Maxim Dekker starts FIFA 23 career mode as a 66 overall rated center back/left back with a potential rating of 80 overall, making him a solid player to have in your squad throughout your career mode playthrough. Dekker would be a great signing for squad debt due to his ability to play more than one position.
6 Ajax’s Youri Regeer

Vos is rated 60 at the start of career mode and has an impressive 83 overall potential rating. This makes him an easy pick-up for any team you want, and with a value of only €750,000 is well worth it.
3 AZ’s Myron Van Brederode
Myron is an 18-year-old winger who plays for AZ Alkmaar in the Eredivisie. He is already a decent winger with great stats, including a four-star weak foot, making him a goal-scoring threat from any angle, and three-star skill moves, making him a handful for defenders.

1 Ajax’s Devyne Rensch
Devyne Rensch, at 19, has already made a name for himself playing for Ajax in the Dutch league. However, he is still a hidden gem, given that he is not popular worldwide and his market value is still affordable for most teams.
