Alphonse Areola has been a top talent on FM, over the last few series, and FM12 is no exception. The 18 year-old Frenchman has the potential to be the future goalkeeper for any side. Francis Cagigao says that Areola has the potential to be a leading Premiership goalkeeper and gives him 3.5 stars for Arsenal. For Areola's price, he can be bought for a decent price of 4.4m, and if he is trained right, it could turn out to be a long-term bargain.
