KWADWO ASAMOAH
Nationality: Ghana 🇬🇭
Club (first season): Juventus
Rating: 80

There are many good midfielders in the last year of contract. The problem is that Kaká, Gabi, Danny, Tiago and Fernandinho, just to name some, are too old for your team. Asamoah has the perfect age and for that reason you should try to convince him.
