Potential wonderkids for FM22 Part 1

One of the most interesting things with FM every year is who the biggest wonderkids are. Every year we discover someone new and from a strange kind of connection to them. In FM21 Youssuofa Moukoko came late, but with enough time to undoudelty be the biggest wonderkid of them all. Maybe even the biggest ever?

Who to look out for in FM22?
As always it’s hard to predict who will be the biggest wonderkids, other than the obvious ones. I would guess 99% of all FM gamers are aware of the youth players who already made their mark on senior football. Therefore I’ve tried to come up with someone other than Pedri, Camavinga and Moukoko.

#GK Dogan Alemdar (2002) – Kayserispor – Turkey
Signed his first pro contract at 15 and became Kayserispors youngest ever captain at 17. At 18 he has already played 18 times in the Süper lig and made 9 clean sheets. That’s not your average goalkeeper at 18, let that be certain. Destined for big things in the future.
PA Prediction: -8

#AM Luka Romero (2004) – Lazio – Argentina
The youngest ever player in La Liga should be an obvious one, but he’s never been on FM before. It’s fair to say he should have a high potential rating, but just how high should it be? Signed for Lazio this summer, so it would be hard to get his hands at the start of the game. Packed with flair, vision and skills he’s a must-have in every wonderkid-shortlist.
PA Prediction: -8

#AML Andreas Schjelderup (2004) – Nordsjaelland – Norway
Left his home country and boyhood club on a free transfer for Denmark last summer. After half a season with the U19’s, he was promoted to the first team last winter. Originally a central midfielder he played mostly from the left-wing in his first season and did it with big success. He’s the youngest to ever score two goals in a Superliga game and Nordsjaellands youngest ever goalscorer. It will surely be exciting to see how highly rated he is in FM22. He should be fairly cheap for the bigger clubs budgets.
PA Prediction: -8

#CM Zidan Sertdemir (2005) – Leverkusen – Denmark
Another one from Nordsjaelland famous academy, who left this summer for Bayer Leverkusen. Leverkusen paid over £2m for him and that’s quite the testament to his talent. He also spent the summer with the first team in Germany. Described as a left-footed playmaker with a good physique, he should be one to watch for in FM22.
PA Prediction: –75

#AM Mario Stroeykens (2004) – Anderlecht – Belgium
A new mega-talent from the talent factory in Belgium. Stroeyens is a technically gifted attacking midfielder who can also play as a striker. Good with both feet and blessed with great speed he’s already made his debut for Anderlecht at 16. A month too young to make it in last years FM, he should be up there with the best wonderkids in FM22. Future world-beater if he develops the right mental stats.
PA Prediction: –9

#CM Sidney Raebiger (2005) – RB Leipzig – Germany
Leipzig’s youngest ever debutant when he made his debut in the DFP-Pokal this month. Still a pretty unknown player regardings his strengths and weaknesses, especially because of the lack of youth games in Germany last season. Anyhow that is also the reason Nagelsmann brought him up to train with the first team this spring. Hard to say how good he is at the moment, but certainly, a one to watch for the future.
PA Prediction: -8

#CB Noah Mbamba (2005) – Club Brugge – Belgium
Made his debut for Club Brugge in the last game of the season last year and came from the bench in the three first games this season. A physical beast for his age with a good first touch and a good right foot. He looks like a modern defender who can bring the ball out from the back.
PA Prediction: -85

#AML Antonio Nusa (2005) – Stabaek – Norway The second Norwegian on this list. Norway has a habit of giving us wonderkids on FM and I guess that we will not be let down this year either.
A skilful winger with a good shot he already made his mark in the Elitserien this year with 3 goals in 8 games so far. Good with both feet and can play off both wings. He’s destined for bigger things and he will not be long in Norway before the big clubs come knocking. Should be fairly cheap in FM22 and a must-have.
PA Prediction: -8

#AMR Ângelo Gabriel (2004) – Santos – Brazil
The second youngest debutant for Santos behind Coutinho, and the youngest ever goalscorer in the Copa Libertadores. A right-winger or striker he fires away with his left foot. A wonderful dribbler with pace and a lot of flair you have your prototype Brazilian and Santos wonderkid. Based on the hype around him he will be one of the best in FM22.
PA Prediction: –9

#ST Sergey Pinyaev (2004) – KS Samara – Russia
Another one who changed club this summer. Look Man Utd bound for years, but due to Brexit, it may have been impossible to bring him to the academy before he turns 18. The youngest ever to score in the FNL at 15. Made his debut for Russia U16 at 13 years old and have been known as a big talent for many years already. Great technique, a lot of flair and decent pace make him a difficult player to defend against. Can play of all the attacking positions. He’s definitively one of the wonderkids I look most forward to seeing in FM22.
PA Prediction: -85
