The Most Exciting U18 Player At Every Premier League Club According To FIFA 18

FIFA 18 has been out for while now and most gamers would have at least made a start on Career Mode, unless the highly addictive Ultimate Team has completely taken over as it tends to do for many.

If you have started a career somewhere, then you've probably sent your scout out to find some young talent that you can develop at your club, but we thought we would save you the time by checking out the best wonderkids at every Premier League club.

It's always interesting to see how EA Sports and their team of scouts/researchers choose as the players capable of growing into top players, and we've looked at the potential overalls of all the Premier League squads to pick out the diamonds that you can get for next to nothing early on in your career.

We've found the best player 18 years of age or younger at every club, although there are only 17 players on the list as Newcastle, Swansea, and Watford have actually got no teenagers on their squad in the game.

Arsenal


Reiss Nelson - RM - Potential Overall: 83

No surprise here, as Nelson has built on a great pre-season with some impressive showings in the Europa League thus far. Definitely one to watch out for.

AFC Bournemouth


Corey Jordan - CB - Potential Overall: 76

The young Bournemouth defender may not have his face in the game just yet but has potential to be a solid Premier League defender.

Brighton & Hove Albion


Jayson Molumby - CM - Potential Overall: 75

The only Irishman on the list, Bright's next best youngster is another Ireland youth international in Aaron Connolly so we'll be keeping a keen eye on Chris Hughton's side in the coming seasons.

Harry Limb - ST - Potential Overall: 72

A big part of Chelsea's extremely impressive youth sides, but unfortunately it's not the best club to be at if you want to break into the first team.

Crystal Palace

Palace need all the help they can get judging by their start to the season so don't be surprised to see Dreher in a few squads this season.

No surprises here. Woodburn is someone all Liverpool fans, and Wales fans for that matter, are extremely high on and for good reason. He looks to have all the tools to be an outstanding player.

Manchester City

Angel Gomes - CAM - Potential Overall: 89

Man Utd fans were furious that he wasn't in the game last year as he burst onto the academy scene and is now being talked of as one of the most exciting United academy prospects in years. Proud owner of the highest overall on this list, well worth signing if you can convince him to leave.

Newcastle United

Tyreke Johnson - RM - Potential Overall: 75

With a very quick development speed and the potential to be a leading player in the position, Quina would make a fantastic career mode purchase for any side.
