Joshua Zirkzee: FM20 Wonderkid Review
Joshua Zirkzee is one of the best Dutch wonderkids in FM2020. He is a very well rounded striker who does not have many weaknesses.
In the auto-generated save, he has remained at Bayern and tried to break into the first team without great success. Despite having decent seasons with 10 league goals multiple times he remains the backup for the club and will definitely do much better with more game time. A human manager will definitely be able to get much more out of Zirkzee and can turn him into a world-class striker.
Despite little game time, Zirkzee has a very good average rating of over 7 and with more game time can easily be a world-class striker in most saves.
