Peak PB Scores
Manuel Locatelli is a central midfielder for Sassuolo. Locatelli is instrumental in helping Sassuolo keep possession, averaging 61 passes per game and last season he helped Sassuolo to keeping a very high average of 55.7% possession per game. In Sassuolo's first game in Serie A this season, Locatelli completed an incredible 115 passes which led to his high PB score of 206 in a 1-1 draw where he did not make a goal contribution. Such a high PB score in such a cirumstance suggests strong PB potential. Locatelli is not just strong at keeping the ball for his side with his excellent passing ability, but he is also strong at dribbling with a very high 81% success rate on his attempted dribbles last season. Locatelli's PB scores have improved dramatically over the last 12 months and his technique and quality on the ball could lead to him being signed by a stronger side in the future. Overall, Locatelli does not contribute to goals particularly often and due to playing for a relatively weak side, he may struggle to hit high peak PB scores often but he does appear fairly likely to earn matchday dividends more often in the future.
1 Year Price Graph
Manuel Locatelli's price started the 2019-2020 season at just £0.47. Locatelli's price has increased considerably over the last 12 months. Though this has been for good reason with his performances improving considerably in the second half of last season, evident in his top 5 PB scores coming after November (When he had started to rise in price). Locatelli has made a strong start to the 2020-2021 season and if he continues to develop it is likely he will attract the attention of stronger sides and could therefore rise in price further. Locatelli currently has a market price of £1.22 with an instant sell price of £1.15 and this tight spread shows the current strong demand for him. If Locatelli can continue to dictate games so much in the future it is likely he will continue to hit high PB scores and will therefore rise further in price in the future.
