His attributes won't place him as 'world class' for everyone, but he's playing at the top level for my Milan side and is just breaking into the Italian national squad as well.
Loves getting forward and is consistent as hell, despite what his coaches report says. A good personality means that early first team football (I sent him on loan to Cremonese, Kasimpasa and Aston Villa in consecutive seasons) should see him develop pretty well.
