Despite some big exits from Serie A this summer (CR7 and Lukaku), I have always been drawn towards building a Serie A based FUT squad. After opening some relatively decent 'Welcome Back' packs, I found myself with enough to build the squad linked. 5-2-1-2 suits my play style to a tee, and with Mertens at CAM it's a game changer from my 5-3-2 formation on FIFA21.
With lovely dribbling, decent passing and very good finishing (even with goalkeepers being broken so far), Mertens has been a fantastic CAM for this early stage of FIFA. His positioning has allowed him to break the lines and get in to the box late to get some impressive goals, his agility and balance allows him to spin away from his markers quickly and move forwards up the pitch.
Obviously with him, he isn't a physical player but if you want a CAM/CF who can drop between that position of ST and CM, and with soft links to the likes of Lukaku, KDB and Hazard, thoroughly impressed.
