Nicolo Fagioli: FM2020 Wonderkid Review
Fagioli is one of the best Italian starlets in the game and can excel in many positions in the centre of midfield. He is highly determined and given the right opportunities will develop into an amazing midfielder in the game.
In the auto-generated save he had initially remained with Juventus but chances were hard to come by thereby stagnating his growth. He has had a couple of loan spells which were fairly successful but eventually moved to Leicester and has established himself as a regular starter for the club. He has given decent returns of 4 goals and 11 assists in the league and his market value of £43.5 is an example of how good he can become in-game.
Having an average rating of under 7 though underwhelming could be because of his growth being stagnated and he will definitely develop into a better player under a human manager.
