I played Keane for over 70 games now and I must say he really is excellent. I also played him in Fut Champions as well as Division 1 and he is an absolute beast. I personally play him in a 4222 with Werner, just because this is by far my most favorite formation. However, he will also do very well in a single striker formation, as this card just breaks any rules.
Keane feels really agile and easy to control and any close ball movements and dribblings will feel very smooth with him. Furthermore, he converts nearly all shots inside the box into a goal. Shots from Outside the box can be a bit more tricky but inside the box he is a deadly finisher. I would recommend to play him with a Hunter, as he (only) has 87 pace. The Hunter will boost him to nearly max pace and give a juicy boost to his shooting.
Also important to note is his 88 stamina. This means you can pretty much expect him to perform for 120 minutes, which is important for a card of his price caliber. To round this card off, he has a solid 4* weak foot and 4* skills with high/medium work rates, which is excellent.
His passing is decent.
In Addition, there are not that many alternatives for a striker in the BPL in that price range except maybe for Solskjaer, which I cannot recommend (slow and unagile). After that, all you are left with is either CR7 or Werner/Aubamenyang etc, so Keane is perfect for a medium budget. Personally i would say he is worth at least 600-700k. Also you have the nice side effect that he offers a green link to all bpl players.
The only 2 downsides I can mention is the fact that he is not super strong, with only 71 strength and a height of 175cm and that he is not particularly good in the air, so don't expect him to score with his head. But his strength is not really a problem, as he compensates with his speed and agility.
To summarize his most important features: He feels very fast and super agile, he has deadly finishing and will pretty much convert anything inside the box, he links very well and is not too expensive. So I definitely recommend you to try him out, especially if you have bpl players in your squad, as he will link very well. He just feels so smooth to play with and he makes the game seem really easy. He just has the perfect combination between speed, agility and finishing, that makes him one of the best cards in this game so far.
Fun Fact: He has better stats that 87 Dalglish, who is 2.5 times his price :)
