Dele Alli tops list of hidden gems on FIFA 17 Career mode

No one at Tottenham Hotspur needs telling that Dele Alli has the potential to be a major star but fans of the club will still be excited to hear that EA Sports deem him to be a future world beater.

The gaming giants are currently releasing the updated player ratings ahead of the release of FIFA 17 but now they have released a spreadsheet detailing just how good some of those players can become.

While most of the FIFA world prefers to dabble in the Ultimate Team feature, anyone hoping to build a successful dynasty in Career Mode will be excited to look at what is essentially a cheat sheet.

Alli, 20, who won the PFA Young Player of the Year last season, starts life rated 80 but use him well and he could improve to an incredible 90, and stand alongside the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gareth Bale at the top of the game.

So he should certainly be the first player on your transfer wish list while a cheeky bid for Borussia Dortmund star Ousmane Dembele could also be a great investment. The right-midfielder, who this time last year was an unknown youth player at Rennes, starts the game rated 77 but could join Alli on 90.

Renato Sanches (Bayern Munich) and Anthony Martial (Manchester United) are the only other two players with the capability to make it to a 90 rating while a further four, including Chelsea's Kurt Zouma, can grow to an 89 rating.

But they will only grow to that level with the kind of care you would give, say, a pet goldfish, so don't expect them to just jump up to being world-class after a couple of campaigns sitting on the bench.

Top 20

Anyway, take a look at the top 20 below. For the full list click here.

Arsenal fans, look away

Arsenal have two players included in the list. Naturally, Hector Bellerin is one of them. The 21-year-old was nominated as the best right-back in the Premier League last season and even broke into the senior Spain squad. He has the potential to go as high as 87.

The other is Serge Gnabry. But unfortunately the German won't be an Arsenal player when the game comes out as Arsenal curiously decided to sell him to Werder Bremen for a nominal sum. Arsene Wenger will be praying he doesn't meet that level.

Manchester United starlets

Along with Martial, four others make the list.

Marcus Rashford (76 > 88)  
Luke Shaw (80 > 88)
Timothy Fosu-Mensah (71 > 87)
Andreas Pereira (72 > 85)
