Goals win games. Forwards score goals. Therefore, the best teams want to sign the best forwards.

In FIFA 22, this is as true as it is in real life. Potent strikers and wingers can win matches by themselves. The two biggest signings of the summer in 2021 were both forwards, with Manchester City signing Jack Grealish and Chelsea breaking the bank to get Romelu Lukaku.

Erling Haaland is unsurprisingly the best wonderkid forward in FIFA 22 and has a price tag to match in Career Mode.

There are many cheaper players available, but they will require lots of game time and the correct training to reach their potential ability.

Rennes attacker Rayan Cherki is the prime example of this. The teenager can be signed for less than £10 million, but can develop into a winger with an overall rating of 88.

Further down the list, you can find even bigger bargains such as Red Bull Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko and FCSB winger Ovidiu Popescu.

Here are all the best young strikers and wingers in FIFA 22 Career Mode, ordered by their potential rating in the game.
