This post has been written by South American scout SpyFutbol. He has recommended 5 Argentinian players for you to sign on FM23.
Julián Aude – Left-Back, Lanús
A product of one of the finest youth setups in Argentina, Julián Aude is a testament to superb scouting and the clear pathway to first-team football at Lanús. At 19-years-old, Aude is beginning to make his name in South America as a technically competent, marauding left back. His ability to offer intelligent overlapping runs is something that frequently causes opposition sides issues. Defensively, his game is constantly evolving – albeit he still has a ways to go in that regard.
Ezequiel ‘Equi’ Fernández – Defensive/Central Midfielder, Tigre (on loan from Boca Juniors)
Equi Fernández is a player experiencing a real breakout year in senior football. After making a handful of appearances for Boca Juniors, the 20-year-old midfielder was shipped out on loan to newly promoted Tigre. For the most part, Fernández’ performances at the base of Diego Martínez’ midfield have been nothing short of sensational. Wonderfully composed in possession with superb ball-winning skills, Fernández possesses all of the traits that you’d like to see in a defensive midfielder. His eye for a killer, line-breaking pass is another string to his bow. A player who’d I’d say is equally as adept playing as a #8 as he is a #6.
Julián Fernández – Winger, Vélez Sarsfield
Now, onto one of my favourite young players in South America at the moment. At the tender age of just 18-years-old, Julián Fernández is already making waves in Argentina. A lightening-quick, left footed winger, capable of playing on either wing, Fernández possesses both the physical and technical skill-sets to go on and enjoy a brilliant career in Europe. Impressive performances both domestically and during Vélez’ impressive Copa Libertadores run have lead to many-a South American football watcher expecting big things from this talented youngster.
Abiel Osorio – Striker, Vélez Sarsfield
Another from, for my money, the biggest talent factory in Argentina at the moment; Vélez Sarsfield. Abiel Osorio is perhaps not as easy on the eye as some of his counterparts, but his combination of bullish strength and deceptive pace makes him a #9 that, despite being only 20-years-of-age, would strike fear into the hearts of plenty of central-defenders. Technically he may not be the cleanest of strikers, but his impressive knack of fashioning shooting opportunities from even the tightest of angles is a trait that means one thing: he will get goals.
Ramiro Enrique – Striker, Banfield
A vastly different type of centre-forward to Osorio, Ramiro Enrique comes from very good stock. This when you consider his father, Héctor, was a vital part of Argentina’s 1986 World Cup-winning squad. Enrique’s innate ability to wriggle out of challenges with finesse and poise is a quality which enables him to stand out from many of his peers. A more than capable ball carrier, Enrique is able to act as a creator as well as a goal scorer. He’s not quite yet exploded in regards to his goal scoring output, but at just 21-years-old, I feel that time will soon be upon us. A highly promising young striker.
