Best strikers in FIFA 22 Career Mode: Top prospects and cheap players

There’s no shortage of strikers to sign in FIFA 22 Career Mode, so here are our picks for the very best to fill out your squad.

FIFA 22 Career Mode offers fans more control than ever by letting them create their own club from scratch. But that doesn’t mean that choosing the perfect striker to grab the goals is any easier. We’ve put together the Best Strikers in FIFA 22 Career Mode you should sign.

Long before Ultimate Team came in a stole the show, Career Mode was the jewel in the crown of the FIFA series.

In FIFA 22, EA is giving the mode a much-needed revamp by allowing fans to build their own club, complete with a custom stadium, kits, and crest.

Even though it’s a neat addition, a great Career Mode ultimately comes down to the squad of players you build, and perhaps most important in that is those at the top end of the pitch. Here are the best strikers you should sign in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

There’s no denying that defenders and midfielders are also vital to building a team, but if you don’t score goals, you won’t win games. That’s why signing the perfect poachers should be top of the priorities list.

If you’re at a club battling it out for the top prizes, then you’re going to need the very best in front of goal.

Luckily, FIFA 22 has plenty of world-class finishers who can fire you to glory, whether you’re looking for someone quick who’s lethal on the counter-attack or a fox in the box who’s always in the right place at the right time.

Here are the best strikers you can pick up in the FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Best young strikers in FIFA 22 Career Mode

Bringing in an established striker might work well in the short term, but one of the most enjoyable parts of a Manager Career is watching your team grow over the course of many years.

That’s why it’s important to keep an eye on prospects when dipping into the transfer market because someone who may not look like much when you sign them could be one of the world’s best in a few seasons’ time.

There’s no shortage of young talent in FIFA 22, so here are the best wonderkids you should sign early on in your Career Mode.

Best cheap strikers to sign

SIgning at a world-renowned striker or a hot prospect will probably set you back a fair amount of money, but sometimes splashing out doesn’t make sense.

How to complete FIFA 22 Player Moments Ilkay Gundogan SBC

Ilkay Gundogan is looking like a great option in the midfield, and FUT players are going to want to complete his FIFA 22 Player Moments SBC.



Player Moments Gundogan SBC

Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is the latest player to receive a Player Moments SBC in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. Here’s everything you need to know including stats and how to complete Gundogan’s Player Moments SBC.

Player Moments cards have been somewhat of a disappointment in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team but this Ilkay Gundogan SBC can potentially break that trend.

Luckily, Gundogan is easy to link to squads thanks to his Manchester City allegiance and German nationality. Although this SBC is a touch overpriced, players looking for a quick dribbling central midfielder will want to give him a try.

Players will be required to submit four squads to get their hands on this German maestro, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

Gundogan’s two biggest assets are without a doubt his passing and dribbling which will allow you to breeze past defenders if used correctly. Gundogan is for the player that prefers a slow and methodic approach to Ultimate Team gameplay.

Unfortunately, his pace is a glaring weakness in the current Ultimate Team meta. Even central midfielders are now expected to boast a ton of pace and Gundogan simply does not have that quality.

To complete this SBC players will need to give up four squads: Tactical Emulation, Germany, Premier League, and 88-Rated Squad. With a value of around 600,000 coins, Gundogan is certainly overpriced but those desperate for a new midfielder should not find it hard to invest fodder into this FIFA 22 SBC.

FIFA FUT 22 Team of the Year Warmup Series: Start date, TOTY leaks, more

Before FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team TOTY event, EA Sports are dropping a special Warmup Series promo to build hype.



FIFA 22 TOTY Warm Up Series logo

Team of the Year is here, but before the full squad arrives, EA Sports are dropping the TOTY Warmup Series promo.

For the first time ever, EA Sports have decided to host a pre-TOTY event, with the Warmup preempting the release of the upcoming superpowered squad.

Because this is the first time it’s ever happened, there wasn’t a lot of information about this promo available to players. We can confirm that it’s linked to Team of the Year, and it will give players a chance to stock up on valuable packs.

Players can expect some SBCs, a handful of new packs, and maybe even a few player cards following its initial release. For now, here’s everything we know about FUT 22’s Team of the Year Warmup Series event.

FIFA 22 Team of the Year Warmup Series release date

The good news is that players won’t have long to wait for this promo to start. According to a loading screen in FIFA 22, TOTY Warmup Series will kick off on Friday, January 14.

As with all Ultimate Team promos, the promo will start at 6 PM GMT, adding new content to the game at that time.

TOTY Warmup Series leaks

Interestingly enough, FIFA leakers weren’t able to discover anything about this promo prior to its release.

As it turns out, EA have decided to throw players a curveball with the TOTY Warmup. Instead of receiving a collection of new promo cards, players have received new SBCs, Upgrade SBCs, and new Objectives.

Players will get a chance to earn some incredible new cards through these various means from now until the release of TOTY. EA has also granted players a free 83+ x3 pack that can be found in the FUT Store.

TOTY warmup series announcement

As of now, players can complete a Player Moments Ilkay Gundogan SBC, League Player Malang Sarr Objective, 83+ 3x defender, midfielder, and attacker upgrade SBC as well as two TOTY-themed SBCs.

We’ll be sure to keep updating this article as more information becomes available, while the TOTY Warmup Series continues.

In the meantime, make sure you’re using the best players possible with our guide to Ultimate Team’s best goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, and strikers.

How to complete Alexandre Pato FIFA 22 Flashback SBC

Alexandre Pato is one of the most electrifying strikers in FIFA 22, and FUT players are going to want to complete his Flashback SBC.



Flashback Pato solution

EA have decided to celebrate the career of Alexandre Pato by releasing a Flashback SBC for the Brazilian striker. Here’s how you can complete Pato’s Ultimate Team SBC and get your hands on an excellent forward.

Ultimate Team players are no stranger to incredible Flashback cards and it seems like Alexandre Pato is the latest to join a growing list that includes Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante.

The fact that Pato currently plays his football in the MLS will make him rather difficult to fit into squads but players should consider making room for him as the striker should be a goal machine leading the line.

Players will be required to submit three squads to get their hands on this Brazilian speedster, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

When examining Pato’s stats it’s difficult not to like what you see given how well-rounded of a striker he is. We knew that Pato was going to bring top-tier pace and dribbling to the table but his shooting and physical stats are a pleasant surprise.

86 strength and 94 jumping will be incredibly useful in the box while his 90 shot power and 87 finishing will lead to a ton of goals. Pato feels quick and responsive as a forward with mazelike dribbling ability and his 4* skills and weak foot are a huge bonus. If you use Brazilian players, Pato is a no-brainer SBC.

To complete this SBC players will need to give up three squads: Rossoneri, Seleção, and League Finesse. Considering the value, this is an incredibly affordable FIFA 22 SBC, costing about 145,000 coins in total.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.
