Four Arsenal wonderkids you can’t ignore on FM18

Arsene Wenger’s days are numbered at Arsenal, so if you think you have what it takes to take charge of the Gunners in his place on Football Manager 2018 then you’re going to have to consider doing what he failed to do in his final years – make the most of the academy.

The Frenchman’s apparent reluctance to spend big money on players and the failure to successfully bring through more than just a handful of young players during his long tenure had ultimately led to a final decade of underachievement and fan unrest.

But now, with you in the hotseat, Arsenal’s fortunes can start to change for the better. The best place to start is to look to the club’s youth setup for any promising youngsters who could develop in to world class players in the future – it’ll save a few quid in transfers (which is what Wenger loved to do) but will also keep on the right side of the Emirates faithful.

We’ve done some digging and have identified four youth players at Arsenal who have the potential to become top class players with the right training and development.

Do the right thing by this lot and you’ll be a huge success at Arsenal…
