Nicolò Zaniolo In-Game Stats & Player Analysis

Zaniolo certainly isn’t a bad midfielder, however for the time it would take to upgrade all the way to his 86 card, questions do have to be asked.

Firstly, as a CM, only having 70 defending does limit his ability somewhat, and only having 67 Interceptions, 74 Defensive Awareness and 71 Standing Tackling does mean that he’ll be best served further forward.

As a more attacking midfielder though, there are instantly red flags, with only 3* Skills and 3* Weak Foot being key downsides.

Furthermore, his shooting is below average, with only 86 Finishing and 84 Shot Power, and a mediocre 77 Composure.

His Dribbling may look okay, but only having 78 Agility is relatively poor, and with no dribbling stat above 90, there are far better options.

Nicolò Zaniolo Squad Links

As an Italian in Serie A, there are tonnes of ways you can link Zaniolo into your team.

As defensive options, you have Roma’s 84 Juan Jesus, who is also a live item, as well as the popular Scream 86 Romagnoli. In the midfield, you have a number of good Future Stars cards, including the 88 Barella, currently available in SBCs, as well as 91 Tonali. Going forward, cards such as 90 Immobile and 89 Insigne provide top striking options.
