Nathan ake is a very solid CB within the price that they are asking for him, he has a lot of pros and small amount of cons and is the perfect cb partner ship with for example van dijk, Joe Gomez, etc, for me he has the similarities to variance, he is agile and can quickly get a turnover, for me he has the ability to be on both ends of the field cuz of his ability to head the ball well.
- he has a low stamina for a cb, hard to get something out of him if it goes to extra time in WL or the last 10-15 min of the game.
- not very aggressive but more o a passive player that reads his opponents and then strike something I don't like but is useful if you have it hard understanding the defensive system of this Fifa.
Solid player that will get the job done if you want a dutch link to your backline (extra chem w/dumfries/haps at fullback with Promes in midfield), or just a quick and cheap CB to keep up in Rivals. Pace is usually not an issue as long as you have shadow or anchor. Good passer of the ball never had issues when getting pressed. One glaring issue was heading. Consistently beaten by offensive players from corners and tends to have a hard time pushing stronger players off the ball. All in all 7/10 player and definitely worth the purchase if you are a lower div player or just starting your team in FUT 21.
-Composure on the ball
-Passing is fairly decent for a 79 CB
-Height (only 5'11 has decent jumping but gets beat in the air by taller players/players with good heading stats often from set pieces)
-Heading ability both offensively and defensively
-Positioning (not a glaring issue, but tends to be out of place sometimes in defence and is not quick enough to recover easily like most quick meta CBs)
