and live on Freeview channel 276
Antoine Semenyo is Bristol City’s most valuable asset, it has been decided by EA Sports’ latest edition of their popular franchise, FIFA 23.
FIFA 23 is out later this week and Bristol City appear on the EA Sports FIFA game for the last time before its rebrand.
The Robins received their player ratings last week with Daniel Bentley and Andi Weimann tied for their best player at 73. You can see the rest of the squad’s ratings by reading our piece: Bristol City FIFA 23 player ratings in full including boost for Leeds, Man United and Spurs target.
Those who have purchased different editions of the game and have EA Play have earlier access to the game which has allowed those to play all the game modes.
Logging on to the popular offline Career Mode and taking over the reigns at Ashton Gate, you get an insight into who the most valuable players are.
Two-time Ghana international Antoine Semenyo is at the top of the pile with a valuation of £3.1m, which is based on his contract running out at the end of the season. That is the starting valuation and when playing the game mode, managers can demand much moree than the starting offer.
News hasn’t been announced by the club yet but it is expected that the club will take up their further option and extend his contract.
There were reported bids from Bournemouth on deadline day whilst Celtic and Crystal Palace had also been interested in the star who is valued between £15-20m by the club.
Alex Scott - linked with moves to Leeds United, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur - is contracted until the summer of 2025 has a starting value of £3.0m, which is just £100k less than Semenyo. He had a superb breakout year in the Championship, playing more than 38 times and has continued his development into this campaign.
To finish off the top three, unsurprisingly is Han-Noah Massengo, another younger player with high potential. Massengo has a year left on his current deal with talks currently stagnated amid rumours of interest from Leicester City, Nice and Southampton, but he is still valuable in the virtual world of FIFA.
Last season’s top scorer Andi Weimann is valued at £2.6m after his 33 goal contribution across last season. The 31-year-old is with the club until the summer of 2024 and has become an important figure under manager Nigel Pearson.
Out of the four new arrivals this summer, Stefan Bajic comes out on top with a valuation of £1.7m, the same as Rob Atkinson, Joe Williams and other new addition Kane Wilson. Bajic has yet to play a competitive match because of an injury. Wilson meanwhile has had to settle for a place on the bench.
Club record signing Tomas Kalas, who joined from Chelsea, is not worth what City paid for him in 2019 according to the game. It was said they had paid a fee in the region of £8 million, but in EA’s eyes, they only value him at £1.9m.
As for the lowest valued players, fourth-choice goalkeeper Harvey Wiles-Richards is valued at £90k. He was loaned out to National League North outfit Hereford but was sent back because of injury sustained on the training ground.
