FIFA 22 Wonderkids: Best Young Attacking Midfielders (CAM) to Sign in Career Mode

We have ALL the best wonderkid attacking midfielders (CAM) on FIFA 22 Career Mode right here.


In a modern game that often relies on just one striker, and there being precious few top-tier goalscorers around, the attacking midfielder has become pivotal to the attack.

Needing to be a feeder and a goal threat, some of the best attacking midfielders in the world manage to break through as young players, and in FIFA 22, many of the top wonderkids in the position are first-team ready from the get-go.


Here, you’ll see all of the best CAM wonderkids to sign in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Choosing FIFA 22 Career Mode’s best wonderkid attacking midfielders (CAM)

This year’s batch of the best young players in the CAM position is loaded with talent, headlined by the likes of Dominik Szoboszlai, Phil Foden, and Florian Wirtz.

Each of the best attacking midfield wonderkids on this list are 21-years-old at the most, boast a minimum potential rating of 82, and have CAM set as their optimum position.


At the foot of the article, you’ll find the full list of all of the best attacking midfield (CAM) wonderkids in FIFA 22.

Phil Foden (84 OVR – 92 POT)

Team: Manchester City
Age: 21
Wage: £110,000
Value: £81.5 million
Best Attributes: 91 Balance, 90 Agility, 88 Ball Control

With a mighty 92 potential rating that will put him among the very best to feature in the game series, Phil Foden ranks as the top CAM wonderkid in FIFA 22.


Already, the English midfielder can be let loose in your starting XI, featuring an overall rating of 84. His 90 agility, 88 ball control, 86 dribbling, 84 short pass, and 84 vision make Foden a superb playmaker from the pocket.

Despite only being 21-years-old, the Stockport lad is very much a first-team feature for arguably the strongest team in the Premier League. Last season, he scored 16 goals and ten assists in 50 appearances, which enabled him to become a core part of England’s Euro 2020 squad.

Florian Wirtz (78 OVR – 89 POT)

Team: Bayer 04 Leverkusen
Age: 18
Wage: £15,000
Value: £25.5 million
Best Attributes: 85 Agility, 85 Dribbling, 83 Ball Control

At just 18-years-old, Florian Wirtz’s 78 overall rating is impressive on its own, but his main draw is the 89 potential, which sets him in the elite-tier of FIFA 22’s best young players.

The German is already well equipped to be a potent attacking threat higher up the pitch, starting Career Mode with 85 agility, 80 composure, 83 ball control, 83 vision, and 85 dribbling.

Bayer Leverkusen have been a great club for developing top prospects over the last decade or so, with Wirtz being one of their latest hot properties. The Pulheim-native scored eight goals and eight assists in 38 games last season, but the teen looks to break out in a big way this year, putting up five goals and four assists in the first six games alone.

Jamal Musiala (76 OVR – 88 POT)

Team: Bayern Munich
Age: 18
Wage: £17,500
Value: £15 million
Best Attributes: 90 Balance, 87 Agility, 86 Dribbling

With an 88 potential rating, Jamal Musiala comes in as one of the best CAM wonderkids in FIFA 22 and already has many serviceable ratings that’ll allow you to give him game time.

Hailing from Stuttgart, Musiala comes into the game with 90 balance, 87 agility, 86 dribbling, and 84 ball control – making him a superb ball-carrier that can drag defenders away and craft his own passing angles.

Last season, the versatile youngster was given 39 chances to showcase his ability, which yielded seven goals and an assist for Bayern Munich. This season, just eight games in, Musiala had found the back of the net four times and he’s set up three more, being played on the left wing, right wing, and in attacking midfield.

Giovanni Reyna (76 OVR – 87 POT)

 Team: Borussia Dortmund
Age: 18
Wage: £16,000
Value: £25.5 million
Best Attributes: 86 Dribbling, 84 Agility, 78 Short Pass

Another CAM wonderkid playing in the Bundesliga, Giovanni Reyna’s 78 overall rating and 87 potential rating enable the 18-year-old to rank as one of the best young players in FIFA 22.

The English-born, US-capped attacking midfielder already has the tools to be a provider from outside of the box, as well as be an occasional goalscorer. His 86 dribbling, 79 short pass, and 79 ball control mean that he’s great at moving the ball where it needs to go, while his 79 shot power and 68 finishing make him a shooting option.

Borussia Dortmund’s never-ending conveyor belt of future world-class stars continues to roll, with Reyna being one of the latest prospects to breakthrough. He was given a few sample showings in 2019/20, but properly made his mark on the club last season, scoring seven goals and setting up eight more in 46 games.

Dominik Szoboszlai (77 OVR – 87 POT)

Team: Red Bull Leipzig
Age: 20
Wage: £39,500
Value: £20 million
Best Attributes: 88 Curve, 87 Free-Kick Accuracy, 84 Long Shots

At 20-years-old with an 87 potential rating, Dominik Szoboszlai comes in fifth on this list of the best attacking midfield wonderkids in FIFA 22, and the fourth who’s playing in Germany’s top-flight.

The 6’1’’ right-footer stands out from the wonderkids above, primarily due to his superb ability to put the ball in the back of the net. His 84 long shots and 84 shot power make the Hungarian a menace from outside of the box, as do his 87 free-kick accuracy and 88 curve.

After starting last season with four goals and eight assists in the Austrian Bundesliga for RB Salzburg, RB Leipzig paid to bring Szoboszlai to the German Bundesliga. However, a long-term injury delayed his start for the club. To commence this season, though, he netted three goals in seven games.

Fabio Carvalho (67 OVR – 86 POT)

Team: Fulham
Age: 18
Wage: £5,100
Value: £2.2 million
Best Attributes: 85 Balance, 79 Agility, 77 Acceleration

If you’re looking to get one of the best CAM wonderkids in Career Mode cheaply, turn to the 18-year-old Fabio Carvalho, who has a decent 86 potential rating.

Still only 67 overall, the Portuguese-born Englishman doesn’t have many particularly eye-catching attribute ratings yet, with 85 balance, 77 acceleration, and 79 agility being his best. That said, he’s only valued at £2.2 million, so could prove to be a bargain.

In Fulham’s relegation campaign of last season, Carvalho was introduced to Craven Cottage in the final batch of games. This season, he commenced as a starting XI regular in the Championship, scoring three goals in the first five games from attacking midfield.

Thiago Almada (74 OVR – 86 POT)

Team: Vélez Sarsfield
Age: 20
Wage: £8,800
Value: £8.5 million
Best Attributes: 93 Balance, 92 Agility, 90 Acceleration

A feature of FIFA 21’s wonderkids in the position, Thiago Almada returns in FIFA 22 with a 74 overall rating and 86 potential rating to get into the list of the best young attacking midfielders in Career Mode once again.

The 5’7’’ midfielder is all about speed and skill, with his 90 acceleration, 93 balance, 92 agility, 82 dribbling, and 81 sprint speed already making it very difficult to dispossess the Argentine cleanly.

Almada continues to play a key role for Club Atlético Vélez Sarsfield, predominantly from attacking midfield. At the time of writing, the 20-year-old already had 23 goals and ten assists in 87 games for the top-flight club.
