Player Insights - Football Manager 2023 Possible New Wonderkids
This is a list of 100 young players we think think they could be wonderkids or potential wonderkids on Football Manager 2023, based on what we know from real football.

You won't find players who appeared on our world renowed wonderkids list for FM22 in an effort to uncover fresh starlets who are still relatively unknown. The young talents listed below don't exist in the official FM22 database at all.

Looking for the actual list of FM23 Wonderkids?

I've tried to include players between 15 and 18 years old, but there are also a few exceptions. The age limit is to be up to 20 years old by 5 July 2022.

To sum up the criteria of this list:
  • Most players on this list should not exist in the official FM22 database.
  • 100 new exciting prospects you might haven't heard of before.
  • The age limit is to be up to 20 years old by 5 July 2022.
  • The order is totally random.
