Five wonderkids you need as Arsenal boss on FM17

Stepping into Arsene Wenger’s shoes as your first Football Manager 17 save?

You could have easier tasks, let’s just say that. Wenger is one of the icons of English football, having kept the club on a level path for over two decades, he has, by all accounts, written himself into the history of European football.

Arsenal will start your save expecting you to lift the title and compete in Europe. You have a good squad to work with, although balancing the midfield could be a challenge. Options are not an issue, but – as usual with Arsenal – the main aim must be to avoid the sort of injury crises that have blighted recent years at the Emirates.

So, you’re at the helm of a ship that has seldom been onto choppy waters, a ship that sails comfortably alongside the best, shiniest ships. Your task now is to take Arsenal to the next level and build a dynasty of your own.

Buying young is always a nice start for a dynasty, so these five are probably a good way to kick-off your save.
