James Ward-Prowse profile aged 26 in the year 2021
James Ward-Prowse career history until 2021
This FM 2015 player profile of James Ward-Prowse shows one of the best young English talents in the game, a playmaker that will definitely become a Premier League star. Buying him right away from the Saints is costly and there’s little to no chance for a bargain deal in the future. I expect you’d need to pay over 20 million pounds to get him even after the first season.
In my test save Arsenal (with me as manager on holiday) bought him in 2016 for just over 20 million pounds and he became a first team regular right away. Moreover, he managed to rake in no less than 51 caps for England until 2021. The future profile screen shot, taken in October 2021, shows a really amazing midfielder, decent on the physical side, with excellent vision and determination to complement rock-solid technical attributes. He became a very good set piece taker too.
I think he’s a good candidate for a playmaker role but he can also be an effective box-to-box midfielder.
