The ideal position for FUT Birthday Nkunku to play in game would be as a second ST in a 4-2-2-2 or a 4-4-2. He can lay the ball off, connect the midfield to attack and provide the finishing touch when he’s needed. His stats are so well rounded he could be good in any place in the midfield.
He has a very unique player profile in game with not single player embodying his playstyle.
He has a few drawbacks such as:
- 71 Strength and 65 Aggression make it easy for physical defenders to push him off the ball
- His Average body type might make him feel clunky at times
- His shooting outside the box isn’t great which takes something away from his attacking abilities
