If you’re looking for hidden gems in FIFA 23’s Career Mode, then you’ll want to start scouting the best young players available. With a little patience and opportunities in your starting eleven, these players can rise to the top of the beautiful game.

Investing in youth is a smart strategy that many of the most renowned football clubs in the world utilize. The best young players in FIFA 23’s Career Mode provide value to all clubs no matter their stature.

Those managing a top club could look to scoop up young talent for the future while allowing them to develop on loan. Meanwhile, smaller clubs could invest an initial transfer fee for top young talent and develop that player into a superstar, eventually obtaining a massive transfer fee in the process.

Regardless of which Career Mode strategy you wish to utilize, here are the best young players to sign in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Career Mode top wonderkids to sign

Finding a diamond in the rough and polishing them into one of FIFA 23’s best players is a fun tactic in Career Mode. However, without a top-tier scouting network, it could be difficult to identify FIFA 23’s wonderkids.

It turns out some clubs are better than others when it comes to developing young talent and Borussia Dortmund, Ajax, and Benfica are notorious for this exact accomplishment.

For starters, Youssoufa Moukoko is a striker that could potentially lead your line for the next twenty years. He’s only 17 and better yet he’s available for the bargain price of €7.5 million.

You’ll also find Jamie Bynoe-Gittens at Dortmund who much like Jadon Sancho, left Manchester City to develop his game in Germany. Perhaps your club could be his next destination.

If you look to the Serie A, you can snap up a trio of players that would solidify your defense, midfield, and attack for the foreseeable future, given that you develop the young talents properly. Giorgio Scalvini, Fabio Miretti, and Luka Romero are available for a combined fee of around €13 million.

Of course, there are also players that can walk into your starting eleven with greater ease. These individuals may cost a little more, but thanks to their current rating, they’d be ready to help your club immediately. This shortlist includes Rayan Cherki, Alberto Moleiro, and Xavi Simmons.
