Nehuen Perez is an Argentinian FM20 wonderkid who plays as Defender for Famalicao on loan from Atletico Madrid. He is yet to represent Argentina at the senior level but has done so at several junior levels.
In a country known for producing a lot of attacking talent, Perez is an exception and is one of the best defensive prospects. He spent his youth career primarily at Argentinos Juniors before making the switch to Atletico Madrid in 2018 for a fee of around £2m. His playstyle is said to be similar to that of Jose Gimenez. He is currently on loan at Famalicao and has won a couple of player of the month awards for his current club.
Perez is a robust aggressive defender who does not back out of a challenge.

Nehuez Perez: FM2020 Wonderkid Review
Perez is one of the best Argentinian wonderkids in FM2020. He is a very well rounded central defender who does not have many weaknesses.
In the auto-generated save, Perez has spent his entire career at Atletico. He, however, has had several loan spells which were largely unsuccessful. He was never really able to break into the first team at Atletico which has no doubt stunted his growth. Despite this, he seems to have excellent stats and I am very sure that a human manager will be able to get much more out of the player.
Despite not having much game time, his average rating of around 7 is still impressive and as he will definitely become much better with better management and more game time.
