Here are the stats for each of the available players:

Emiliano Buendía

The highlight of this trio with an 86 OVR is definitely Buendia, and he's rocking a 90 in Dribbling at the top of his stats line.

On top of that, an 89 in Pace and 86 in Passing, followed by an 82 in Shooting give a really solid balance.

While his 71 in Defense and 77 in Physicality are the lowest, neither is astronomically bad.

Rico Henry

Rico Henry comes in with an 84 OVR, which is not far behind Buendia, but he's got a superior 94 in Pace.

Most of Henry's other stats sit in the low 80s, with an 83 in Dribbling, 81 in Physicality, and 80 in Defense and Passing.

At the bottom of his stat line is definitely the abysmal 51 in Shooting, so keep that in mind if you add Henry to your Ultimate Team.

Jefferson Lerma

Finally we have Jefferson Lerma, who has an 85 OVR and the lowest top stat here, but isn't majorly lacking in any area.

Lerma has a top 87 in Physicality, as well as an 83 in Defense and 81 in both Dribbling and Passing.

He's just below the 80s for the rest, managing a 78 in Pace and 72 in Shooting to round out a fairly balanced addition from AFC Bournemouth.
