Callum Hudson-Odoi (147 CA / 170 PA)
Current Ability / Potential Ability: 147 CA / 170 PA
Wage: £120,000 p/w
Value: £72 million
Best Positions: WBR, M (RL), AM (RLC)
Best Attributes: 16 Acceleration, 15 Dribbling, 15 Crossing
Callum Hudson-Odoi’s 147 CA and 170 PA are just the start of the exceptional retinue of this 20-year-old, who is also capable with either foot and possesses many other great traits.
The highly-rated winger’s 16 acceleration, 15 pace, and 15 off the ball enable him to find great positions from which to attack, employing his 15 crossing, 15 passing, and 14 vision to create for his side. Hudson-Odoi’s raw talent also extends to his ball control; his 15 first touch, 15 dribbling, and 15 flair are fantastic starting ratings for the young winger.
Playing for Premier League giants Chelsea, 20-year-old Hudson-Odoi graduated from the London side’s academy. Getting his first taste of senior football at just 17 years old, he made his debut in 2018, and a year later had received a call-up to the England national team.
He’s gone from strength-to-strength since his debut and featured 37 times last season, scoring five goals and setting up five more as he helped his team win the UEFA Champions League.
Dejan Kulusevski (148 CA / 170 PA)
Team: Zebre (Juventus)
Current Ability / Potential Ability: 148 CA / 170 PA
Wage: £76,000 p/w
Value: £56 million
Best Positions: MR, AM (RC)
Best Attributes: 17 Balance, 17 Passing, 17 Vision
Juventus’ 21-year-old talent Dejan Kulusevski is a brilliant prospect. Holding 148 CA, a massive 170 PA, and a host of good player traits, he’s a star in the making.
The best part of his game comes from his ability to play a pass with Kulusevski’s 17 passing, 17 vision, and 16 technique making him a potent playmaker. His skill on the ball is also an area of strength for the inverted winger, and boasting 15 first touch, 15 dribbling, and 15 flair, he can retain possession easily.
Kulusevski currently plays for Italian Serie A powerhouse Juventus. The talented Swede first moved to Italy with Atalanta’s academy, joined Parma on-loan for the 2019/20 season, halfway through the season signed with Juventus for £31.5 million, before resuming his loan at Parma.
He’s now a main starter in the first-team for Juventus and won both the Italian Cup and Italian Super Cup last term, a season in which Kulusevski made 47 appearances, scoring seven goals and assisting seven more.

Best Attributes: 18 Acceleration, 16 Flair, 15 Work Rate
Wonderkid Bukayo Saka’s outstanding 150 CA and 168 PA are fantastic ratings for a 19-year-old inverted winger.
His quick turn of pace, highlighted by 18 acceleration and 15 pace, give him a great physical edge over most defenders, and when combined with his 14 crossing, 13 passing, and 14 vision ratings, he’s capable of teeing up your strikers time and time again. For a young player, his 15 work rate and 14 stamina are a fantastic base to develop from, making him a tenacious nightmare for opponents.
Now one of the first names on the team sheet, Bakayo Saka’s emergence from Arsenal’s academy has been meteoric. He made his debut in 2019 before a string of impressive performances earned him a call-up to England’s national team, who he’s now featured 14 times for. Missing just a handful of games last season, Saka made 46 appearances in which he netted seven goals and set up ten more as he continues to make a name for himself.

Value: £47 million
Best Positions: AM (RLC), ST
Best Attributes: 17 Dribbling, 17 Acceleration, 16 Flair
21-year-old Pedro Neto’s 138 CA and 167 PA hints at a promising future for the left-footed inverted winger.
Utilising both speed and skill to terrorise opponents, Neto’s 17 acceleration and 16 pace combined with 17 dribbling and 16 flair make him a difficult player to deal with. His ability to produce chances is key to his development and his 13 crossing, 13 finishing, and 11 vision are a good place to start improving.
Wolverhampton’s Portuguese star joined the Premier League outfit from Lazio in 2019 for £16.11 million. The 21-year-old had previously joined Lazio from boyhood club, Braga, the prior summer following a successful loan spell with the Italian team.
Last season Neto was having an outstanding season scoring five and assisting six in his 35 appearances until a horrific knee injury in April ended his season early, and he isn’t expected to return before February 2022.

Best Positions: AM (RL), ST
Best Attributes: 16 Agility, 15 Technique, 15 Pace
Real Madrid’s young prodigy Rodrygo weighs in with 139 CA and 165 PA at just 20 years old, earning him the wonderkid media description.
The forward excels with the ball at his feet due to his 14 dribbling, 15 first touch, and 15 technique, while his 14 finishing is also fantastic for his age. Rodrygo’s mental attributes are also advanced for such a young player with his 15 off the ball, 14 decisions, and 15 flair great ratings, although his 10 vision needs addressing to get the best out of him.
Real Madrid’s Brazilian wonderkid is showing undoubted promise in Spain’s La Liga since he arrived from boyhood club Santos in 2019 for £40.5 million. Continuing his development in Spain, he played in 33 games last season, scoring twice and assisting eight more at the age of just 20.

21-year-old Ferran Torres is already playing at a great level with his 150 CA and 165 PA ranking him as an elite winger at the start of any game.
His great speed ratings of 17 acceleration and 16 pace make it easy for Torres to explode up the right-hand side, using his 15 dribbling and 15 technique to fantastic effect. He’s more than adept at getting his name on the scoresheet, boasting 15 finishing and 12 long shots combining well with his creative ratings of 13 vision and 13 passing.
Playing for Premier League behemoth Manchester City, the Spanish playmaker moved from his childhood club Valencia to England last season for £20.7 million having already established himself as a top talent.
In his first season in Manchester last term, the 21-year-old played 36 games for Pep Guardiola’s side, scoring 13 goals and setting up three more in a brilliant season for the Spaniard which saw him lift both Premier League and English League Cup trophies.

Operating as an inverted winger on the right flank and armed with a 142 CA and 162 PA, 21-year-old Antony’s left foot causes all kinds of danger on the wing.
The young forward is very gifted with the ball at his feet, and his 16 technique, 16 flair, and 16 dribbling are testament to his ability to glide past players with ease. The winger possesses an excellent finish as well, both from range and in the box, with his 12 finishing and 13 long shots enhanced by his 16 technique.
Ajax’s hotshot Brazilian winger signed for the Dutch giants last season from his childhood club São Paulo for a bargain of £14.18 million after proving his class in Brazil.
