Football Manager 2023: Five WONDERKIDS set for major boosts following big-money moves

Football Manager 2023 isn't far away, with our first details regarding the new game likely to be revealed in the coming months.

With that in mind, we want to take a look at five wonderkids that will almost certainly be set for a boost this year following major real-life moves.

From certified wonderkids to rising stars, these are the players you need to be scouting at the start of your FM23 save.

Karim Adeyemi

The highest-profile wonderkid to move this summer is Karim Adeyemi, with the German starlet swapping Salzburg for Dortmund.

A major move for the youngster, who will now look to fill the hole left by Erling Haaland.

CERTIFIED STAR - Karim Adeyemi is only set to grow in FM23

With Adeyemi already possessing a great potential rating in Football Manager 2022, that metric is only set to rise once this year's game rolls around.

Armel Bella-Kotchap

Another FIFA 22 wonderkid that has joined Southampton, Armel Bella-Kotchap's move to the South coast is an incredibly exciting one.

A dominating defender who could form quite the partnership with Mohamed Salisu, we're excited to see how this Southampton side performs next season.

Likely to receive a rating boost and be one of the best wonderkids in Football Manager 2023, Bella-Kotchap's name is one you'll be hearing plenty of this season.

Aurélien Tchouaméni

Real Madrid have wasted no time in securing another French wonderkid midfielder, with Tchouaméni this time making the switch from Monaco.

A gifted midfielder with the world at his feet, his potential partnership with Eduardo Camavinga could prove vital as Madrid moves forward.

A certified wonderkid already, we're excited to see just how high this Frenchman can fly in FM23.

Gavin Bazunu

Following a strong season out on loan at Portsmouth, Man City prospect Gavin Bazunu has opted to depart the Etihad on a permanent basis and sign for Southampton.

With hopes of becoming a regular starter for the Saints, there's every chance that Bazunu could realise his full potential on the South coast.

A terrific shot-stopper with plenty of promise, we think Bazunu is one to watch in Football Manager 2023.

Xavi Simons

A surprising move that could see the Dutchman explode into one of the best midfielders in FM23, Xavi Simons has swapped PSG for PSV and made a permanent move away from the French capital.
