This FM2012 profile of Stephan El Shaarawy shows the wonderkid winger far from his full potential, although he is still very good in this screenshot. His dribbling seems to be his strong point, he is also very creative and is technically excellent. However, I would like my wingers to have a bit more pace, but I’m sure that could be bumped up with some specific training. Whatever you think of this kid £4.6m is a great price for him and is a great coup at that price.

Best buy rating: 8/10

Another excellent cheap option there Karl, there seems to be few options at that price on the wings so he’d certainly go near the top of my shortlist.


He’s seriously only worth 4.6M? Wow. A steal.


This guy is a beast, so smart on the pitch


And in fm 13 he will be one of the biggest talents! Watch out


Hey, im playing my second season at Liverpool, won 1 PL, 1 League Cup and 1 community shield. I have Hunterlaar, Suarez, Sigurdson, Rafinha, Borini, Yesil and Marco Buono, they all scores alottttttt (almost 100 goals just counting Suarez, Huntelaar and Sigurdson in 1 n a half season)! Do u think adding El Shaarawy would be needed? Because i really like this kid but afraid ifmi just leave him at AC Milan like dat, somebody would get him bfore i do xD do u think u need this guy for my squad?

You’ll know better than we will, all I can say is don’t sign him unless you offer first team football.


oh ok :) thanks anyway man :)


in my game, his attributes are almost the same as in the screenshot but currently im playing in 2015..i think he can be better in few more years
