  • Value: £133.5 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 94 Finishing, 94 Shot Power, 93 Strength

If we start explaining the individual qualities of Haaland, this guide would take forever! On a short note, Haaland is probably the most accomplished overall wonderkid your team could have on the ST position. The sprint speed of this individual is also high, 93, enabling him to make plays and actions for his team quickly and swiftly. The finishing, strength, and shot power skills are nothing less than spectacular, so having the chance to sign Haaland to your team is a no-brainer decision!

He is rumored to sign for Manchester City next season, so expect even bigger things from him in the future.

2.) Joao Felix (83 OVR / 91 POT)

  • Team: Atletico de Madrid
  • Age: 21
  • Wage: £55.000
  • Value: £74 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 88 Dribbling, 88 Agility, 84 Vision

Felix surprised everyone when he decided to join Atletico Madrid while having offers from such exclusive clubs in the world. However, he has been nothing short of spectacular for this team, as his qualities are mostly seen in his playmaking abilities. Joao has a high vision score, along with ball control and dribbling, making him a perfect case for an elite playmaker in La Liga.

Joao is mainly utilized in the CF role, but that doesn’t mean that he cannot fill the ST role, as he has proven this multiple times in Atletico Madrid. Furthermore, he is the second wonderkid when it comes to potential points, so this should secure him a spot in your rotation without any doubt!

3.) Dusan Vlahovic (82 OVR / 89 POT)

  • Team: Fiorentina 
  • Age: 21
  • Wage: £70.000
  • Value: £56 million
  • Biggest Strengths: Strength 86, Positioning 87, Finishing 87

Vlahovic got traded to Juventus in Calcio Liga, as he built himself a case for one of the best strikers in this league. His continuous goal scoring and the strength and stamina he provides for the team have helped him get recognized by high championship-caliber teams, such as Juventus. What he lacks in balance and aggression, Vlahovic compensates with ball control, reactions, and strength among other qualities, resembling the kind of player Haaland is.

Able to create his own position and score from a variety of places on the field, Vlahovic rates high in the Wonderkids area, and there shouldn’t be many debates about whether he deserves a place in the starting XI or not.

4.) Armando Broja (76 OVR / 88 POT)

  • Team: Southampton
  • Age: 19
  • Wage: £28.500
  • Value: £16 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 81 Sprint Speed, 83 Strength, 78 Finishing

Southampton has been known for producing high-valued talented players, and Broja is one of them. The Albanian native is only 19 years old but is proving to be a player that your team can use continuously in the offensive lines. At his age, only the sky’s the limit, which is shown by the 88 potential rating, accomplished with high points in the finishing manners, such as shot power, positioning, and sprint speed. 

5.) Moise Kean (79 OVR / 87 POT)

  • Team: Piemonte Calcio
  • Age: 21
  • Wage: £57.000
  • Value: £36 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 84 Shot Power, 85 Strength, 85 Sprint Speed

Kean has been nothing but spectacular for Calcio, earning his starting spot in this team, and has continued working on his case as one of the best young strikers in the Italian League. Providing strong shot power, spring speed, and acceleration, he can create goal-scoring situations in a matter of moments, enabling your team to score more efficiently.

6.) Julian Alvarez (78 OVR / 87 POT)

  • Team: River Plate
  • Age: 21
  • Wage: £18.000
  • Value: £28.5 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 85 Acceleration, 84 Shot Power, 87 Aggression

Alvarez is looking for his ticket to the big leagues, and he’s been noticed by almost all high-profile scouts. He’s been linked to Manchester City one month ago, as he looks to bring his high potential to this market. As a manager, you should look into this player’s profile and sign him as a part of your rotation due to the high potential he provides and the immense qualities he possesses in acceleration, shot power, and aggression.

7.) Alexander Isak (82 OVR / 86 POT)

  • Team: Real Sociedad
  • Age: 21
  • Wage: £33.500
  • Value: £40.5 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 86 Positioning, 85 Sprint Speed, 83 Ball Control

Fans of Primera Division know about this young gem and the qualities he possesses as a striker. Isak has been one of the key factors of Sociedad’s success in Primera, and the high scores he possesses in Finishing, Positioning, and Sprint Speed only give additional proof for Isak and his playmaking ability as a striker. 

Many teams are eager to sign him, so as a manager, you should consider having him in your rotation, or even in the potential starting XI if you blend him well with another striker.

8.) Jonathan David (80 OVR / 86 POT)

  • Team: LOSC Lille
  • Age: 21
  • Wage: £32.000
  • Value: £37.5 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 87 Sprint Speed, 84 Positioning, 86 Jumping

David has been a key part of Lille’s recent success, and this young individual can be utilized in any team if you possess high managing skills. Jonathan can score easily, create his own situations or capitalize from assists easily, which is shown by the high scores of his offensive ratings. Due to the lower overall performance, he may not make it in your starting XI, but it is always nice to have him in your rotation, as the potential he provides is high up there on the list!

9.) Amine Gouiri (79 OVR / 86 POT)

  • Team: OGC Nice
  • Age: 21
  • Wage: £28.500
  • Value: £32.5 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 82 Acceleration, 82 Finishing, 82 Positioning

Similar to David, Gouiri has a low overall score compared to other strikers, but his potential is high, and he can deliver for any team that he’s signed. Don’t let the low overall numbers fool you, as he’s proven his worth in Nice over the previous season, capturing the attention of the elite clubs. Of course, there are better choices compared to him, but that doesn’t diminish the fact that he can be a valuable piece in your rotation.

9.) Charles De Ketelaere (76 OVR / 86 POT)

  • Team: Club Brugge
  • Age: 20
  • Wage: £18.000
  • Value: £15 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 79 Dribbling, 82 Ball Control, 83 Stamina

Charles is a huge utility for Club Brugge, but due to his high potential and his age, he could be on the move soon. He is a strong playmaker that can create chances for other strikers, as the Belgian player has been related mostly to De Bruyne with his playmaking abilities. Their position is not the same, however, but this striker can be a huge part of your successful offense if you know how to utilize it properly.

Most of them were ST due to the high potential and age filter, and we hope that this will help you in making the right choice for your offensive tactics. Of course, that offense itself doesn’t win games, the defensive part along with midfield needs to come along, but it sure helps when you have reliable, young strikers that are eager to prove themselves on the field!
