Erling Braut Haaland (OVR 84)

Age: 20

Position(s): ST

Club: Borussia Dortmund

Country: Norway

FIFA 20 potential: 90

Few players have seen a rise quite like Erling Braut Haaland. The Norwegian striker went from being relatively unknown at the beginning of the 2019/20 season to a superstar in just 12 months.

The Dortmund striker has seen his rating jump to an 84 OVR and we’re sure his Career Mode potential will be sky-high. Haaland is in line to be one of FIFA 21’s future stars.

Alphonso Davies (OVR 81)

FIFA 21 Alphonso Davies rating


Age: 19

Position(s): LB, RM, LM

Club: Bayern Munich

Country: Canada

FIFA 20 potential: 88

Canadian star Alphonso Davies has quickly established himself as one of the hottest young defenders in the world, starting as Bayern Munich cruised to the Champions League title.

With just 72 OVR on FIFA 20, Davies’ potential was still a massive 88 OVR.

Davies brings a terrifying 96 Pace to FIFA 21, which will put him in prime position to contend with the best in the world at the slot.

Vinicius Jr (OVR 80)

Vinicius FIFA 21


Age: 20

Position(s): LW

Club: Real Madrid

Country: Brazil

FIFA 20 potential: 92

Another player who has had his FIFA 21 rating officially confirmed is Real Madrid forward Vincius Jr.

Vinicius has seen his rating jump from a 79 to an 80 and with a 92-rated Career Mode potential on FIFA 20, we imagine he’ll be another top prospect on FIFA 21.

Mason Greenwood (OVR 77)

Age: 18

Position(s): RM, ST

Club: Manchester United

Country: England

FIFA 20 potential: 89

Mason Greenwood has announced himself as one of England’s brightest prospects after scoring five goals in both the Premier League and Europa League.

Greenwood’s 89 potential on FIFA 20 is sure to rise on FIFA 21 after an impressive season in Manchester.

With 81 Pace, 78 Shooting, and 78 Dribbling in FIFA 21, the teenage striker has all the attributes to be a top-class forward for years to come on Career Mode and shouldn’t break the bank if you snap him up early!

Predicted Ratings

There will be far more ratings to come over the following weeks, here are our predictions for the rest of the FIFA 21 wonderkids!

Ansu Fati (OVR 75)

Fati FIFA 21


Age: 17

Position(s): LW, RW

Club: Barcelona

Country: Spain

FIFA 20 potential: 90

Teenage winger Ansu Fati became Barcelona’s youngest ever goal scorer this season aged just 16!

Barca speedster Fati is another player with massive potential, and with 4-star skills and 4-star weak foot he is a nightmare for defenders. Managers this year could snap him up for his £19 million release clause, however, don’t expect the same on FIFA 21.

Eduardo Camavinga (OVR 75)

Camavinga FIFA 21


Age: 17

Position(s): CM

Club: Stade Rennais

Country: France

FIFA 20 potential: 90

French teenager Eduardo Camavinga is already tipped to make a big move this summer. Camavinga has made 36 senior appearances across all competitions this season as he has burst onto the scene with several composed displays in the middle of the park.

The 17-year-old’s potential on FIFA 20 is a massive 90 OVR. This could rise even higher next year, plus managers will be abler to sign him in the first season. That is unless he does move elsewhere this summer.

William Saliba (OVR 75)

Age: 19

Position(s): CB

Club: Saint-Etienne (on loan from Arsenal)

Country: France

FIFA 20 potential: 88

French centre back William Saliba should return to Arsenal ahead of the new season having spent the year on loan at St Etienne. Injury has derailed much of his 2019/20 season; however, he could be the man to sure up Arsenal’s defence.

At just 19 it would be unfair to expect Saliba to instantly improve the Gunners notoriously unreliable defence, although if his FIFA 20 potential is anything to go by, he will be a star!
