What makes a wonderkid CM?

For a real wonderkid you have to be a teenager upon FIFA 22's release, so only players aged 19 or younger at the start of Career Mode will be included.


Pedri (OVR 81 – POT 91)

Age: 18


Club: Barcelona

Value: £46.4 million

Wage: £44k

Barcelona wonderkid Pedri tops the list of central midfield wonderkids, and it is easy to see why.

86 Stamina is a key attribute for any midfielder, and 86 Vision coupled with 85 Short Passing is a match made in heaven.

Ryan Gravenberch (OVR 78 – POT 90)

Age: 19


Club: Ajax

Value: £28.4 million

Wage: £9k

A proper box-to-box midfielder, Ryan Gravenberch’s 90 potential will make him one of the best players in the world.

One weakness of the Dutch wonderkid’s game is his 58 Heading Accuracy which is a bit strange given his 6’3” frame!

Jude Bellingham (OVR 78 – POT 89)

Age: 18


Club: Borussia Dortmund

Value: £31.8 million

Wage: £18k

England’s teenage prodigy Jude Bellingham is destined for the top, and if you have watched him play it is hard to believe he is still just 18 years old.

A potential of 89 makes Bellingham a top prospect in FIFA 22 Career Mode, so make sure to snap him up early before his value skyrockets.

Eduardo Camavinga (OVR 78 – POT 89)

Age: 18


Club: Real Madrid

Value: £25.4 million

Wage: £38k

Another teenage midfielder already strutting his stuff for one of Europe’s top clubs, Eduardo Camavinga is getting plenty of playtime at Real Madrid.

You won’t be able to sign him in the first season of Career Mode, so by the time you can sign him it will likely cost you upwards of £50 million.

Nicolo Rovella (OVR 70 – POT 87)

Age: 19


Club: Genoa (on loan from Juventus Piemonte Calcio)

Value: £3.5 million

Wage: £16k

Here is one player you may not have heard of before, Italian teenager Nicolo Rovella.

On loan at Genoa, Rovella is a technical midfielder who is excellent on the ball. Don’t expect him to weigh in with too many goals though as he has a rating of 40 Finishing.

Gavi (OVR 68 – POT 85)

Age: 16


Club: Barcelona

Value: £2.6 million

Wage: £4k

Remember the name. Spanish sensation Gavi has burst onto the scene this season with appearances for both Barcelona and Spain.

Technically proficient, you may need to set the right development plans to get more out of the Spanish teenager physically and in attacking play.

Charlie Patino (OVR 62 – POT 85)

Age: 17


Club: Arsenal

Value: £1 million

Wage: £2k

A central midfield player with more defensive tendencies, Arsenal youngster Charlie Patino looks set to make it to the very top.

His current stats are not going to stand out, but his 85 potential is sure worth keeping an eye on.

Aster Vranckx (OVR 67 – POT 85)

Age: 18


Club: Wolfsburg

Value: £2.2 million

Wage: £5k

Belgium is currently a hotbed for footballing talent, and Wolfsburg midfielder Aster Vranckx could be one of the next big Belgian stars.

74 Aggression and 73 Strength are Vranckx’s two highest attributes, but the 18-year-old is a more than capable ballplayer too.

Ilaix Moriba (OVR 73 – POT 85)

Age: 18


Club: RB Leipzig

Value: £6 million

Wage: £15k

It takes guts to leave Barcelona in search of first team action, but that is exactly what Spanish starlet Ilaix Moriba has done.

76 Short Passing is the teenager’s biggest asset, although he is also an excellent dribbler with an eye for goal.

Samuele Ricci (OVR 67 – POT 84)

Age: 19


Club: Empoli

Value: £2.2 million

Wage: £7k

Another future Italian star is Empoli midfielder Samuele Ricci who can reach 84 OVR in FIFA 22.

Ricci is solid in possession, and with the right development plans can become a brilliant deep-lying playmaker.
