Wonderkids are the lifeblood of any FM save and this year is no different.

Forget Chiellini and Bonucci, Scalvini is the man that will dominate the Italian defence for years to come.
One of the best defensive wonderkids in FM23, this is the man that you need to sign before the big boys come calling.
The man that could be beside Scalvini at the centre of defence is Verona defender Diego Coppola.
Only 18, but already showing signs of stardom, Coppola is a man that could become a true star in this year's game.
