5 Must-Buy FM23 Wonderkid Defenders

Attacks win games, defences win titles. Who, though, are the best FM23 wonderkids when it comes to defenders? Here are five names to start scouting.


If you love the idea of building a young defensive unit, then you should look to buy some of the following FM23 wonderkids. These are names who have shown themselves to be among some of the most exciting young defensive talents in the game. Who, then, should you look into?

Emilio Lara, Club America


FM23 Emilio Lara

At 20, Emilio Lara is good enough to play in Europe. He will cost you at least €3m, but he would be a player worth signing early on. He has huge potential, and the fact he has not truly become a first-team regular for Club America is very useful. If you wait even one season, though, you could find that Lara establishes himself to the point where he is out of your reach, and other giants are circling.


Adamo Nagalo, FC Nordsjaelland


FM23 Adamo Nagalo

Burkina Faso produces lots of good young players today, and this young defender is one to keep a very close eye on. At 19, he probably needs more time to grow technically and tactically, but he has all of the attributes one could hope for in a young defender. If you want a player who can easily settle into a team and who has already played for a good development club, then add Adamo Nagalo to your list.

Ishe Samuels-Smith, Everton


FM23 Ishe Samuels-Smith

While you would expect to pay anything above €5m to get this youngster, he is one of the most promising young defenders in England. The youngster has already known he can play to a good level despite only being 16, and he has the technical development that you often need to work hard for with a younger player. Definitely one of the most exciting UK defensive prospects who you could actually afford to buy.


Marco Cruz, Sporting CP


FM23 Marco Cruz

A versatile Portuguese player who can just as easily play left-back as he can central midfield,18-year-old Marco Cruz has the world at his feet. You should expect to pay a decent price given his potential, but if you can land him you could have a left-sided defender for years to come. Some time and patience will be needed, but it will be patience that is very much well-rewarded if you do decide to add Cruz to your academy.

Diogo Monteiro, Servette


FM23 Diogo Monteiro

Portuguese-Swiss talent Diogo Monteiro is worth adding to your list of talents. While he might never become genuinely world-class, Monteiro has lots of positive attributes for one so young. At only 17, he might need more time to grow, so to speak, but he has the ability to contribute to your youth/B team and to make a few first-team appearances early on. Definitely, an intriguing prospect, if arguably the biggest punt of the names included on this particular list.

Conclusion


In conclusion, building a strong defensive unit is crucial for winning titles, and these FM23 wonderkids are the perfect building blocks for your team. With such players, you have a diverse range of young talents with different skillsets and abilities to choose from. Each player has a high potential to develop and will require a different investment in terms of transfer fees and development time, but they all have the potential to become key players in your team. Be sure to consider adding one or more of these players to your scouting list and keep an eye out for their progress, as they could become some of the most promising defenders in the game.
