Read on to find out who the best young AMC's to sign in FM22 are.

Best Young AMCs

Not as fresh faced as wonderkids, we're classing 'young' as players 23 or under on your first FM22 save.

From ready-made stars to players waiting to make their breakthroughs, there's something in this list for everyone. Just make sure you swoop in before another European titan gets there first.

MOUNT AN ATTACK - Mason can take the game to the opposition

Age: 22

Club: Chelsea

Value: £70-£108 million

Wage: £77,000 a week

Already billed as the next Frank Lampard, and destined to become Chelsea's captain, Mason Mount is a player that oozes class.

Whether you're attempting to prize him away from London or simply turning Chelsea into world-beaters, Mount should be at the forefront of your mind.

TOP KAI - Havertz is already a top talent and will keep getting better

Age: 22

Club: Chelsea

Value: Not for sale

Wage: £150,000 a week

A Premier League superstar with all the attributes to become a modern legend, Kai Havertz has already conquered the Champions League.

His stock is as high as ever, but his first Premier League season wasn't ideal. Still, Chelsea will not want to get rid of their young talent.

Joao Felix (CA 159 - PA 177)

MONEY MAN - There has already been one massive fee paid for Felix

Age: 21

Club: Atletico Madrid

Value: £79-£121 million

Wage: £155,000 a week

A big-money move to Atletico Madrid hasn't seen Joao Felix move on to the next level, but he is still a very talented player.


It will take another hefty bid to bring him to your club, but you could be the manager to get the best out of the Portuguese.

Pedri (CA 155 - PA 175)

BARCA'S SAVIOR - Pedri is another young gun Barcelona are resting their hopes on

Age: 18

Club: Barcelona

Value: £68-£87 million

Wage: £66,000

The Barcelona hotshot with a release clause worth £1 billion, Pedri could be the biggest wonderkid in FM22.

His versatility across a number of attacking positions puts him in a league of his own this year.

If you get the chance to sign him, you simply can't pass it up.

Phil Foden (CA 155 - PA 175)

CITY SLICKER - Foden is playing some class football at the moment

Age: 21

Club: Manchester City

Value: £50-£77 million

Wage: £120,000 a week

From Pep's pet project to the Gascoigne hairstyle at Euro 2020, Phil Foden has certainly risen to stardom over the past few years.

Destined to win multiple personal accolades, and with many trophies already in his locker, Foden is unlikely to depart the Etihad.

Never say never, but there is no doubting that Foden will be one of the stars of FM22.

Martin Odegaard (CA 155 - PA 178)

REAL DEAL - Odegaard is one young talent Arsenal are building around

Age: 22

Club: Arsenal

Value: £94-£114 million

Wage: £115,000 a week

Arsenal seems to have captured one of the signings of the summer when they snatched former wonderkid Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid.

An incredible player with a wand-like left foot, the Norwegian attacking midfielder could be the man to lead Arsenal back to glory. Could you be the manager that helps him achieve that goal?

Dani Olmo (CA 152 - PA 166)

OH NO, IT'S DANI - Olmo will strike fear into defences

Age: 23

Club: RB Leipzig

Value: £45-£69 million

Wage: £66,000 a week

Dani Olmo is back to terrorise oppositions defences in FM22 with killer passes and incredible dribbling stats.

A Spanish midfielder with a ton of class doesn't exactly subvert stereotypes, but there's nothing typical about Leipzig's star. He's quick and clever, and he needs to be in your team.

Pedro Goncalves (CA 151 - PA 161)

AWARDS SEASON - Pedro Goncalves will want to add to his team and individual accolades

Age: 23

Club: Sporting CP

Value: £34-£42 million

Wage: £21,500 a week


Finishing as the Premiera Liga top scorer, included in the Premiera Liga Team of the Season, and picking up Premiera Liga Best Young Player for the second year in a row, Pedro Goncalves is making a mark in Portugal.

Bring him to your squad and he should guarantee you goals, with top dribbling to get into the box and supreme finishing once he gets there.

Nicolo Zaniolo (CA 150 - PA 171)

PACE AND POWER - Zaniolo can power past defenders

Age: 22

Club: Roma

Value: £50-£61 million

Wage: £76,000 a week

Jose Mourinho might be reluctant to let go of his Italian rising star, but we reckon a big offer could take Nicolo Zaniolo away from Rome.

A pass master with a decent burst of pace, Zaniolo is ready-made to succeed at the highest level in any of Europe's top leagues. It's up to you to take him there and help him realise his potential.

Dejan Kulusevski (CA 148 - PA 170)

Value: £55-£83 million

Wage: £76,000 a week

Dejan Kulusevski has top passing and vision to find the most deadly ball.

He is also very versatile, able to excel on the right, as well as fill in on the left, as a centre mid, or a striker.
