Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold epitomizes what is expected from the modern full back.

Manchester United right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is defensively one of the best full backs around.

Nordi Mukiele (OVR 80 – POT 87)

Mukiele

Age: 22

Position(s): RB, CB, RWB

Value: £16.7 million (£31.6 million release clause)

Wage: £41k

Emerson (OVR 78 – POT 88)

Emerson

Age: 21

Position(s): RB, RM, RWB

Value: £13.5 million (£31.1 million release clause)

Wage: £15k

On-loan Brazilian defender Emerson appears to be signed permanently on FIFA 21, so you can sign him straight off the bat.

Gonzalo Montiel (OVR 78 – POT 85)

Montiel

Age: 23

Position(s): RB, RWB

Reece James (OVR 77 – POT 86)

James

Age: 20

Position(s): RB, CDM

Value: £11.3 million (£23.6 million release clause)

Wage: £44k

Another play with strong attributes across the board, except shooting! Reece James may have something to say about that after his thunderbolt against Brighton.

James’ 81 Crossing and 81 Spring Speed are his best stats, though with 86 potential they will rise considerably.

Noussair Mazraoui (OVR 77 – POT 83)

Mazraoui

Age: 22

Position(s): RB, CM

Value: £9.9 million (£15.8 million release clause)

Wage: £12k

Value: £9.9 million (£20.8 million release clause)

Wage: £24k

Zeki Celik has starred in Lille’s uneaten start to the Ligue 1 season, helping keep four clean sheets and bagging a goal too!

Defensively astute and hardworking, Celik may not offer as much going forward but he is certainly a solid right back.

Joakim Maehle (OVR 76 – POT 81)

Mæhle

Age: 23

Position(s): RB

Value: £8.1 million (£12.8 million release clause)

Wage: £12k

Diogo Dalot (OVR 76 – POT 85)

Diogo Dalot

Age: 21

Position(s): RB, LB

Value: £9.9 million

Wage: £50k

The arrival of Wan-Bissaka at Old Trafford has seen Diogo Dalot’s game time limited. However, the Portuguese full back has gone on loan to Milan to rediscover his form.
