We got the full list of wonderkids in FIFA 23 right here and show you cheap youngsters that have the biggest potential of all players. If you want to check out all young players with high potential, this is the way:

Hidden Gems In Career Mode: Wonderkids In FIFA 23

First, we explain what wonderkids are, like when is a young player a talented up-and-comer – and when is he a high-flyer worth being a part of our list. Included players must meet our following criteria:

  • Players must not be older than 18 years at the beginning of Career Mode
  • The OVR must improve by at least 23 points (unless he reaches 86+)

As you can see, the criteria almost guarantees that the wonderkids always start as hidden gems with ratings below 60 OVR. But if you buy them early on, train them and trust them, you will always be rewarded in Career Mode.

Players in your club will become better much faster than at other clubs. Best thing is: thanks to dynamic potential (it's in the game since FIFA 20), the young players can outreach their limits and become even better than the given potential.

Speaking of better... how good will the next EA game be without the FIFA?
