Toprak or not Toprak?

That is the question. Terrible puns aside, I'm really torn over going for him. I'm a special card hoarder and he looks like a great card especially for 40k but I have some reservations.

Toprak fits into this team:

I absolutely love this CB partnership and as unbelievably daft as it sounds I get very sentimental over my players, I'm happy with the way it is but I've a wandering eye for Toprak, he looks too good to pass up and he's only available for 5.5 more hours.

Finally, and perhaps more importantly, there's a financial aspect to think about. I plan on picking up an IF Zaha for definite but I've held off while mulling over Toprak. I only have 50k right now but I have Gold 3 rewards coming tonight, by which time Zaha may have risen 5-10k (at least that's what happened with IF Werner) so I'm better off making the decision now.

    Originally I played his normal card alongside IF Vogt, but for his SBC at only around 35k he was too good to pass up on. Solid imo.

    Get him before it's too late.

    You don't have to put him straight in the team anyway.

    I got him guys, thanks to @ColeWorld for posting a cheap solution in the SBC thread.

    I'll use him in the team above but I don't want to break up the Hoffenheim partnership full time so planned a tasty hybrid:

    Only expensive card I'll have to buy is Aduriz, not sure which version I'll go for but my collection is missing a MotM card.

    Edit: Might just use Dragovic / A German CB instead of Sulu but I've tried most of them already.

    Let's be honest now, you won't have that team for too long. You might as well save your coins for a tradeable card like haha. That way you could move on to another team whenever you're ready.

    I got him for 13k because I had a load of 84 rated players and untradeable Movember Hennessy. Only needed Bravo and Ramsey to complete the SBC. Don't think I'll use him though as I have Boateng but it was a deal hard to refuse. Insane stats though so I might cash in Boateng and just use Toprak. Is he any good?

    I have well over a dozen teams, so yes, I will have this team for long. I don't play this game the way most do, I "collect" teams I guess you could say.

    1 hour left but I'm not sure what to do. Card looks nice but Bundesliga has so many good cb options that I'm not sure if I need him

    Never look past a player who looks like he is performing the electric slide while dribbling
