Fifa 18: Best Wonderkids in Career Mode

Updated on October 6, 2017

Fifa 18

Ah, it's that wonderful time of year, where the new annual installment in the ever-successful Fifa series is coming to consoles near you. This year's edition, Fifa 18, looks better than ever, and that is due in part to the rise of many young stars in recent years. There's a large amount of young players to sign in each career mode in Fifa 18.

**Please Note: Due to the constantly updating EA Sports database, some values and ratings for players may change slightly after this article has been posted, I will try to keep it updated to the best of my abilities, but some may appear incorrectly**

Finishing Notes:

Some of the players presented in these tables have recently moved clubs in real life, or are currently on loan at their club, and due to this you will be unable to sign them in the current transfer window, the only alternative to this is to wait until a later transfer window and attempt to sign them again.
