FM21: The top 10 wonderkids in each position on Football Manager 2021


It is the list that every Football Manager gamer craves. The very best FM 2021 young talents, sorted by position, value, potential and age.

Just to clarify, the 'Wonderkids' listed who have the expected high prospects in the latest version of the game are under the age of 22.  While some of the players listed have what is known as flexible potential ability and can vary from save to save.  

So, with help from Football Manger Stories, we have compiled a comprehensive list of the top potential the newly released game has on offer.


Kicking off with the man between the sticks.  The 16-year-old Alejandro Iturbe from Atletico Madrid is certainly terrific value at just £115,000 and with his best years ahead of him.  

Other keepers to look out for would be Belgium's Maarten Vandevoordt, who clearly has the potential to be the next Thibaut Courtois and Real Madrid's Andriy Lunin also represents good value for money.


Centre Backs

Young and upcoming centre backs to look out for aside from the obvious Matthijs de Ligt would be RB Leipzig's Dayton Upamenco, who certainly has all the physical attributes to be an impressive acquisition.  

While Ibanez at Roma would also represent an affordable alternative, valued at just £5.75 million.


Right Full Backs

In the right-back slot, while the top four mentioned in this list maybe difficult to prise away from their respective clubs, the likes of Takehiro Tomiyasu at Bologna and Gabriel Menino from SEP in Brazil would certainly represent exciting investments for the future. 


Left Full Backs

For left back I would certainly look at trying to acquire Noah Katterbach at FC Koln as well as Nuno Mendes, who looks a terrific buy at just 18 years of age.


Defensive Midfielders

Moving on to the holding midfield, otherwise known as the 'Claude Makelele' role.

I would have a go at acquiring Marco Kana from Anderlecht as again he represents strong value for money as well as the more affordable Martin Calderon at Real Madrid.


Central Midfielders

In attacking midfield you would certainly be looking for someone with the potential of good technical and passing qualities.

With this in mind, the likes of Mason Mount from Chelsea and Jude Bellingham, who in real life has just been called up to the England squad, would not cost too much and certainly have the potential to develop into quality all-round options.


Attacking Midfielders

The attacking midfield market is saturated with high quality talent, all of whom are capable of driving your team forward and into the future.

Barcelona's 17-year-old Pedri looks like a guaranteed homerun while the likes of Giovanni Reyna and Lee Kang-In could represent some fantastic cut-price options.


Right Wingers

On the right hand side, Yusuf Demir from Rapid Vienna, certainly looks an easier option to acquire then some of the other names listed, as does the aforementioned Lee Kang-In at Valencia.


Left Wingers

There are certainly more affordable options than that of Jadon Sancho in this top 10. Jeremy Doku at Rennes is a name that immediately jumps out as does Real Betis' Diego Lainez, both of whom, in time, could be developed into fine wingers. 


Centre Forwards

Finally the crucial position of centre forward. Both Sebastian Esposito at Inter Milan and Amine Gouiri  represent good potential buys for the future.
