Chelsea target Maxence Lacroix has been given an insane set of attributes on FIFA 22 that have sent fans of the video game series into meltdown.
Both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur were linked with the Wolfsburg defender this summer after he enjoyed an impressive first season in Germany.
His form in real life has been rewarded in-game as he has received an upgrade of 13 to get a 79-rated gold card on FIFA 22, which is available to EA Play members today via early access.
Lacroix had a silver card on last year's edition of the popular video game series and was included in EA Sports' Bundesliga team of the season.
Lacroix's statistics on the new game feature a pace rating of 88, an increase of 20 from his 68 pace on FIFA 21.
He has also been handed 80-rated defending and 77-rated physical statistics, to leave his card looking incredibly over-powered for the early stages of the game.
His stats have not gone unnoticed, with gamers flocking to social media to voice their excitement over the card before the full-release of FIFA 22 on October 1.
"Lacroix +20 pace. What an insane base card!" wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another tweeted saying: "Lacroix in FIFA 22, what a card."
However, some were sceptical of their ability to obtain Lacroix on the game or cope with playing an opponent that did have him in their team.
"Lacroix will be that non-rare that will be impossible to pack," claimed one FIFA player on Twitter.
Another admitted that: “Lacroix and Varane FUT spam might be the end of me I’m afraid.”
French central defender Lacroix moved to Wolfsburg last summer from Sochaux and made 36 appearances in his debut season in Germany.
This included 17 clean sheets in all competitions as Wolfsburg finished fourth in the Bundesliga and qualified for the Champions League.
The former France under-20 international has made seven appearances already this season, playing every one of Wolfsburg's matches in the league, cup and Europe.
