FM 2017 Best Players - FM17 Top 5 Turkish U21 Football Talents
According to Football Manager 2017, here is a list of the 5 best Turkish talents under 21 (until June 30th, 2016) in and outside of Turkey who will look to make at least the provisional Turkish national squad for the final stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Emre Mor

Emre Mor is often compared to Leonel Messi. The talented 18-year old has immense skill, particularly acute dribbling, explosive bursts down the wings and extraordinary technique. With starting CA at 135, he’s got enough quality to break into your FM17 team’s rotation at once.
Reality check:
Kasper Hjulmand, Nordsjælland coach:
“What he is capable of is extraordinary. He has got so much speed in his feet, and he is so unpredictable. Just when you expect him to pass, he makes another dribble instead and changes direction. And when he does that, you do not catch him – that is plain impossible."

Turkey need more than just the next Messi though – they aren't the betting favourites in their World Cup qualifying group and one of the Turkish betting sites has them pegged as third favourites in their group. To upset the odds, they will need a crop of young talent to come good – that's why we need to look at more of the best Turkish players on FM to see who that could be...

Berkay Ozcan

The teenage attacking midfielder is labelled the next Selcuk Inan. With starting CA at 116 and decent attributes all around, he can make the first team even in top flights leagues if you’re managing a mid-table club. He has very good body balance, vision, passing and movement off the ball.
Reality check:
Berkay Ozcan enjoyed a breakthrough season at Stuttgart in the German second division (3 goals in 18 appearances). Arsenal is one of the clubs who appear to have him on their summer transfer shortlist.

Enes Unal

The Man City forward is a lethal finisher showcasing good composure, first touch and off the ball movement. With starting CA at 121, he’s first team material for mid-table clubs and can also break into the rotation of the bigger ones. He’s quite agile considering his height.
Reality check:
Enes Unal really stepped up during his loan spell at Twente in the Eredivisie scoring 18 goals, finishing 5th in the top scorer charts. Dozens of high profile clubs are closely monitoring his progress and will likely bid to secure his services for next season’s loan he will still be ineligible for a work permit that would allow him to play for Man City.

Caglar Soyuncu

The towering centre-back possesses remarkable pace and he’s a hard worker and extremely consistent. Tackling, marking and bravery are some of the traits he excels at. With starting CA at 127, he can feature on your first team right off the bat and with proper training he’ll turn into a world-class defender.
Reality check:
Caglar Soyuncu joined Freiburg last year and had a brilliant season at Bundesliga. That attracted the interest of Man Utd, but his current club seems uninterested to let him go this summer. His journey from Turkish second division to Germany’s top flight has been quite impressive and his development will likely continue in 2017/18.

Irfan Kahveci

Irfan Kahveci is a decent free kick taker, good with the ball and a great passer. He also has high work rate and stamina. With starting CA at 115, he could break into your squad’s rotation and provide the spark that you need offensively.
Reality check:
The 20-year old starlet showcased a dramatic development last season which convinced Basaksehir to recruit him last December. Higher profile clubs in Turkey are monitoring his progress, but a possible transfer this summer seems unlikely having joined his current club only 6 months ago.
