Player Review

He's one of the more expensive players released via the SBC market as of late, but is he worth it?

Well, the best place to start is with the Frenchman's pace, which has shot up none fewer than 22 ratings to a solid 77 OVR. His defending has risen six ratings to an 86 OVR, whilst his physicality has gone up seven to a respectable 81.

The H/L work rate is exactly what you want from your centre half, whilst Koscielny has 3* ratings in both weak foot and skill moves.


Neither of these areas should cause you any issue in playing out from the back.

Ligue 1 isn't the most popular league in the game, but it's still decent. The French links will help in building him into any hybrids.

Worth it?

It's not a bad card, but we feel it's slightly overpriced.

If you can pick him up with deadweight in your club then by all means, go ahead, but for near on 100k, we're going to give this one a miss.
