Best Young Strikers

We've covered wonderkids and the best overall strikers in FM22, but it's also important to take a look at the player that sit between the rankings.

Currently between the ages of 20-23, these young strikers already have enough talent to do a job for your team, as well as possessing a high potential that could see them become superstars.

Erling Haaland (CA 177 - PA 190)

Value: £80 million

Wage: £130,000 a week

The obvious superstar on this list, Haaland is a player that every single FM22 player will want to get their hands on.

His incredible goal scoring ability is unrivalled, and he still has room to grow. With an enticing release clause activated in 2022, will you be the manager that causes the biggest transfer story of the summer?

Kylian Mbappe (CA 184 - PA 196)

Value: £90 million

Wage: £425,000 a week

It's not often that Mbappe gets second billing, but it's understandable when you compare him to the pure goal-scoring class of Haaland.

Mbappe has his own positives this year, with his contract dispute at PSG potentially leaving him open to a free transfer at the end of the season. Just like Haaland, you won't be alone in swooping for this superstar in FM22.

Donyell Malen (CA 140 - PA 160)

Wage: £66,000 a week

Recently transferred to Europe's home for talented wonderkids, Donyell Malen is ready to shine at Borussia Dortmund.

We wouldn't be surprised if the Dutchman starts ripping it up in Germany, so be sure to keep an eye on his development before another top club takes him to the next level.

Alexander Isak (CA 151/166)

Value: £9 million

Wage: £45,000 a week

Sweden's next striking sensation, Isak is a player that has all the credentials to become one of Europe's best strikers.

Currently plying his trade in Spain, Isak could be due another step up the ladder if he succeeds at Sociedad. Could you be the manager that helps this Swede emulate a certain charismatic striker from the same nation?

Dusan Vlahovic (CA 148 - PA 173)

Value: £10 million

Wage: £24,500 a week

A player that Manchester City looked at after failing to land Harry Kane, Vlahovic is one of the top young strikers in the world.

A natural finisher with tons of potential, the Serbian looks destined to depart Fiorentina sooner rather than later. Could you bring him to your club and let him shine?

Tammy Abraham (CA 152 - PA 165)

Value: £40 million

Wage: £110,000 a week

Recently transferred to Roma to ply his trade under Mourinho, Abraham looks set for a season of dominance.

Leading the line for a big club will only serve to improve his development, with the striker one day destined to return to England and succeed. We're predicting golden boots for Tammy in FM22, can you be the manager that helps him achieve it?

Victor Osimhen (CA 156 - PA 171)

Wage: £110,000 a week

An all-rounder already receiving rave reviews, Osimhen could easily become one of Europe's top marksmen in the next 2 years.

Top clubs are already sniffing around so you'll have to act fast, but any investment in the Nigerian striker is certain to lead to success in Football Manager 2022.

Moise Kean (CA 144 - PA 168)

Value: £30 million

Wage: £62,000 a week

It may not have worked out at Everton, but Kean has returned to Juventus - or Zebre as they're known in FM22 - with a point to prove.

A talented striker who requires some development, Kean is a rough diamond that you could turn into a dangerous poacher. It's a risk, but one we believe will be well worth taking.

Patson Daka (CA 139 - PA 155)

After ripping it up at RB Salzburg, Daka has earned his big move to the Premier League. Now looking to make a splash in England's top flight, it's worth keeping an eye on how this young striker develops.

He has the potential to go to the very top, will you be the manager that can take him there?

Jonathan David (CA 139 - PA 155)

A pacey, prolific, and highly dangerous Canadian striker who has been terrorising defenders for years, Jonathan David has graduated from his wonderkid status.

Now a fully-fledged goal-scoring machine, taking advantage of Lille's tight purse strings could see you land one of the best strikers in FM22.
