FIFA 21 Wonderkids: Best Attacking Midfielders (CAM) to Sign in Career Mode

Here are ALL the best wonderkid attacking midfielders (CAM) on FIFA 21 Career Mode.


Deviating from the classic 4-4-2, the central attacking midfielder has become one of the most exciting roles with the freedom to roam in the opponents half and create space between the lines.

A list of the world’s best attacking midfielders in the game right would include the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandez, Thomas Muller and a young player who appears on this list, Kai Havertz.


Choosing FIFA 21 Career Mode’s Best Wonderkid Attacking Midfielders (CAM)

Below you will find the best young central attacking midfielders, one or two for the present but most for the future. Any one of the players below could be a great long-term asset for your Career Mode.

To appear on the list, the players have to be 21 or under, play CAM as their primary role and have a minimum Potential of 80. The Potential ratings are the key to the players’ long-term success and how good they can be.

At the top of this page will be a breakdown of the five best players that fit the criteria and below will be a table of all the players that fit the criteria. Both are sorted by Potential.

Kai Havertz (OVR 85 – POT 93)

Team: Chelsea
Best Position: CAM, RM, CF
Age: 21
Overall/Potential: 85 OVR / 93 POT
Value: £109,000,000
Skill Moves: 4
Best Attributes: 88 Sprint Speed, 87 Ball Control, 86 Dribbling

Havertz left his home country in a move worth over £70m this summer, moving to London-based Chelsea. He is a young star and is touted for great things in the future.

Havertz is a very intelligent footballer with a high level of awareness for knowing where space is and how he can exploit it. Last season he scored 12 goals and contributed 6 assists, showing off his ability in the final third.

Deceptively fast, Havertz has 88 Sprint Speed to go along with 85 Reactions and 78 Acceleration. His 85 Finishing, 84 Positioning and 84 Composure also make him dangerous in front of goal.

With fantastic ability in the final third and already being able to play CF, could Havertz be a viable option as a striker with a position change?

Thiago Almada (OVR 73 – POT 89)

Team: Vélez Sarsfield
Best Position: CAM, CM, LW
Age: 19
Overall/Potential: 73 OVR / 89 POT
Value: £7,000,000
Skill Moves: 4
Best Attributes: 94 Balance, 91 Agility, 88 Acceleration

Making his way from the youth academy through to the first team, Vélez Sarsfield’s Thiago Almada is an attacking midfielder who can play on either wing or down the middle. Surely it’s only a matter of time before he gets snapped up by one of Europe’s big teams.

Almada’s season was cut short as was the rest of the Argentinian Superliga due to the pandemic last season. However, he will hope to build off of consistent starts and make his mark in the league and beyond this season.

At 5’7”, Almada may only have 56 Strength but he is lightning quick and very nimble. He has 88 Acceleration, 85 Sprint Speed, 91 Agility and 94 Balance. Almada also has 81 Curve, 79 Dribbling and 77 Ball Control to go along with 77 Composure at just 19 years old.

With such raw physical attributes and high potential, he could be developed into the player of your choosing.

Martin Ødegaard (OVR 83 – POT 89)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position: CAM, CM, RM
Age: 21
Overall/Potential: 83 OVR / 89 POT
Value: £52,500,000
Skill Moves: 5
Best Attributes: 87 Vision, 86 Dribbling, 85 Ball Control

Only 21 years of age, Ødegaard burst onto the footballing scene six years ago with a move to Real Madrid, where he was touted for great things. After loan spells in Holland and back in Spain, he now looks ready to reach his potential back in Madrid.

Ødegaard is an attacking midfielder who can play down the middle or on the right-hand side of the attack. He is a very skilful player who can get himself out of trouble with a trick or two.

Following the trend of agile attacking midfielders, Ødegaard has 85 Agility and 83 Balance. Where he excels is his skill attributes, all of which are over the 80 threshold. He has 86 Dribbling, 85 Ball Control, 81 Curve and 83 Free Kick Accuracy.

With 80 Acceleration and 5-star skill moves to go along with 84 Crossing, Ødegaard could also be utilised on the wing, putting dangerous crosses into goal-scoring positions.

Florian Wirtz (OVR 68 – POT 88)

Team: Bayer 04 Leverkusen
Best Position: CAM, RM
Age: 17
Overall/Potential: 68 OVR / 88 POT
Value: £2,900,000
Skill Moves: 3
Best Attributes: 84 Agility, 76 Ball Control, 76 Balance

At 17, Florian Wirtz is very much beginning his journey as a professional footballer. Graduating from Leverkusen’s youth academy to the first team this summer, he will look for minutes on the pitch this season to show what he can do.

From what few games Wirtz has played, he seems to play down the middle or on the right-hand side of the attacking midfielder role. However, being so young, time is on his side as he looks to establish his role and position.

With a growth of 20 ratings up to 88, Wirtz is very much a blank canvas. However, he already has 74 Dribbling and 76 Ball Control. His standout attribute is his Agility at 84 and he also possesses 76 Balance, 76 Sprint Speed and 72 Acceleration.

Rayan Cherki (OVR 67 – POT 88)

Team: Olympique Lyonnais
Best Position: CAM, RM, LM
Age: 17
Overall/Potential: 67 OVR / 88 POT
Value: £2,900,000
Skill Movies: 5
Best Attributes: 81 Balance, 76 Agility, 75 Dribbling

Cherki made his way through his hometown club to the first team at the start of the year as he looks to establish a place in the side. Just 17 years of age, he played a handful of games last season, something he will look to build on this season.

Cherki can play either side of the attack or down the middle as a central attacking midfielder. He is very skilful and can play with either foot.

Only a handful of players on FIFA 21 have 5-star skill moves and 5-star weak foot and Cherki is the lowest rated of those players by a decent length. Though coming in at 67, he has 75 Dribbling and 73 Ball Control.

Cherki’s other headline stats are his 81 Balance, 76 Agility, 71 Sprint Speed and 71 Acceleration. All other attributes fall below 70 rated.
