TOTW 25 Investment: Franco Vazquez
Player: Franco Vazquez, 86 Rated Inform
Target Price: 32,000 coins
Reasoning: High rated informs always have value because of Prime Icon SBCs – many of them require high rated squads with multiple informs. Franco Vazquez is already the cheapest 86 rated inform on the market.
In addition, he has a great league and nation (La Liga and Italy) that make him easier to link when completing challenges with chemistry requirements.
Lastly (and this is a big one), high rated informs will be valuable for the upcoming FUT Birthday event at the end of the month. Last year, EA released special versions of David Luiz, Fernando Torres, and El Shaarawy.
In order to obtain these, players had to complete SBCs with lofty requirements: 86, 87, or 88 rated squads with 5, 6, or 7 informs.
As a result, high rated informs (86s and 87s especially) shot up in price.
Even if EA doesn’t decide to release FUT Birthday Special Cards, I expect the FIFA community to catch wind of the event and Vazquez to rise in the hype.
