Wonderkid Left Midfielders

Just for clarity, we are looking at any player who is listed as playing as either LM or AML

Only those who are aged 19 or younger will feature in this list.

Pedri

Age: 17

Club: FC Barcelona

Value: £7.75M

It's been a slow start to life at Barcelona for the Spanish teenager, but he remains one of the hottest youngsters in FM21 nonetheless.

The Spaniard is listed as a Breakthrough Prospect at the Camp Nou and, having only just signed for the club on a deal until 2024, he may be hard to prise away.

Ansu Fati

Age: 17

Club: FC Barcelona

Value: £21.5M

They may be going through some tough times at the minute, but the future at Barcelona is bright!

Opting to take charge of the Spanish giants will bring you not one, but two of the hottest wonderkids in FM21. Not to forget a certain Argentinian...

Rodrygo

Rodrygo FM21

Age: 19

Club: Real Madrid

Value: £6.0M

Alternatively, you can try hoping across to Barcelona's rivals Real Madrid.

Brazilian Rodrygo has been tipped for a breakthrough for a couple of years now but has never really broken through, with a value of £6M, he could be a risk worth taking.

Jeremy Doku

Age: 18

Club: Rennes

Value: £1.0M

If you're looking for a versatile youngster to boost your attacking lineup, then Jeremy Doku is great shout.

The Belgian has been linked some big name clubs - including Liverpool - so this might be your last chance to grab the Rennes man at a cut price!

Curtis Jones

Age: 19

Club: Liverpool

Value: £7.5M

Speaking of Liverpool, they have a couple of pretty promising youngsters of their own!

Curtis Jones is one of them. His £7.5M valuation is pretty steep and, as a Liverpool lad, it could be hard to persuade him to leave his boyhood club.

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Age: 19

Club: Chelsea

Value: £26M

Callum Hudson-Odoi's career has stalled somewhat after breaking onto the scene a couple of seasons ago.

He remains one of the highest potential teenagers on FM21, but he has an eye watering £26M valuation. There are better alternatives in this list if you can persuade them to jump ship.

Naci Unuvar

Age: 17

Club: Ajax

Value: £170k

If you're not after someone to light up your side instantly, then Future Prospect Naci Unuvar is worth looking into.

The Dutchman is valued at just £170k with a wage of just £950p/w. He's coming out of the Ajax youth set up too, which can only be a good thing!

Bukayo Saka

Bukayo Saka FM21

Age: 18

Club: Arsenal

Value: £26M

He's been one of the breakthrough youngsters in the Premier League over the last 12 months, and his ability has been reflected in FM21.

Unfortunately, so has his value. £26M is a lot to fork out, but his potential to grow is unquestionable. An expensive risk, but one which could pay off.

Emile Smith Rowe

Smith Rowe FM21

Age: 19

Club: Arsenal

Value: £13M

As we have already seen with FC Barcelona, Arsenal have some serious talent coming through the ranks.

Emile Smith Rowe offers a cheaper alternative to Bukayo Saka if you're wanting to deal with the Gunners. But why not take charge and have both?

Oscar Aranda

Aranda FM21x

Age: 18

Club: Real Madrid

Value: £16.25k

We know that Real Madrid have history for producing some of the best youngsters in FM history, so here's a chancer for you.

18-year-old Oscar Aranda has a value of just £16.25k - which is less than most players weekly wages - he could turn out to be the bargain of the century in the right side.
