Zaniolo in the Premier League? This is how he would fare for FIFA

Nicolò Zaniolo is increasingly a Rome case, having asked for the transfer only to find himself being offered to Bournemouth (apparently an unwelcome destination). Certainly, the Cherries would be a landing ground for the Premier League, which is undeniably the most attractive league in the world today. But how would the Italian international fare in the country of Albion? We asked the FIFA 23 database.

How much is Zaniolo worth on FIFA? —

To date, Zaniolo is worth 80, a respectable overall also for being only 23 years old. This evaluation is already the result of a downgrade by EA Sports, which took one point away from last October’s La Spezia release of FIFA 23. His main skills include acceleration and aggression (89), but also strength 87, speed and placement 86, ball control 85 and dribbling 81, for a profile that, made of tenacity and athleticism, could really work for the Premier League.

Comparison with Bournemouth and Premier —

Despite the drop dictated by a difficult season at Roma, Zaniolo is still well above Bournemouth’s average, with just 74. To date, he would be the second best player in the squad, behind only Brazilian goalkeeper Neto, but with a three-point lead to third (the former Feyenoord defender Senesi). And the rest of the Premier League? The tops are obviously very far away: De Bruyne is worth 91, Salah 90, while – to put things in perspective – at 89 there are Van Dijk, Alisson, Ederson, Haaland, Casemiro and Kane, at 88 Kanté, Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Son, ad 87 Robertson, Rodri and De Gea. Very distant, Zaniolo would be housed among the various Martinelli, Arthur, Maguire, Fred, Keita, Martial, Dalot, Almiron, Isak, Freuler, Scamacca and Trossard, the former Brighton who has just moved to Arsenal. Literally one of 36 with the same rating. Then you just have to decide if it’s worth it…
