Read on to find out who the best French wonderkids are in FM22.
Defining French Wonderkids
As many of you will know, a wonderkid is a player under the age of 19 with a high potential ability.
France is going through somewhat of a golden generation, and their star doesn't look like fading any time soon.
You can get ahead of the crowd in FM22 and snap up some of these young talents before they become world-beaters.
Eduardo Camavinga (CA 136 - PA Range 170-200)
Position(s): M (C), DM
Club: Real Madrid
Value: £58-£74 million
Wage: £125,000 a week
The biggest wonderkid in the game this year, Eduardo Camavinga is the future of football.
His style and grace on the ball make him the envy of all, and his recent move to Real Madrid is certain to boost his stock even further.
Whilst you may have missed the boat to sign Camavinga as a youngster, there could be a chance to snap up the classy central midfielder in the future.
Tanguy Ninazou (CA 128 - PA Range 150-180)
Position(s): D (C), DM, M (C)
Club: Bayern Munich
Value: £28-£34 million
Wage: £66,000 a week
A dominant centre-half in the making, Tanguy Nianzou is a hot prospect that should be at the forefront of your mind when building your side in FM22.
Whilst Bayern may not be keen to let him go, surely a substantial offer would be enough?
Whatever it costs, we're certain that Nianzou will pay it back by winning trophies for your club.
Rayan Cherki (CA 112 - PA Range 150-180)
Position(s): AM (LCR), ST
Value: £12.5-£16.5 million
Wage: £16,500 a week
Rayan Cherki is a name that we will be hearing for many years to come, and a player that will cause you problems in FM22 if you don't sign him up quickly.
Destined to end up at one of Europe's elite, Cherki is a composed winger that can also operate through the centre, providing the versatility and dynamism that your team has been crying out for.
Lucien Agoume (CA 121 - PA Range 140-170)
Position(s): M (C), DM, AM (C)
Club: Brest (on loan from Inter)
Value: £15-£19 million
Wage: £6,000 a week
A powerful player that can do the work between both boxes, Lucien Agoume is getting game time away from parent club Inter.
If you bring him to your side expect to get someone with a good physical base but is needing to develop his technical skills.
Adil Aouchiche (CA 116 - PA Range 140-170)
Position(s): M (C), AM (C)
Club: AS Saint-Etienne
Value: £35-£43 million
Wage: £15,750 a week
It's probably best not to rely on Adil Aouchiche to do a defensive role in the middle of the pitch, as his attributes and work rate for that are quite low.
Where he does excel is on the ball around the box, finding the right crosses and passes to break down the opposition or taking on players himself.
Haissem Hassan (CA 116 - PA Range 140-170)
Position(s): AM (LR)
Club: Mirandes (on loan from Villarreal)
Value: £16-£25 million
Wage: £4,400 a week
If you need someone who can get some space on the edge of the box and put in a deadly cross, Haissem Hassan could be the man for you.
With top dribbling and agility, he can wiggle past players with ease, just don't expect him to get back and help the defence.
Koba Lein (CA 115 - PA Range 140-170)
Position(s): M (C)
Value: £9.2-£12 million
Wage: £3,200 a week
Koba Lein has plenty of training to do if he is to reach full potential, but he is a team player who will recover the ball well before setting up an attack.
With low balance and strength he may become pushed off the ball easily, so get him down the gym!
Timothee Pembele (CA 110 - PA Range 140-170)
Position(s): D (CR)
Club: Bordeaux (on loan from Paris Saint-Germain)
Value: £4.7-£7.4 million
Wage: £4,900 a week
A teenage sensation centre-back currently waiting to breakthrough at PSG, Timothee Pembele is a player that should be at the very top of your wishlist.
Strong, quick, and certain to grow into a star, can you whisk this young kid away from Paris and nurture him into France's next defensive rock?
El Chadaille Bitshiabu (CA 92 - PA Range 140-170)
Position(s): D (C)
Club: Paris Saint-Germain
Value: £4-£8.8 million
Wage: £675 a week
It's quite a mouthful, and you may not have heard of him, but El Chadaille Bitshiabu could be the rock at the back your team needs.
He is still very young so his development will need careful nurturing, but at 6'5" he can make sure crosses don't reach their destination.
Michael Olise (CA 127 - PA 155)
Position(s): AM (LCR)
Club: Crystal Palace
Value: £21-£34 million
Wage: £35,000 a week
A French wonderkid already strutting his stuff in the Premier League, Michael Olise is about to learn from one of the best midfielders to ever grace the game, Patrick Viera.
Another versatile option who can operate both centrally and out wide, Olise is a player that could easily grow into a Premier League star. Are you the manager that can help him realise his potential?
