Juse Bellingham in FIFA 23EA SPORTS

The key to a successful FIFA 23 Career Mode is having an eye on the future with top youth prospects who will grow into to guaranteed starters later down the line. Here are some of the young players we expect to be wonderkids in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 is almost here, and although Ultimate Team will most likely dominate once again, there’s still a large portion of players with an eye on Career Mode. The prospect of taking a club from obscurity to the Champions League is unlike anything else the series has to offer, and FIFA 23 is no exception.

Filling out your squad with the best strikers and defenders is key to being competitive right away, but if you’re taking on a long-term project, it pays to look ahead. Luckily, there are plenty of wonderkids in FIFA 23 Career Mode with stacks of potential.

With the final release just weeks away, here are the best young players in FIFA 23 Career Mode that you should consider signing on day one.


Best wonderkids in FIFA 23

If you want to really develop your Career Mode squad, we recommend searching for young players that are 23 years old or under. These youngsters have bags of potential and time is on their side when it comes to living up to that promise.

It also means that can slowly train up their stats over many seasons, even if they’re not quite ready for the starting 11 right away.

Since FIFA 23 still isn’t out, we’ve put together our predictions for the best wonderkids to sign in Career Mode based on previous years and real-life performances. Check out our picks in every position below:
