EA is releasing FIFA 21 on October 9 and if you’re thinking of buying it or already pre-ordered it, you might want to check out the revamped career mode, which is much more detailed now. And if you’re thinking of building a team from the ground up, we’re sure you’ll be in the market for some young players who’ll potentially become good players in the future.

In this article, we’ve listed 50 young players on FIFA 21 that have the highest potential to grow from their starting OVR, with at least a potential to grow 20 OVR over their career. This list of the wonderkids or hidden young gems on FIFA 21 is displayed in descending order of their potential OVR.

While the ones with a higher current OVR might cost you more, they also mostly have a higher potential OVR. However, you can also try out players with lower current OVR if you’re playing in the lower leagues as they’ll grow alongwith your team eventually.

Young players from bigger clubs are less likely to move, especially if you’re trying to woo them to a lower league club. It’s best that you scout and move for these players early on as most of them are marked as an “exciting prospect” in-game and are likely to be taken up on load by other teams.
