Have you heard of Andrea Patagna before? No? Neither have we. Yet he is one quality young player coming from Italy, more accurately AC Milan. Similar type of player to Alesandro Matri, which can be a good thing or bad, depends on your opinion of Matri as a 'quality' striker.
Andrea's starting attributes are pure awful, nothing but his physical attributes tell us that we are looking at a quality advanced forward for the future. He is by no means a player who can make an immediate impact at any team, and is best to let him develop naturally on loans. Yet, his determination (16) gives us a glimpse of hope that he will develop into a class striker for the future.
Ten season into Football Manager 2014, and we can see massive improvement of all of his attributes. From technical to mental ones, but most notable change can be seen at his already strongest area of the game, his physical attributes.
Now to his scoring ways. Will he score much? Short answer, no. Definitely not a world class material, but can be a good substitute at any club from top 5 leagues in FM 2014.
As he is on a loan at Sampdoria from AC Milan in his first season of the game, there is no way of getting him right at the start. You'll have to wait for the second season and then offer AC Milan a bid of around £5M, few quid's more or less, but that's the marginal bid.
Solid young attacker for most of the clubs in Football Manager 2014, not a must buy player, but a good substitute.
