If you are looking for a versatile centre back then Fosu-Mensah is an excellent option. The Manchester United develops into one of the best centre backs in the game, but can also excel at DM. Strong, quick, and with excellent tackling stats.

Donyell Malen

Club: Vitesse  Age: 18 Position: Right Back  Starting Value: £130,000

Rick Karsdorp and Kenny Tete are excellent Dutch right backs in the game, but a cheaper option would be Kevin Diks, who also develops into a Netherlands international. Strong and quick, with good crossing and tackling stats.

Club: Utrecht  Age: 19  Position: Central midfielder  Starting Value: £600,000

The midfielder starts the game in high demand with major clubs around Europe, and if you can fend off the interest to land the 19-year-old then you are getting a midfielder with excellent passing and technique.

Club: Ajax  Age: 18 Position: Attacking midfielder  Starting Value: £145,000

The pint sized midfielder is one of the most highly rated youngsters at the start of the game and turns into one of the best attacking number 10’s in Europe. Excellent technique, passing, and finishing. A future Wesley Sneijder.

Club: Ajax  Age: 15 Position: Centre Back/DM  Starting Value: £24,500

Like Fosu-Mensah, De Ligt is a versatile defender, who can also be deployed in midfield. Only 15 at the start of the game, but De Ligt quickly develops into a world beater with strong tackling stats and technique.

Club: Willem II (on loan from Ajax) Age: 18  Position: Striker  Starting value: £925,000

The striker begins the game on loan with Willem II, but a season into the game a scramble takes place to sign Zivkovic from Ajax. One of the best young strikers in the game, Zivkovic becomes Netherlands first choice number nine with great pace, strength, finishing and heading stats. A must buy.
