Wonderkid Strikers

Let's set out our wonderkid parameters and look at players who are under the age of 21 and have a PA (potential ability) range of over 130.

With options included for clubs of differing budgets, you're sure to find the right striker for you in this list.

Yousouffa Moukoko (PA 170-200)

Age: 16

Club: Borussia Dortmund

Value: £1.1 Million

One of the most talked-about players in FM21, Moukoko is back with a vengeance in this year's game.

Pacey, dynamic, and with a maximum potential ability, how can you go wrong? However, you'll have to make a decent offer if Dortmund are to part with their young starlet.

Myron Boadu (PA 150-180)

Age: 20

Club: Monaco

Value: £7.8 Million

The Dutch have an excellent record of producing top talent, and Boadu is no different.

The dynamic poacher may have recently moved to Monaco, but that doesn't mean that you can't keep one eye on his development with a view to potential move in the future.

Karim Adeyemi (PA 150-180)

Age: 19

Club: Red Bull Salzburg

Value: £1.6 Million

The Salzburg striker has an excellent range of dribbling and shooting statistics that makes him a must-have for all top clubs in FM22.

Whether you're looking to the future, or needing an immediate impact, all signs should point to Adeyemi

Pietro Pellegri (PA 140-170)

Age: 20

Club: Monaco

Value: £2 Million

Another star in Monaco's ranks, Pellegri is a classic centre-forward with bags of potential.

If you're looking for a target man to lead the line in FM22, the Italian is certainly the man to do just that. His finishing stats are already high, and his ability is only set to increase.

Joshua Zirkzee (PA 150-180)

Age: 20

Club: Bayern Munich

Value: £2 Million

Bayern Munich know their onions when it comes to young talents, and Zirkzee doesn't buck that trend.

Whether you're opting for an ambitious swoop or seeking a loan deal, could you be the manager that helps the Dutchman realise his potential?

Joe Gelhardt (PA 130-160)

Age: 19

Club: Leeds United

Value: £500,000

We all love an English wonderkid, and Gelhardt could well be a future Premier League golden boot winner in FM22.

With a great range of physical and mental stats, Gelhardt has all the capabilities to become a top-class striker.

He would also be a handy loan option for any Football League sides.

Dane Scarlett (PA 130-160)

Age: 17

Club: Tottenham

Age: 18

Club: Barcelona

Value: £60 Million

We've gone back to the big guns, and there is no prospect bigger than Ansu Fati.

Fabio Silva (PA 150-180)

Age: 19

Club: Wolves

Things may have become a little stagnant for the Wolves striker, but there's still plenty of time for you to revive his career.

With a superb first-touch an and incredible array of physical attributes for someone of his age, Silva certainly has the potential to go right to the very top.
