he works perfectly for me, as he is also really fun to use.
I've also tried out Kante, Renato Sanches IF etc and I think this card is roughly on the same level as they are .
The crucial stats for me, was his perfect workrates, his pace and agility that also fits him to the meta if this is important for you, but also very important for me the 4*,4* combo.
If you complete the sbc, you will also get tradeable packs back, so the sbc will cost you max. 50K!
And if you don't enjoy him just put him into an sbc and you'll have almost no loss with him, just try him out!!
-Height/strength if you play him as a cdm or if you prefer stronger body types
