Really solid starter CM I play him with a catalyst alongside Alaba who is my more defensive minded CM in a 4231. Engine might be a good shout too.
He’s quick, moves around the pitch well and excellent when he has the ball. Passing with a boost is very good. Has pitched in with a few goals but his shooting isn’t special, will only score nailed on chances. Has incredible stamina which also really helps.
Superior CM for me to Valverde, a card priced much much higher.
He might work well more defensively with a shadow but passing and dribbling boosts on this years game right now are more important in my opinion. So use him as a secondary or tertiary CM with a more defensive player beside him.
Strong links to Martinez, Skriniar and Dumfries at Inter. Chiesa and Insigne among others from Italy.
Unbelievably good for my Seria A team. Bought him for my starter team and still use him.
. Attacking positioning is very good
. Balance and pace feels good when countering
. His shooting is surprising good from long shots
. For the price there is no one better
. Body type is very good
. Hard to link
. Finesse shots don’t work much with him
. Height can be an issue from set pieces
