All the Best Young Right Backs

There's nothing better than picking up a young talent and transforming them into a world beater.

Here are the best young right-backs to pick up if you want to do exactly that!

Best Young Right Backs

We have already looked at the best wonderkid right backs - a few of which will appear in this piece - with that being all the best teenagers in this set position.

Young DR is slightly different, this features anyone 23 or younger which means you'll see a few more experienced names in the mix!

Sergino Dest (CA 132 - PA Range 140-170)

Dest FM21

Age: 19

Position: DR, WBR, DL, WBL, MR

Club: Barcelona

Value: £10M

Sergino Dest has been up at the top of these lists for the past couple of editions of FM, and FM21 is no different.

The American is at the Camp Nou with Barcelona this year, and his value has increased as a result. Although, with a PA Range of 140-170, that £10M valuation could prove to be a drop in the ocean in years to come.

Age: 19

Position: DR, WBR, DL, WBL

Club: Hamburger SV

Value: £550k

Now this is a player who could well prove to be one of the bargains of FM21!

The German youngster is valued at just £550k, has the ability to play on the left or the right and has some blistering pace! A PA Range of 140-170 makes him a must-buy in FM21.

Tomas Esteves (CA 113 - PA Range 140-170)

Esteves FM21

Age: 19

Position: DR, WBR

Club: FCP

Value: £500k

Another bargain right back in terms of their potential is current Reading loanee Tomas Esteves.

The Portuguese youngster will spend the first season of your save on loan at Championship side Reading, but once that loan spell is up we'd recommend sending those scouts out to look at him.

Reece James (CA 141 - PA 168)

Reece James FM21

Age: 20

Position: DR, WBR, MC

Club: Chelsea

Value: £25.5M

England are blessed with a plethora of talent on the right hand side of their defence, including Reece James.

The Chelsea youngster has the versatility to play comfortably at right back or central midfield whilst he can also sit in at centre back or left back if need be.

Should he hit that fixed PA of 168, James would become one of the best fullbacks around.

Tariq Lamptey (CA 135 - PA 165)

Age: 19

Position: DR, WBR, DL, WBL

Club: Brighton & Hove Albion

Value: £25.5M

Reece James' form was essentially what lead Tariq Lamptey to move on from Chelsea in search of first team football.

The Englishman has found his feet quickly at Brighton, showcasing his outstanding ability in the early stages of this season, with FM agreeing with the hype and setting him a fixed potential of 165.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (CA 148 - PA 162)

Wan-Bissaka FM21

Age: 22


Club: Manchester United

Value: £49.5M

Another top quality young English defender is Manchester United's Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 22-year old's defensive ability is one of the best in the Premier League - highlighted by that 20-rated tackling - and he'll only get better with a fixed PA of 162.

That £49.5M valuation will be enough to put off most though, there is better (and cheaper) alternatives out there.

Dodo (CA 140 - PA 160)

Dodo FM21

Age: 21

Position: DR, WBR

Club: Shakhtar Donetsk

Value: £3.1M

The final name in the list is an out and out right back in the form of Brazilian youngster Dodo.

The Shakhtar Donetsk man requires some further scouting in order to unlock his full range of statistics, but thanks to the FM Editor we know that he has the potential to jump to a tasty 160-rated ability.
