April’s Ligue 1 Player of the Month (POTM) has been revealed on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it is Turkey and Lille hitman Burak Yilmaz who has picked up the award.

Yilmaz has been awarded a new 87 OVR card and it looks to be a great value SBC.

Take a look at the new card and how to unlock it below.

Player of the Month

Lille are on the verge of their first Ligue 1 title for a decade and Burak Yilmaz is a key man in their attack.

Despite missing nine games with a calf injury, Yilmaz has scored 15 goals this season to fire Lille to the top of the table with one game to play.

The Turkey international signed on a free in the summer and must go down as one of the bargains of the season.

The 35-year-old picked up the April POTM award after scoring three times and providing one assist in four games last month.

LEADING THE LINE - Yilmaz will be insane in FUT Squad Battles

However, with the Ligue 1 Team of the Season week coming up, he could be a useful player to have in completing the objectives that will likely follow.

With good pace and strength, Yilmaz will be a handful in Friendly and offline modes.
