Last time, I released some effective young Wingers and Defenders in Football Manager 2016 that are available at low price, and I also provided the minimum estimated cost on which you can buy the particular player.

However, before i proceed to this particular list, permit me to reintroduce what I discussed in the prior article: Best Active Young Players Available at Low Price (the parent article)

Before I went into that search, I had to bear four things in mind:

  • Firstly, I had to consider the role the player can best fit in.
  • Secondly, I considered an age range which is suitable. A type of age range which will allow the player to adapt fast, perform effectively in any first-team, and still have more time to develop further in future.
  • Thirdly, I had to observe their rate of development in both trainings and matches.
  • And lastly, I took a tour on the costs.

Role

As it's well known, there are over 13 positions on a pitch, each having some roles to choose from. However, because of this situation, there is immense number of players in the FM16 database that fell into the category I was after, playing in both the same and different roles.

Due to this, I decided to divide the whole list into five articles: Each providing the list of effective young but cheap Strikers, Midfielders, Winger, Fullbacks, and Defenders. Goalkeepers are not all that much of importance because if the right midfielders, defenders and fullbacks are there "active", then the kind of keeper present won't matter much.

Age range

In choosing an age range, I have to consider a range a decent player can adapt quickly while placed in the first-team. And I have to find a more active age range which will also give room for more development, providing more value in the transfer market (in case you wish to sell the player in future). But certainly, I don't need a very young age (15-17 of age) because at low cost, no under 18 is suitable for exclusive first-team play in FM16 database. I also don't need aged players because of future development and market value.

Viewing all the aspects, I decided to choose an age range of 19 to 24. I went on to select the best players within this age range, and also still available at low cost. Moreover, buying under aged players with suitable qualities for low club's first team is very difficult; most clubs don't like selling them, except on loan terms.

Rate of Development

Some players develop inconsistently, some are consistent, whilst others can be fast and consistent. Sometimes it depends on their potential rating stars, or the amount of playing time they get. But with a careful observation of their rate of developments in both trainings and matches, I selected those that proved consistent (sometimes pretty fast) in development

The Cost

Finding players that are in their 20s, possessing the highest qualities, and having the best rate of development can be very expensive to get. Some are available at a minimum of £8M. However, average clubs or clubs in second divisions find it difficult to sign those kinds of players and still meet up their wage demands.

With respect to that, I chose £5M to be the maximum availability cost, which means you can get these players below £5M. In terms of their wages, none surpasses £20,000 p/w under negotiable terms.

The list

As mentioned before, I will be presenting the list of cheap but effective young Strikes in FM16. These players are available for high, average, and low clubs.

In the below list, some of the players can play very well in different duties found in ST. Check them out!

Hint: The only way you can see the existence of these players is to set the database to advance mode. Select as many leagues as you like so that all the players in each league you chose will be available once you start your carrier.
