FM17: Arsenal Squad Player Ratings Breakdown

Jump To

RealSport have been scouring through Football Manager 2017, the immersive manager experience game from Sports Interactive, to give you the lowdown on every Premier League squad.


To help you understand your squad, we’ve included each player’s star rating, in terms of their current and potential ability, their value and age. For example, if a player has a low current ability rating, but high potential, he is probably a young player that should be loaned out for improvement. If they have high current and potential ratings, they can slot straight into your first team.

The important thing to remember, however, is it’s all relative with FM. A two star player at one club may well be a four star player at another of lesser stature.

Arsenal’s starting transfer and wage budgets are as follows:
