The Best Wonderkids in Football Manager 2022

The FM22 beta is now live and with that comes a whole host of fantastic new wonderkids ready to propel your squad to Champion’s League glory.

A big part of the Football Manager appeal is in developing the best young players and that hasn’t changed with Football Manager 2022, which has some of the best wonderkids we’ve seen in years!

With a jam-packed database it can be difficult to find the very best young talent but fortunately for you, we’ve put together a list of our favourite wonderkids!

Goalkeepers

Pepe Bonet is an ideal signing in FM22, and he can grow to become your future number one Goalkeeper

The Goalkeeper Position in FM22 is more than just a shot-stopper. He’s a tactical watchtower holding the fort. He’s a dominating presence at the back who oversees your entire defensive structure and arguably, the first name on the team sheet. We’ve put together our seven favourite GK wonderkids in Football Manager 2022.

<table class="tableizer-table"><thead><tr class="tableizer-firstrow"><th>Name</th><th>Position</th><th>Club</th><th>Nationality</th><th>Age</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td>Pepe Bonet</td><td>GK</td><td>Rennes 2</td><td>DR Congolese</td><td>18</td></tr><tr><td>Gianluca Saro</td><td>GK</td><td>FC Crotone</td><td>Italian</td><td>21</td></tr><tr><td>Archie Mair</td><td>GK</td><td>Lincoln City</td><td>Scottish</td><td>20</td></tr><tr><td>Ivan Martinez</td><td>GK</td><td>Castellon</td><td>Spanish</td><td>19</td></tr><tr><td>Rick Jonkers</td><td>GK</td><td>PSV</td><td>Dutch</td><td>17</td></tr><tr><td>Radoslaw Majecki</td><td>GK</td><td>AS Monaco</td><td>Polish</td><td>21</td></tr><tr><td>Peder Hoel Lervik</td><td>GK</td><td>Molde FK</td><td>Norwegian</td><td>16</td></tr></tbody></table>

Defenders

Owen Wijndal is a left-sided powerhouse perfectly suited for any squad with his versatile skillset.

Keeping a clean sheet is incredibly important, which is why it’s imperative that you spend some time developing a solid defence. Having a strong defence isn’t just useful for keeping clean sheets though, especially if you utilise some of the new roles like Wide Centre-Backs, which can provide a potent attacking threat. Here are some of the best young defenders in FM22.

<table class="tableizer-table"><thead><tr class="tableizer-firstrow"><th>Name</th><th>Position</th><th>Club</th><th>Nationality</th><th>Age</th></tr></thead><tbody> <tr><td>Owen Wijndal</td><td>LB</td><td>AZ</td><td>Dutch</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Tino Livramento</td><td>RB</td><td>Southampton</td><td>English</td><td>18</td></tr> <tr><td>Maxence Lacroix</td><td>CB</td><td>Wolfsburg</td><td>French</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Ozan Kabak</td><td>CB</td><td>Norwich City</td><td>Turkish</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Jorge Cuenca</td><td>CB</td><td>Getafe</td><td>Spanish</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Noah Mbamba</td><td>CB</td><td>Club Brugge</td><td>Belgian</td><td>16</td></tr> <tr><td>Yan Couto</td><td>RB</td><td>SC Braga</td><td>Brazilian</td><td>19</td></tr> <tr><td>Juan Miranda</td><td>LB</td><td>Real Betis</td><td>Spanish</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Issa Kabore</td><td>RB</td><td>Troyes AC</td><td>Burkino Faso</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Amandou Dante</td><td>LB</td><td>Sturm Graz</td><td>Malian</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Yerson Mosquera</td><td>CB</td><td>Wolves</td><td>Colombian</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Omar Rekik</td><td>CB</td><td>Arsenal</td><td>Tunisian</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Strahinja Pavlovic</td><td>CB</td><td>Monaco</td><td>Serbian</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Daniel Ballard</td><td>CB</td><td>Millwall</td><td>Northern Irish</td><td>21</td></tr></tbody></table>

Midfielders

Borussia Dortmund starlet Reinier is incredibly talented in FM22

The midfield in Football Manager 2022 is where most of the magic tends to happen. Whether you’re playing Tiki-Taka tactics and keeping possession or utilising a Deep-Lying Playmaker to launch brutal counter attacks. It’s an area that you’ll want to focus on if you’re aiming big. Here are some of the best young midfielders in FM22.

<table class="tableizer-table"><thead><tr class="tableizer-firstrow"><th>Name</th><th>Position</th><th>Club</th><th>Nationality</th><th>Age</th></tr></thead><tbody> <tr><td>Reinier</td><td>AM</td><td>Borussia Dortmund</td><td>Brazilian</td><td>19</td></tr> <tr><td>Albert Sambi Lokonga</td><td>CM</td><td>Arsenal</td><td>Belgian</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Gavi</td><td>DM</td><td>Barcelona</td><td>Spanish</td><td>16</td></tr> <tr><td>Nicolo Rovella</td><td>DM</td><td>Genoa</td><td>Italian</td><td>19</td></tr> <tr><td>Conor Gallagher</td><td>MC</td><td>Crystal Palace</td><td>English</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Oliver Skipp</td><td>DM</td><td>Tottenham Hotspur</td><td>English</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Hannibal</td><td>MC</td><td>Manchester Utd</td><td>Tunisian</td><td>18</td></tr> <tr><td>Rayan Cherki</td><td>AM</td><td>Lyon</td><td>French</td><td>17</td></tr> <tr><td>James Garner</td><td>DM</td><td>Nottingham Forest</td><td>English</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Riqui Puig</td><td>MC</td><td>Barcelona</td><td>Spanish</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Romeo Lavia</td><td>DM</td><td>Manchester City</td><td>Belgian</td><td>17</td></tr> <tr><td>Nicolas Raskin</td><td>CM</td><td>Standard Liege</td><td>Belgian</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Patrick De Paula</td><td>DM</td><td>Palmeiras</td><td>Brazilian</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Jensen Weir</td><td>CM</td><td>Cambridge Utd</td><td>Scottish</td><td>19</td></tr></tbody></table>

Attackers

The obvious one: Erling Haaland is a machine in FM22

Attackers win you games, and yes, sometimes it’s single-handedly, so spend big in this area if you’re lacking in the goals department. You’re looking for pacey, tricky wingers and strikers who have great off-the-ball movement, and we’ve found the best youngsters with these traits in Football Manager 2022.

<table class="tableizer-table"><thead><tr class="tableizer-firstrow"><th>Name</th><th>Position</th><th>Club</th><th>Nationality</th><th>Age</th></tr></thead><tbody> <tr><td>Erling Haaland</td><td>ST</td><td>Borussia Dortmund</td><td>Norwegian</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Jonathon David</td><td>LW</td><td>Lille</td><td>Canadian</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Dusan Vlahovic</td><td>ST</td><td>Fiorentina</td><td>Serbian</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Jeremy Doku</td><td>LW</td><td>Stade Rennais</td><td>Belgian</td><td>19</td></tr> <tr><td>Joel Piroe</td><td>ST</td><td>Swansea City</td><td>Dutch</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Sekou Mara</td><td>ST</td><td>Bordeaux</td><td>French</td><td>18</td></tr> <tr><td>Caio Rosa</td><td>LW</td><td>Sharjah</td><td>Brazilian</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Tete</td><td>RW</td><td>Shakhtar Donetsk</td><td>Brazilian</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Kang-In Lee</td><td>RW</td><td>Mallorca</td><td>Korean</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Nico Serrano</td><td>LW</td><td>Athletic Bilbao</td><td>Spanish</td><td>18</td></tr> <tr><td>Luca Orrelano</td><td>LW</td><td>Velez</td><td>Argentinian</td><td>21</td></tr> <tr><td>Ernest Poku</td><td>RW</td><td>AZ</td><td>Dutch</td><td>17</td></tr> <tr><td>Myron Boadu</td><td>ST</td><td>Monaco</td><td>Dutch</td><td>20</td></tr> <tr><td>Troy Parrott</td><td>ST</td><td>Milton Keynes</td><td>Irish</td><td>19</td></tr></tbody></table>
