FIFA 19 Wonderkid Best Buys

Kangin Lee is a clear one to watch here, along with Riqui Puig and Pietro Pellegri. Generally though, any player on this list has the legs to go far in FIFA 19, and can be a great investment if you raise them up then sell them later down the line.

Why You Should Buy Wonderkids in FIFA 19

When you think of the best young footballers in the world, your mind will no doubt go to players like Donnarumma and Mbappe. And while these are undoubtedly great players, they’re also incredibly expensive, and difficult to poach from their established teams. Instead, you’ll want to focus on lesser known players, or Hidden Gems. These Wonderkids have the potential to become some of the best players in FIFA 19, so definitely consider adding some of the players listed above, into your squad.

While it would be great to sign Mbappe, he's gonna cost you a pretty penny.

Tips on Making the Most of Your FIFA 19 Hidden Gems and Wonderkids

In FIFA 19, just buying Wonderkids isn’t going to be enough to guarantee great players. You’ll need to regularly play the young players you’ve bought, keeping them in regular rotation and training. This will allow them to reach their full potential, and is what will take them from being good players to great ones. Keep an eye on the morale of these FIFA 19 Wonderkids, and you’ll be able to get the most out of them. If you're really playing the long game, it might even be worth accepting mid-table finishes for a few seasons while your young team grows into title contenders.

A good way to grow a player is to satisfy any requests for matches that pop up while playing. You want to keep their morale as high as possible, so be sure to check in every now and then. You should also consider placing your FIFA 19 Wonderkids in training, and investing in the best trainers that you can.

Now that you know which Hidden Gems to target, all you need to do is search for them on the global transfer market. You can send out your scouts to find these players, and eventually you'll be able to negotiate for them.
