FIFA 19 Career Mode: Best cheap high potential left wingers (LW) and midfielders (LM)

Wingers can be extremely destructive and influential from an early age. The likes of Neymar, Ousmane Dembele, and Thomas Lemar have torn defences apart at the start of their career and made big money moves because of their talents. Not every team can afford to wait and see who develops and then splash the cash to sign them though. Most need to take the leap beforehand and develop their own star wingers.
