In the words of Benjamin Franklin, only three things are certain in life: death, taxes, and Leroy Fer as a FUT hidden gem.

Fer's inclusion should come as no surprise to veteran FIFA players. He was one of 15 & 16's most effective Ultimate Team players, and this year's incarnation is no different. In short, Leroy Fer plays like a low-rent Yaya Toure, and he's got the stats to back it up.

Physically, the guy's an animal. He could be a little stronger (73), sure, but it's hard to argue with his jumping (90), stamina (92), and aggression (80). Fer's long shots (78) and shot power (85) make him lethal on the edge of the area, and he's an effective passer (79 short, 76 long) and dribbler (78 dribbling, 75 ball control) when required to do so.

He's good enough to begin with, but stick an Engine chemistry card on Leroy Fer and he becomes completely unstoppable.

Approx. Cost: 900 coins.
