What makes a wonderkid?
For a real wonderkid, you have to be a teenager upon your first Career Mode save, so that means Kai Havertz misses out.
Florian Wirtz (OVR 78 - POT 90)
A potential superstar in the making, Florian Wirtz is already contributing with goals and assists in the Bundesliga for Bayer Leverkusen.
This season he has been in astonishing form, with six goals and six assists in 11 games played in the Bundesliga and Europa League.
Great on the ball and very agile, he's just what you want for a tricky CAM.
Jamal Musiala (OVR 75 - POT 88)
Jamal Musiala is getting regular playtime at Bayern Munich and has been called up to the national squad.
Nippy with top dribbling and decent long shots, you will be able to make some space and fire in shots at goal with ease.
He already has four goals and three assists this season.
Karim Adeyemi (OVR 71 - POT 85)
Karim Adeyemi has got in a lot of matches for such a young player, helped out massively with a loan move to FC Liefering to hone his trade.
The German is now back with parent club RB Salzburg and has netted 14 goals in 18 appearances, including three in the Champions League.
Oh, and did we mention he's quick...
Luca Netz (OVR 68 - POT 85)
Luca Netz is still trying to settle on a position, but what we do know is it will be on the left.
He has played at LB, LM and LW this season, popping up with a goal and an assist.
Armel Bella Kotchap (OVR 71 - POT 85)
A regular starter at CB for newly promoted VFL Bochum, Armel Bella Kotchap could become a towering defender.
At 6'3" he has great strength and speed to match his defensive nous.
He isn't the best on the ball, more of an old school CB.
Eric Martel (OVR 66 - POT 84)
Eric Martel has started every game for Austria Vienna this season and popped up with a couple of goals and assists.
He has a decent jump on him and is 6'2", so as a CDM can intercept balls over the top well.
Marton Dardai (OVR 69 - POT 83)
After playing a game at CDM there is still thinking Marton Dardai will end up there.
For now, he is settling in as a CB, with decent tackling and a good long pass in him.
Jan Thielmann (OVR 71 - POT 82)
A man that can play across the attacking line, Jan Thielmann may end up as a decent false-9.
He has very good movement stats but will be needing his technical abilities to pick up to match them.
Nnamdi Collins (OVR 60 - POT 82)
Nnamdi Collins is a pacey CB, with 83 Acceleration and 86 Sprint Speed.
Expect him to hit above 90 on both if you invest in your Career Mode, but he may lack other defensive attributes.
Malick Thiaw (OVR 68 - POT 81)
A tall and strong CB, Malick Thiaw won't be beaten in the air easily.
Expect him to develop into a solid defender, but not one that does well with the ball at his feet.
