The midfield is the engine room of a football team, made up of architects and enforcers alike. You need players who are capable of threading a through ball into the path of the striker, but you also want players with stamina, who cover ground, tackle and block opposition attacks early.

Considering he is touted as a future Ballon d'Or winner, it is no surprise to see Barcelona playmaker Pedri at the top of the pile in terms of wonderkid midfielders in FIFA 23, with a potential rating of 93, which puts him behind only Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.

NXGN 2022 winner Jude Bellingham is also near the top, with a 91 potential rating - a reflection of his increasing stature for Borussia Dortmund and England. Germany and Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Florian Wirtz is considered to be on the same level as his Bundesliga rival Bellingham.

The USMNT's great hope Giovanni Reyna has a current rating of 77 and can reach a potential rating of 86, while familiar faces such as Bukayo Saka, Eduardo Camavinga and Gavi come in with potential ratings of just under 90.
