Top 23 Bundesliga Wonderkids

German football has made a big overhaul in recent years. From a physical league that concentrated on experience and work ethic, it became a league that recognises talent and shows amazing technical and tactical skills.

Germany has made enormous steps developing youth players and the number of young wonderkids in the league has been rapidly growing. In this article you will be finding the best Bundesliga wonderkids.

We have created a list that shows a total of 23 players. These players are all tipped as future world-class players. All players are at most 21-years-old and must have a potential ability that is either:

  • 160+
  • -95
  • -9
  • -85

That way we only show the best of the best Bundesliga wonderkids.


10 players on the list have the German nationality, making them (obviously) the leaders in the Bundesliga. Best picks from these 10 players are without a doubt:

  • Christian Früchtl (GK),
  • Oliver Batista Meier (AMR)
  • Kai Havertz (AMC)


If you are thinking about a long-term save in the German Bundesliga, either Dortmund or Leverkusen would be a good pick. Both clubs have 5 players on this list, but also have many other talented players that are under the age of 25. You could be creating a world-class squad from these players, not having to spend a lot on the transfer market.
