Hi guys and welcome to our best FM 2018 wonderkids shortlist. We have spent a fair few hours researching Football Manager 2018 and can finally bring you the best FM 2018 wonderkids as we did in Football Manager 2017 wonderkids shortlist.

The list below is interactive, you can sort it by age, potential and value etc, or use the search bar to find the exact player you want for any position. Just type in the letters that represent your desired position and the table will do the rest. These FM18 wonderkids have been rated on their potential alone, we haven’t taken into account current ability, this list is to help you buy better for the future after all. The ‘potential’ is a numerical rating out of 10.

Soon you will be able to scroll to the bottom of the list and download all these best FM 18 wonderkids in a shortlist.
