Team: Hajduk Split
Age: 18
Wage: £430
Value: £2.7 million
Best Attributes: 82 Sprint Speed, 72 Acceleration, 70 Vision


Stipe Biuk has a 68 rating with an 85 potential rating, and his 82 sprint speed and 72 acceleration are his best stats in the early stages of his career. His 70 dribbling and 68 ball control will rise with his overall rating, each reaching an 85 rating when maxed out.

With 75 ball control and 75 dribbling, he looks to be a great wide option going forward.

The Romanian played almost a full campaign last season, creating seven assists in 24 games. This season he has started well, scoring three goals in the first nine games, and he will be hoping his improvement will result in an international cap sooner rather than later.

Talles Magno (67 OVR – 85 POT)

Orozco has played 13 times in the first tier of football in Argentine Primera División, and in that time he’s scored two goals and created two assists. He is yet to make his debut for the Argentinian national team.
