We continue our scouting through the Football Manager 2018 Database, looking for the best wonderkids you should be signing in your saves. After we managed to show you wonderkids from Holland, Brazil and England, this time we have landed in France and show you 5 French wonderkids to sign in FM2018!
This nation has been awesome in Football Manager in recent years, having some of the best wonderkids the game has ever seen. Kylian Mbappe was one of the best in FM2017, Anthony Martial in FM16 and Samuel Umtiti in FM2015. That alone shows this nation is always there when it comes to wonderkids and FM2018 is no different. Today we present you with 5 amazing French Wonderkids in Football Manager 2018.
Arsenal – Exp cost: 40M
The 19-year-old French left winger is said to have a bright future at Arsenal, but has yet to make an impression in the first team. Reine-Adelaide is a very speedy versatile player, who can play on both sides of the pitch, as a central midfielder and as a striker. He shows some comparisons with Arsenal-legend Thierry Henry, as he is also fast as a bolt of lightning, has a very good dribble and is able to finish a ball. Will he ever get to the same level? Difficult to say, but at Arsenal he is one of the major wonderkids!
Toulouse – Exp cost: 28M
Alban Lafont has been one of the major wonderkids in the past two versions of the game and FM2018 is no different. Lafont might be a little less talented than Gianluigi Donnarumma, but the 1m93 tall French goalkeeper still is massively talented. If you are looking at a young goalkeeper that will be there for years to come, Lafont is one of the players to look at. Donnarumma will cost you a big fee, while Lafont should be available for less than 30M. We at FMInside are in love with this goalkeeper and will recommend him any day!
Borussia Mönchengladbach – EXP COST: 8M
Mickael Cuisance made the step last summer from AS Nancy to Gladbach and has all the potential to become a very successful player in the German Bundesliga. Cuisance is a versatile midfielder, that can play on both the AMC and the MC position. Because his recent transfer, it is expected Gladbach will not be happy to let him go during the first season, but after the years progress, you should be able to get a hold of Cuisance. And you definitely should try! He is an amazing talent and we have seen him turn into an elite midfielder on more than one occassion!
Paris Saint-Germain – Exp cost: 17M
Are you looking for a player that has the same abilities as N’Golo Kanté? Make sure to send a scout towards Paris for youngster Claudio Gomes. He shows a stunning likeness to the French international and PFA Player of the Year 2017. And to make it even better, he is a lot cheaper! Kanté would cost you 60M+ at least, Gomes will be available for 17M. Only thing to take into consideration is his age. Gomes is 16-years-old, so he will need some time to develop. But, if you are patient enough, he will turn into the world-class Ball-winning-midfielder you always had your eye on!
Olympique Lyon – EXP COST: 10.75M
Amine Gouiri is Olympique Lyon’s next French supertalent. The 16-year-old player can play either as a striker or a left winger and has all the potential to become one of the world’s greatest players. Together with Lyons’ other wonderkid striker Willem Geubbels, Amine Gouiri is a player to watch in FM18. He is more expensive than Geubbels, but just as talented and he has a higher Current Ability. With an expected price tag of 11M, Gouiri should top your shortlist in any save you play!
