Young wingers who aged 23 and under in FIFA 17: Part 2
In FIFA 17, or... In a football video game, we should learn to find more potential players in the game. It can be quite easy to find young talent on FIFA 17’s career mode, but separating the best from the rest is the tricky part. With pace now playing a more prominent role in this year’s version of the game, finding a young, speedy winger with heaps of talent can provide you a reliable player for the best part of a decade. Here is the man who aged 23 and under in FIFA 17:
Samu Castillejo (OVR 80 – POT 87)
Who? Not a name you’ll recognise but with 42 appearances for Villarreal last season, 21-year-old Samu Castillejo has a lot of experience under his belt last season. He still needs to add goals to his game with just four in 84 games throughout his career, but his movement (87 acceleration, 87 sprint and 84 agility) make him a real danger. With four years still remaining on his contract, he will cost you around £27m and £36,000 wages.
Stephan El Shaarawy (OVR 81 – POT 86)
Towards the end of his time at AC Milan Stephan El Shaarawy wasn’t having a good time of it, and a loan at AS Monaco didn’t change his fortunes. But AS Roma took him on loan in January, and six goals in nine league games got his career back on track. The Giallorossi bought him at the end of the season, and he’s already bagged a goal and an assist so far this campaign. Still only 23, the left winger can offer you 87 sprint speed, 87 ball control and 86 acceleration, and with a cheeky 75 finishing, he can be dangerous cutting in from the left. He should cost around £26m, with his wages at £50,000 per week.
Bernardo Silva (OVR 81 – POT 88)
AS Monaco man Bernardo is beginning to turn heads around Europe after a superb season in Ligue 1 last season, where he scored seven goals. The Portuguese can play on the right hand side of midfield, and as an attacking or central midfielder. The 21-year-old will offer you 85-rated agility, 83 reactions and 83 dribbling, perhaps ideal for sides playing with a disciplinde 4-4-2 system. He will set you back around £25m with £36,000 wages.
Nabil Fekir (OVR 81 – POT 87)
Nabil Fekir was hit by injury last season, which limited him to nine matches for Olympique Lyonnais, but still scored four goals. The right winger or striker has 89 balance, 88 composure, 88 agility, 87 dribbling and 87 ball control on FIFA 17, meaning he has many weapons to hurt the opposition. The 22-year-old can be yours for around £28m and £43,000 for wages.
Gerard Deulofeu (OVR 81 – POT 88)
Right midfielder Gerard Deulofeu was a welcome return to Goodison Park last season, but other than Romelu Lukaku, he lacked teammates to work with. The Spaniard is incredibly fast with 93 agility, 92 sprint speed, and 89 acceleration as well as 89 dribbling, making him a threat around the box. The 22-year-old only as two years remaining on his contract so he could be yours for around £20m as well as £36,000 for wages.
