With FM20 just around the corner, set to be released November 19th, we must take time and prepare our scouting shortlists. So in light of that, here's a list of seven exciting young players that could cost you less than £10m, but could be a massive addition to your club.
1. Mohamed Ihattaren
The Attacking midfielder who plays for PSV Eindhoven is touted as a future star. He is versatile and is said to have the ability to play in central midfield or the right side of midfield. PSV have already given a few caps to the 17 year old who is also a regular feature in the Netherlands u19 setup.
2. Thiago Almada
The 18 year old who plays for Velez Sarsfield is already turning heads in the Argentine Primera Divison. He is an attacking winger who was featured in the Guardian’s “Next Generation 2018”. Manchester City & Atletico Madrid are rumoured to be interesting in signing the youngster in real life.
3. Karamoko Dembele
At just 16 years old, Karamoko Dembele could be one of the best investments for your team in Football Manager. He already has a senior appearance for Celtic and the right winger had represented Celtic u20 at the age of just 13, drawing a lot of attention in the process.
Having made his senior debut at just 16, the Brazilian striker is drawing comparisons to Robert Lewandowski. Flamengo have already given Lincoln a new contract but the striker is expected to soon follow his former teammate Vinicius Junior to Europe. 18 year old Lincoln maybe a little costlier in the list of mentioned players but there is no doubts about his potential and could be one of the best strikers in FM 20.
5. Alban Lafont
The 20 year old keeper attracted attention when he became the youngest goalkeeper to play in Ligue 1 when he made his debut for Toulose in 2015. He now plays for Nantes on loan from Fiorentina and could be in line for a bigger transfer in the near future.
6. Ryan Gravenberch
The 17 year old Dutch midfielder is dubbed as the next Pogba plays for Ajax in the Eredivisie. He is touted as one of the best talents to come out of the Ajax academy which already boasts of some amazing names. He became the club’s youngest debutant in 2018 and will be a star name in future FM versions.
7. Ben Wilmot
The 19-year-old centre back plays for Swansea, on loan from Watford. He is said to be a ball playing defender who is good in the air. With teams like Arsenal and Tottenham rumoured to be interested in the defender he could be a value budget addition to most managers.
