TRANSFER INFO

Kuki is seen as one of the most talented strikers in Football Manager 2017. He made our list of Wonderkids and is one of the most bought strikers in the game. His Fee varies from game to game. If you buy him early on in the game, you could end up paying less than 5M. The longer you wait, the higher his price will be.

PROS

At the age of 18, Kuki is already good enough for a high level club. He is a Striker that loves to play with his back towards the goal, so he can be used as a Target Man up front (make sure to play him the ball to his feet if you do). His main strength is his ability to strike a ball (although this can also be seen as a con or weakness). Kuki has a very good free kick and has the ability to be dangerous from distance with a long shot.

CONS

Kuki will need to improve the most on his finishing skills and his mental abilities. Teamwork and Work Rate need to go up, so make sure to Tutor him. His shooting trait could prove to be a weakness. He rather looks for the shot than to search for a teammate. If you like your team to play Tiki-Taka, Kuki might not be the best choice: you will need to retrain him and unlearn the trait to shoot from every position.
