FM 2023 Best Players - Football Manager 2023 Hidden Gems

Welcome to the top secret guide of Football Manager 2023 hidden gems by FMScout.com.

The idea I have for hidden gems is about unearthing unknown players with low world reputation yet high quality. Some of them can be signed for under 500K and still have the ability to play at the top level.

FM 2023 Hidden Gems

Essentially, these are cheap players you don't know about in FM 2023 at the beginning of the first season (early pre-season, 27 June 2022).

I've handpicked just over 400 FM23 hidden gems! Most of the players you'll find below would be a good fit for the top leagues, but there are candidates suitable for lower leagues.

Updates will be applied from to time to ensure I'm not missing any players worthy of appearing here. I encourage you to post your own suggestions in the comment section, as I'll be checking them all to improve this hidden gem list further.

What are hidden gems?

They are players with low world reputation under 4000. That basically means we're looking at mostly unknown players.

My other criteria include an age limit of 30 years and a low asking price up to 3M, even though most players can be signed for much less.

Every player on this list has a minimum current ability of 100 to ensure that they're already on par at least as a backup option for almost any top league in the world.

What does the rating (R) mean?

It's a personal recommendation system for your convenience. I'm using a 1-100 scale based on English divisions.
81+ key player for 1st division teams
78-80 rotation/backup for 1st division teams
75-77 important player for 2nd division teams
72-74 rotation/backup player for 2nd division teams

Click on the table headers (name, age, etc) for easy sorting.
You can also sort by multiple columns if you press and hold Shift while clicking the headers.

FAQ

I can't find all players of this list on my savegame. Why?

I loaded all players (458k+) in-game to produce this list of FM23 hidden gems. Your savegame possibly has fewer players loaded.

Where is the downloadable shortlist file to import in-game?

Sorry, I don't have one. I used to share shortlists before, but people would steal them and post on other sites without my consent. However, I will release a few shortlists with my favorite players.

Feedback Appreciated

I'm counting on your feedback to update this list, so I encourage you to post your suggestions in the comments section below for players I might have missed or others who shouldn't be here. Any questions regarding those players feel free to ask.
