Highlighted stats

Below is a list of the areas which Lucas has high statistics and why these are important:

With any defensive midfielder this is an important statisitic as they must force other players off of the ball etc. The downside is this goes with aggression. Luckily Lucas has low stats for aggression so there should be no problems with red cards.
Lucas has a good passing stat which is obviously very important for midfielders, so his pass completition rate should be nice and high. He has potential to increase this with his high potential rating.
First Touch:  
A good first touch rating helps a player in fast paced games so he can also play his part in attacking play even though he is a defensive midfielder.
Most good players from South America have good technique stats and Lucas is no different. This stat is important for patient teams usually from the big euro leagues like Spain and Italy.
Lucas has a good teamwork rating which is a sign of a good midfielder as their the engine that keeps the formation working. Being unselfish is important for Defensive midfielders and he is good in this area.

Lucas has potential within a few years in game to become one of the best players in any league he plays and would be a good purchase straight away if you can get Anderlecht to sell.
