7 Wonderkids Every Manager Should Sign in FC 24 Career Mode

What would the future of football look like without a broad talent of young players? Whether it’s real life or virtual gaming, you need to build a foundation of quality young players who will become the stars of tomorrow.

EA FC Sports 24 is brimming with options for those interested in creating a squad with youngsters. Wonderkids are an essential part of career mode and for you to be a superb manager, you need to scout out the best young players with high potentials and offer them long-term contracts. Paired with the best formations and tactics, these wonderkids could develop into world-class players.

But with plenty of scouting and searching required, it can be hard to find the best young players in Career Mode. So, we have decided to help you find the diamonds in the rough. These wonderkids have huge potentials to grow and are also affordable.

1. Youssoufa Moukoko – Striker

With a potential rating of 89, Manchester United forward Rasmus Hojlund is considered to be the best young striker in EA Sports FC 24. However, signing him in Career Mode will not be possible if you’re starting out with a club that does not boast financial muscles. As a result, you need to find a more affordable option, like Youssoufa Moukoko of Borussia Dortmund.

Moukoko shows a ton of promise for a teenager. The Germany international has a potential to reach an 87 rating, which is amazing. He’s got good pace, dribbling and is also excellent in front of goal.

2. Evan Ferguson – Striker

Another wonderkid to consider as a striker is Brighton’s Evan Ferguson. With a potential rating of 86, it would be fantastic to watch him develop at your club. He has been amazing in the Premier League so far, and it would be great to sign him as early as now since his price will definitely go higher.

3. Noah Lahmadi – Midfielder

Often overlooked by players, your midfield is absolutely vital in EA FC 24. I know you would love to pack your midfield with top youngsters such as Jamal Musiala, Jude Bellingham, Pedri and Pablo Gavi, but can you afford them?

Well, no need to worry because we got a cheaper fantastic option for you. With a potential to jump from 65 to 86, Noah Lahmadi would be an ideal choice for your midfield. Give the French wonderkid some time to develop and watch him lead your team to glory after a few seasons.

4. Paul Wanner – Midfielder

Currently, on loan at Elversberg, Paul Wanner is one of the most hyped Bayern Munich youngsters. He is just 17 and comes at an overall rating of 64 with a potential of 86. If well-developed, Wanner could follow in the footsteps of Jamal Musiala and lead your team to glory. But with his loan in place, you might have to wait until the second season before signing him.

5. Alex Balde – Defender

Alex Balde is certainly one to watch. The 19-year-old has an amazing pace of 91, which means he will be able to help you chase down quick attackers on the wing. Balde plays for FC Barcelona and currently has a rating of 81 with a potential to reach 89. He should be nice and easy to build around.

6. Antonio Silva – Defender

Antonio Joao Tavares Silva is another wonderkid you need to have in your defence. He recently turned 20 and has a rating of 78 with superb physical stats and amazing pace for a defender. Sign him now and watch him reach his potential of 88 in Career Mode.

7. Dennis Seimen – Goalkeeper

Goalkeeper is a position where you must never compromise, which is why you must have a quality talent for that role. Dennis Seimen could be a perfect choice to add to your team, considering his overall rating of 61 and the potential to reach 84. Give him playing time regularly, at least in cup competitions, and watch him turn into one of the best young keepers in FC 24.
