Football Manager 2023 Wonderkids: Best FM23 Wonderkids

Published on

Welcome to the ULTIMATE list of Football Manager 2023 Wonderkids courtesy of the team at Football Manager Story.

This will be continually updated throughout the FM23 cycle.

Football Manager 2023 Wonderkids

The very best FM23 Wonderkids, once complete will feature over 300 prospects  all sorted by their Potential Ability.

Are you looking for the best Wonderkid striker with the highest potential, maybe the best young centre-backs with a PA of over 160, this is the place for you.

In the navigation bar, you can enter the position you are looking for within the PA range, and help locate the best FM23 wingers, or wonderkid playmakers.

If you want to see how this list might look further down the line, check out our very popular FM22 Wonderkid list.


What is a Wonderkid?

We classify ‘Wonderkids’ as high potential prospects under the age of 21. Some FM23 Wonderkids have a flexible potential meaning their Potential Ability (PA) can vary from save to save and this is usually the case for younger players.

All of our FM23 wonderkids will have a flexible potential between 140 and 200 (the highest in the game), or a fixed potential of over 150. We will have a separate list for Cheap FM23 Wonderkids, so you don’t miss out when managing down in the lower leagues.

To view all players we recommend loading a large database with England, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Argentina and Brazil listed as playable.

Best Football Manager 2023 Wonderkids

These tables will be done slightly different to what you are normally used to. This will not be listed by position, but by POTENTIAL (PA).

There are two types of potential. Fixed or Flexible. We’ll kick things off with the Potential Ability. When you load your save, each of these players will be assigned a number in this range. 170-200, 160-190 etc. Each save will look differently.

Best FM23 Wonderkids: Potential 170-200


We have just one player who is potentially the most ridiculous wonderkid we’ve ever seen. FM23 Brazilian Wonderkid thing of dreams.

Best FM 2023 Wonderkids: Potential 160-190


Moukokou is still one of the best wonderkid strikers in the game, but his potential has been dropped a little. The most exciting addition is the PSG youngster. Easily could become a regular for France and one of the best FM23 Midfield wonderkids.

Best FM23 Wonderkids: Fixed Potential 170-200


Not everything is about wonderkids with unknown potential. Some of the biggest names in football have their future already set. Jamal Musiala could be one of the most exciting Wonderkids in FM23 and Napoli’s own Kvaradona has all the pre-game hype and is smashing up Serie A. Is he the best FM23 Wonderkid Inverted Winger?

Julien Duranville and Vitor Roque could be two of the best wonderkid additions to FM23 and it’s exciting to see what they become. Moises Caicedo has been upgraded and is one of the most versatile wonderkids in the game.

Giorgio Scalvini is easily one of the best FM23 Centre Back wonderkids in the game. Let us know if you use him and how he turns out.

A short list of Wonderkids, but all of them will be stars of your team for the next 10 years. All aged 21, this is their last season as a Wonderkid, but in Enzo Fernandez, you still have one of the best FM23 defensive midfielders in the game.

This is the biggest pool of players for the high potential players. One of the standouts could be Dennis Seiman, as one of the best FM23 Wonderkid Goalkeepers we’ve ever seen. Roony Bardghji is here for another year, a brilliant looking FM23 Wonderkid winger or inverted winger. If you’ve not used him, you will not be disappointed.
