Serge Aurier (RC Lens) - FB
Versatile Fullback. Can be approached to sign at the start of the game for about 2 million pounds. Should be immediately trained as a left back as has become the most versatile fullback on my team. Very good prospect for the future.

Tarmo Kink (Gy?r) - AMRL / ST

Alex Smithies (Huddersfield) - GK
The best English goalkeeping prospect, he's also good at the start for mid table prem teams.
Age: 19
EU National: Yes
Asking price: £750k-1.2m



Milan Badelj (Dinamo) - AM RLC
Versatile midfielder and a great playmaker, finishes well from distance and has alot of assists. Plays AMC/MC naturally - costs around £1-2 mill. Has world-class potential, on the verge of Wonderkid!
Age: 20
EU National: No
Value: £1.2m


Philippe Coutinho (Inter) - AMC
Wonderkid attacking midfielder who works great as playmaker - good finisher also! Simply the best player in the game, on the position, if you ask me. Only Matias Fernandez, James Rodriguez and perhaps Marek Hamsik performs equally as well!
Age: 17
EU National: No
Value: £4m


Oscar Cardozo (Benfica) - ST
my absolute favourite striker, he'll score in any formation as a poacher or target man (probably in others as well, just haven't tried it). I've bought him in many different saves, world class in all of them. He'll cost around £11 mil in the first window, a bargain price compared to what he preforms. He will always be your top striker, regardless of which other strikers you have.
Age: 26
EU National: No (easy work permit though)
Asking price: Around £11m


Artur Sobiech (Ruch Chorzów) - ST
Great bargain! He is going for half a million £ but you can earn from him. Once I bought him to Catania and after first season I sold him to Fiorentina for £1.25m. He doesn't score lots of goals.
Age: 20
EU National: Yes
Asking price: £200-400k


Mesut Özil (Werder Bremen) - AMLC
Trust me he is good. He is the kinda player if he is in a 100% shooting position he will shoot but if he isn't he rather passes than shoots. Young and has good stats cheap, but Werder Bremen wouldn't just give him away for cheap unless his contract is expiring or some other reason. In transfer month it was the last day and the last 30 mins so I accepted the negotiation price of 30, but he is worth it. I am already his favorite personnel and plus he likes being tutored by other players. Overall Good Buy!!!
Age: 21
EU National: Yes
Value: £4.5m


Micha? Janota (Feyenoord) - AMLC / FC
Great left winger for middle-class teams.
Age: 19
EU National: Yes
Value: £1.2m


Salomon Kalou (Chelsea) - AMRL / ST
Quick, good dribbler. Always my player on form.
Age: 24
EU National: No
Value: £5.75m


Zakarie Boucher (Le Havre) - GK
Age: 16
EU National: Yes


Silviu Lung Jr (U Craiova) - GK
He is amazing, very young and cheap. Good GK to keep until he retires.
