It’s finally here; the latest edition of everyone’s favorite sports game FIFA 23 has arrived! With the recent updates to Career Mode, managing a squad has never looked so thrilling! With that in mind, we’ve decided it’s time to update our old best young LW LM FIFA 22 list of wonderkids for this year.
But as with every year’s FIFA, fans are wanting to know; who are the best young prospects to sign for my squad? Here’s our Best Young LW LM FIFA 23 guide, naming the top left wingers to sign that are 21 years old or younger.
Today we’ll be covering the best young left wingers and left midfielders FIFA 23 has to offer! From well known wonderkids to prolific prospects you’ve never heard of, this list is filled with potential! Don’t focus too much on the names you know, there’s some players on this list you don’t want flying under your radar.
The left wing position has changed over recent years, it used to be popularized by the 4-3-3 formation but these days you can see a player on the left wing in almost any set up. The same goes for the left midfield position, back in the day a left mid was a supportive type of player but the modern game has adapted this role into a more forward-thinking one.
Whatever type of left sided mid or forward you want, this list has it all! From players who set up exquisite chances for their teammates to ballers who will finish it all themselves, let’s take a look at the best young left wingers and left midfielders in FIFA 23!
Jayden Braaf (64 OVR / 84 POT)
Playing in Ajax’s, PSV’s and Manchester City’s academies, Jayden Braaf has learned from the best. He’s a pacey two footed left winger who would do well in almost any team in the world at only 20 years of age. His goal scoring record internationally is off to a good start as well, bagging two goals in three games for the Netherlands U18 squad. If he keeps that up, it’s only a matter of time before we see him hit the first team!
Jayden Braaf is currently playing for Borussia Dortmund in Germany, a great home for any young player looking to develop. He may follow in the footsteps of Christian Pulisic, Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland: three players who came to Dortmund young and left for very hefty fees!
