Age: 19

Juventus is a club.

Fabio Miretti, the Juventus' finest academy graduate, is a formidable talent. He would make an excellent development addition to any top team, being a wonderful dribbler, passer, defender, and engine.

Miretti is in the process of forming a partnership with Juve's first team in the real world, but Max Allegri's version might not give him the same opportunity; take advantage of the clubs midfield congestion and get him out, swiftly.

  • Age: 20
  • Club: BSC Young Boys

Fabian Rieder is a name likely to become a household name as the BSC Young Boys prepare to exit their Europa League group this season. Despite his versatility, he offers solid performances and decent output: he has two goals and three assists to his name already this term.

Rieder will be a relatively inexpensive and extremely adaptable option that would make a great pick, particularly for those managing in the Bundesliga, where his skill set will fit perfectly.

Age: 17

Sporting CP is a club.

Dario Essugo is a true ball-winning midfielder who works as a lynchpin and keeping the ball moving at a decent pace.

Sporting values him highly, so hell be tough to acquire but worth every penny. Act fast, before others catch on.

  • Age: 19
  • Club: Bristol City

No, not the much-loved ex-Arsenal defender, although she might still be able to get back on her feet if you can coax her out of retirement. Bristol City's Alex Scott is making waves in the Championship. He has played mostly in an attacking midfield role for the club so far, but we think his profile suits the double pivot.

Scott is able to break lines with the ball at his feet and defeat opponents attacks without it, and anyone who manages outside of the Premier League's top six will fall in love with him.

  • Age: 20
  • Club: FK Molde

Sivert Mannsverk, a popular FM player from past seasons, will once again be a popular buy. He is a well-rounded midfielder who has the experience to excel at any level, and he will develop into an excellent number six or eight, depending on how you like to play him.

Mannsverk shifted from second-tier Sogndal IL to Norwegian title-contenders FK Molde last summer, meaning hell would be slightly more costly. However, players from the highest level of Norway rarely pay much in the way of fees, so he still represents a proven method of entertainment that will pay out.
