Best FM 2021 Cheap Wonderkids: Goalkeeper
To be frank it was slim picking in goal but one bargain stands out from the Norwegian top flight. Klaesson has good all round ability for a 17 year old and no real weakness. £7.5m may seem steep but this kid was first choice for Schalke before moving to Liverpool in my test save. The future screenshot below should lay those pricing doubts to rest.
Kristoffer Klaesson | 19 year old | GK | Valerenga | Cost: £7.5m
Klaesson development in the year 2027
Best FM 2021 Cheap Players: Defenders
Ahmedhodzic is a giant ball playing defender with great speed, technique and well rounded mentals. He is the complete Defender and at 21 years of age enjoys high, fixed potential with a spirited personality meaning the Bosnian could be World class, save in save out.
Anel Ahmedhodzic | 21 year old | DC | Malmo | Cost: £4.9m
Ahmedhodzic development in the year 2027
Following relegation last season Brescia lost their prized asset, Tonali, yet the Serie B side have another FM 2021 cheap wonderkid. Andrea Papetti is a centre back by trade but enjoys good technique and ability on the ball. For £2.9 million you are getting a World class prospect with great speed and all round ability. How many centre-backs do you know worth £138 million?
Andrea Papetti | 18 year old | DC | Brescia | Cost: £2.9m
Papetti development in the year 2027
So you have signed Papetti, but what if I found you his partner in crime and for a combined £4.8 million! Max Normann Williamson, despite his long name, is little known and a hidden gem. Plying his trade in Norway the kid looks good at 17 but check out his development by 2027. What Max lacks in technical ability he makes up for in physique and for just £1.9m.
Max Normann Williamsen | 17 year old | DC | Kristiansund | Cost: £1.9m
Williamsen development in the year 2027
Moving onto full backs and we begin with Josha Vagnoman, a versatile, 19 year old plying his trade in Germany for HSV. Vagnoman is capable on either side of Defence and possess’ great speed, technical ability and physicality. At £4m he would be a great utlity man and while we do not have great screenshots from 2027 the German does have high flexible potential.
Josha Vagnoman | 18 year old | DR/DL/WBR/WBL | Hamburger SV | Cost: £4m
Vagnoman development in the year 2027
Next up a left back and one of my favourites, Riccardo Calafiori. As a Roma fan I’m syched to see the 18 year old recognised but doubt the Giallorossi would let him go for £7.5 million in real life. This kid has it all, speed, defensive awareness and ability on the ball. With great potential Calafiori is the ideal flying wing back and creative force.
Riccardo Calafiori | 18 year old | DL/WBL | Roma | Cost: £7.5m
Calafiori development in the year 2027
Best FM21 Cheap Wonderkids: Central Midfielders
Our next FM 2021 cheap player is a youth prospect from Genoa. Due to his ‘youth contract’ status you can purchase Nicolo Rovella for a bargain price of £1.8 million. This kid has it all, he is a complete midfielder capable going forward and in defence. You could use Rovella in rotation from the get go in defence midfield or a more central role.
Nicolo Rovella | 18 year old | DM/MC | Genoa | Cost: £1.8m
Rovella development in the year 2027
£300K! That is what 15 year old wonderkid Gavi will cost you from Barcelona. Whomever accpeted that ridiculous release clause needs sacking but their loss is our gain. I am yet to find a fair reflection of Gavi’s development in FM21 but even aged 22 he looks tasty. A flair machine capable from MC or AMC you should let the young Spaniard loose in an advanced playmaker role.
Gavi | 15 year old | MC/AMC | Barcelona | Cost: £300K
Gavi development in the year 2027
Best FM21 Cheap Players: Attacking Midfielders
OK, a bit of a cop out but he’s back guys. The much loved Thiago Almada returns as one of the best Football Manager 2021 cheap wonderkids. I have a feeling the 19 year old has dropped slightly in PA but for £6 million he is amazing. Just look at all those 17 technicals and that flair/vision.
Thiago Almada | 19 year old | AMC | Velez | Cost: £6m
Almada development in the year 2027
Football Manager 2021 Cheap Players: Wingers
Brian Oddei is an exciting, creative Winger with great speed and ball control. Costing just £1 million Brian is a complete steal with solid base attributes and high, flexible potential. Best used from the right wing, cutting inside he can also train to be a False Nine.
Its quite rare to find a forward with such speed and skill who can also pick out a pass and cross the ball. This proved the case in our test save where Oddei scored 64 goals assisting 43 from 229 games.
Brian Oddei | 18 year old | AMR/ST | Sassuolo | Cost: £1m
Oddei development in the year 2027
Akhomach is a dynamic, skilful, inside forward from La Masia Academy with flexible potential and £5.5 million release clause. Man United paid £64 million in our test save as Ilias scored 15 goals assisting 9 from 54 games in England, reaching elite Winger status.
Ilias Akhomach | 16 year old | AMR/AMC | Barcelona | Cost: £5.5m
Akhomach development in the year 2027
I struggled to find high class talent out wide for a fair price, that is until Exequiel Zeballos came across my screen. The 18 year old has great all round ability underlined by fantastic technique and while he can take some developing I have two saves showing brilliant growth. Zeballos is best played from the left cutting inside to utilise his finishing and ability on the ball.
Exequiel Zeballos | 18 year old | AML/ST | Boca Juniors | Cost: £4.7m
Zeballos development in the year 2027
FM 2021 Cheap Wonderkids: Strikers
Finally, my favourite FM21 cheap players and both would form a fantastic front line. Matias Arezo should be familiar to all costing just £1.9 million, his current ability has been lifted for FM 2021. The 17 year old could be a complete forward and challenge for first team Football early on but won’t join your club until January. Real Madrid paid £80 million for Matias in my test save and no wonder, just look at that speed, balance and agility.
Matias Arezo | 17 year old | ST | River Plate Montevideo | Cost: £1.9m
Arezo development in the year 2027
My final FM 2021 cheap wonderkid is Wilfried Gnonto from Switzerland. A strange wonderkid as most don’t get hyped after leaving big clubs, yet Gnonto left Inter for Zurich. The 16 year old should set you back £700K and develops great speed and striking instincts. Atalanta paid £15m in my save before Juventus coughed up £48 million and the kids scored a goal every other since. Of course he will need nurturing but its low risk high reward.
Wilfried Gnonto | 16 year old | AMC/ST | Zurich | Cost: £700K
Gnonto development in the year 2027
