What is it with French football and wonderkids? Youri Tielemans, formerly of Anderlecht, is a young midfielder with bags of potential, as evidenced by this very list. He won’t come cheap in career mode, with a base value of just over £20m, but any outlay will be worth it – he could reach a rating of 90.

The Bundesliga is also blessed with an impressive array of wide players, with Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz and Leon Bailey all capable of being some of the game’s best talents.

Dani Ceballos and Alena could soon have a rivalry of the ilk of Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in Spanish Clasicos, as they can reach ratings of 88 and 87 respectively.

A number of players in English football could reach the level of 86. Ruben Neves from Championship winners Wolves, is one of the highest-rated players in Europe, while Richarlison’s stellar debut season in the Premier League has seen him receive a massive upgrade in ratings. Josh Onomah – an English talent – spent 2017-18 on loan at Aston Villa from Tottenham, while Wilfred Ndidi could become a star at Leicester City.
