Renato Sanches at Striker?

I need a Portuguese striker for <400k right now, and I know he is a fantastic CM, but Renato Sanches looks like he could be incredible in any position.

If I applied a hunter or deadeye, could he be better than Joao Felix or CR7 or Bruno?

    Why not? What stat holds him back? Especially with a deadeye- not trying to say you're wrong and I'm not trying to say it's a normal idea but what wouldn't make it work?

    What’s the team? You could just start him off at ST and swap him ingame, he has too much of a defensive presence too to be wasted at ST imo

    Just to give you a hint, I’m playing him CM and he misses a lot when in front of goal. In most cases juiced shooting stats mean nothing in those pumped cards 7b41efdb30dd9a9e052f6ce274545eae.jpg

    Dude has 85 finishing, 83 composure and no traits, he’s not gonna be a good finisher

    My renato has 50 goals from 300 games playing cdm/cm.

    I’m sure he would do a job at striker but wouldn’t want him as my striker when there are so many affordable and great strikers/attackers in the game now.

    Put it this way, I’d be pretty happy to be up against someone using Renato at ST. Try and think about it from your opponents point of view, would you be scared of facing a ST Renato? Probably not.

    lmao at Sanches at striker. Problem is the guy who he's usually partnered with. If they've run out of coins because they've splurged on CR7 they'd be much better off with Lautaro.

    Just stick Maguire up top while you're there.
    Just keep crossing the ball, you'll score 50 headers a game

    Give him a go, with shooting chem he has the stats needed. I've played unorthodox players up front and some have performed very well.

    I played against a guy who had Goretzka yesterday and he caused me more problems than any striker has in a while.

    For perspective, I play in a 4321 and am using 94 Bernardo Silva RW who already has a green link with 95 KDB, and then 92 Nani on the left needs a weak link to stay on full chem.

    So what would work easily and perfectly is a Portuguese striker

    midfield is a bit weak- deco for links in the center and because I had him lying around in the club, Kolarov shapeshifters on the LCM (I know he might look awful to some but he's been one of my favorite players all year, might be looking to replace him if I were to use somebody worth using)

    I’d say your best bet is CR7, or even Bruno Fernandes, or Aguero

    Joao Felix not a viable option? Actually really liked CR7 earlier when I used him though

    Use Renato a LCM and get a real striker. 8 chem is fine, you won't even notice in most cases

    The budget is now around 600k after realizing I had several high rated players sitting in the club- still not sure that I could fit in Sanches, as I'd need a serie A CM to replace Kolarov. Was thinking Nainggolan? It would leave me 300k for just about any striker at that point on 8 chem, Portuguese, MLS, or Premier League
