Who Will be the Best Wonderkid in Football Manager 2023? 

We have done the list in order of quality, so sadly some of the players closer to the top will most likely cost a fortune in FM23. Players like Pedri, Gavi and Saka will be all but unobtainable for pretty much any team in the game. 

NOW READ: How to find the best wonderkids in FM23.

However, the further down the list you go the more realistic a singing the player will be, even for some of the small clubs.

Players like Calvin Ramsey of Liverpool or Timothee Pembele will make great loan additions too, as despite only recently coming through at their clubs, they are still a way off the first team. 

It is worth keeping in mind, a player will be cheaper if they have lower wages and are from a smaller club or league. All of this will impact just how accessible and viable a player is to sign.
