But add a dash of muscle (say 20lbs?), then you can have a very elite player.

It is still work to be done, so I don't have him in the same tier as Barkov, but I think the potential is there.
I agree with everything you said, but 20 pounds is a bit more than a dash of muscle when you're already pretty fit
