Ciro Immobile is the only player to have picked up three in-form cards so far on FIFA 20. It wouldn't be a surprise for him to be selected as Headliner at this point.

Timo Werner is still just 23 years old, but he’s playing like a striker in his prime. 18 goals and six assists in just 17 Bundesliga games demonstrates his talent. 

As a result, he’s already earned two in-form cards, so a Headliners card is a definite possibility.
