Another day, another review. Today we will take a closer look at Ross Barkley. Promising young player form Everton and a England U21 international. Possibly underrated player, let’s see…
Ross Barkley is an Inside Forward, best playing in support duty. Let’s take a look at his attributes at the start of the game.
Well at first glance this player doesn't promise much. Average attributes needed for his playing position of Inside Forward. But we have to take in our judgment that he is only 18 years old! So there is a lot time for him to develop as a player. And for a teenage player, these are fairly good attributes.
Now on to the scout report from Pantaleo Corvino, scout from Barcelona.
Judging by the report card from Corvino, we could say that this is a promising young player. A good signing for team like Barcelona means that he would be a definite purchase for a mid reputation team. His current ability is not so good but his potential ability could lead him to becoming a leading attacking midfielder in the future, this is definitely one to take a special notice of. So his potential ability is fairly good, remember we can’t see potential ability anywhere in the game as that attribute is hidden and only visible from game editor.
Estimated Cost - N/A cause Everton are unlikely to sell him. But his value at the start of the game is £2M, and our belief is you could get this player for a price between 5M – 7M at the start of the game.
Wage Demands - £66K p/m - £86K p/m, not much and affordable for most clubs. Bare in mind you can always bargain with his agent to maybe lowering the initial starting wage.
|Main Strength – Skillful||Main Weakness – Team Player||Personality – Fairly Ambitious|
|Specific Strength – Important Matches||Specific Weakness – Injury Proneness||Team Personality – Professional|
Moving on, and let us take a look at his attributes 8 years into the game.
Ah, here is something that should encourage you into purchasing this player. All of his main attributes needed for his position developed quite nicely, Technical, Mental and Physical. And we can also see that his value from starting £2M rose to £14M, just reflecting the true value of this player. We are more than satisfied in how Ross developed in 8 years.
His career stats are also fairly good. With average rating being over 7.30 from the time season 2016-2017. This is also one more thing that should encourage you into purchasing this young player to your team.
Final verdict, Ross Barkley is a quality young player. Solid attributes at the start of the game with only 18 years of age and more than good attributes 8 years into the game, are enough to convince us that this is a quality player and worth of purchase. So if you are in a need of a solid Inside Forward, look no further than this player. Our rating 3.5 stars out of 5.
