Club: Stade Rennais FC

Value: £20M

Eduardo Camavinga may just be 17-years-old, but he is a MUST HAVE signing on FM21 this year.

The Frenchman was the only player in this year's sim to have a PA range of 170-200 before Youssoufa Moukoko arrived. You may baulk at the £20M valuation but trust us, you won't regret it.

Pedri (CA 143 - PA 160-190)

Wage: £35,000 per week

Another name that we'll be talking about come the end of FM21 is Barcelona's Pedri.

The Spaniard is held in high regard by the higher powers at the Camp Nou, so getting hold of him won't be easy. But his versatility and high potential make him one to go all out for.

Ilaix Moriba (CA 125 - PA 160-190)

Club: FC Barcelona

Best Attributes: 16-20 flair, 14-19 vision, 13-19 dribbling

Value: £3.2M

Wage: £11,500 per week

Barcelona's academy is one of the greatest in the world, so it should come as no surprise to see two central midfielders in this list.

Ilaix Moriba may not have the starting ability of Pedri, but if you're willing to take a hit on the CA in order to save a bit of cash, then Moriba is certainly one to look at.

Yusuf Demir (CA 112 - PA 160-190)

Best Attributes: 16-20 determination, 12-18 passing, 11-17 natural fitness

Value: £825k

Wage: £625 per week

A potential bargain for those who are after an attacking-minded midfielder!

17-year-old Yusuf Demir has a similar ceiling in terms of potential as some of the 'bigger' names on this list, but at a fraction of the price.

His ability to play out and out striker will be a big boost to those who are struggling to find the back of the net!

Gabriel Menino (CA 133 - PA 168)

Club: SEP

Best Attributes: 16-20 determination, 15-20 natural fitness, 12-19 tackling

Value: £5.75M

Wage: £17,500 per week

Brazilian Gabriel Menino is listed as a full-back in his media description, but he's anything but.

The SEP youngster can play right-back, defensive midfield or central midfield - in a Joao Cancelo-esque role - which bodes well for those who need a versatile youngster.

He won't grab a tonne of goals, but he'll do the nitty gritty.

Dominik Szoboszlai (CA 140 - PA 150-180)

Club: RB Salzburg

Best Attributes: 17-20 pace, 14-18 corners, 14-18 teamwork

Value: £9.5M

Wage: £22,500 per week

If you're after a pacey central midfielder to leave the opposition in their wake then look no further.

Salzburg's Dominik Szoboszlai has gas to burn (16-20 pace) and despite being just 19-years-old, the Hungarian already has international experience which should stand him in good stead for a move to one of Europe's elite clubs.

Salzburg will be reluctant to let him go, but he's worth going after if you can pick him up for the right price!

Giovanni Reyna (CA 135 - PA 150-180)

Club: Borussia Dortmund

Best Attributes: 14-20 agility, 14-20 off the ball, 14-20 dribbling

Value: £5M

Wage: £44,000 per week

Giovanni Reyna has burst his way onto the scene this season, and there are no indications he'll be leaving anytime soon.

The American attacking midfielder has great ability on the ball, but his efforts off the ball make him even better.

His value will undoubtedly go up as your save progresses. Act fast whilst you can.

Ryan Gravenberch (CA 134 - PA 150-180)

JACK OF ALL TRADES - DM, CM, AM. You name it

Age: 18

Club: Ajax

Best Attributes: 14-19 first touch, 14-19 determination, 14-18 passing

Value: £7.75M

Wage: £52,000 per week

Now if we're talking versatility across the centre of the park, then Ryan Gravenberch is a name we must mention.

The Ajax youngster is most comfortable at either centre midfield or attacking midfield but he can equally drop deeper if need be which is a great outlet to have if you're clinging on to a one-goal advantage!

Ajax is known for developing some incredible young talent, and it looks as though Gravenberch could be their next big-money departure.

Jude Bellingham (CA 131 - PA 150-180)

FUTURE STAR - Bellingham has been tipped for big things

Club: Borussia Dortmund

Best Attributes: 14-19 teamwork, 13-19 agility, 13-19 dribbling

Value: £4.2M

Wage: £52,000 per week

Dortmund's incredible transfer strategy struck again this summer, as they picked up the highly sought after Jude Bellingham.

The Englishman joins fellow young talents Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Haaland at the Signal Iduna Park.

He's only just signed so you won't be able to pick him up straight away. A Dortmund save could work though?

Mohamed Ihattaren (CA 130 - PA 150-180)

Value: £5.5M

Wage: £5,250 per week

The final name in the list is another player coming from a side famed for producing young talent, PSV's Mohamed Ihattaren.

One for those after an attacking midfielder to run at defenders, Ihattaren is comfortable on the left, right or through the middle and whilst he's not got the best ability from the get-go, his potential is undeniable.
