Career history stats
It is time to take a closer look at player we believe could be next Vincent Kompany, young French star defender Kurt Zouma. Unlike the other wonderkids we’ve reviewed, Kurt could easily make an immediate impact at any Premiership side in Football Manager 2014. Reason for such opinion comes from the fact that he has above average defensive attributes even at the start of the game, age 18.
Attributes that you should take in consideration to determine if he posses the quality to be a starter at your club are; Heading (16), Marking (14), Tackling (14), Aggression (13), Bravery (15), Determination (14), Positioning (13), Jump Reach (15), and Strength (17). Naturally, these are the attributes needed for his role as a Central Defender. Although, you should train his Composure, Concentration, and Decisions.
Once he develops, he becomes a brick wall in the defence. Physically very strong, with World Class mental attributes, and fairly solid technical attributes. Also, his Leadership develops quite nicely, so you might be looking at your new team captain.
If we glance at his career stats, we can ensure ourselves even more that he is a top class defender. With an Average Rating at around 7.30 throughout the season, tells us that he is constant performer.
Regarding his transfer situation, well we can say that his services are obtainable, but they come for a hefty price. Be sure to have at least £7.75M in your transfer kitty, this is the absolute minimum price we managed to transfer him. But usually his estimated cost is somewhere from £9M to £11.5M. Regardless the price, this bright young defender is a must buy in our books.
