Price Rises

If you have any of these items, there is no better time to sell them on the transfer market.

Callum Hudson-Odoi – 2300 coins (+76.98%) Xbox One

For those of you that remember, Callum Hudson-Odoi featured as our top price dropper in our last FUT market analysis before Christmas – well now, his price has risen by almost 80% in the last week, and more than doubled since our last market analysis!

With stats of 86 acceleration, 84 sprint speed and 82 dribbling, it’s unsurprising that the 18 year old’s silver card has risen in price. If you invested in him a few weeks ago, now is the time to sell!

DeAndre Yedlin – 2300 coins (+35.28%) Xbox One

DeAndre Yedlin’s first half of the 2019/20 season has been plagued with injury – as such, the American has only made 11 appearances, contributing just one goal and no assists. However, this has not deterred FIFA players from buying Yedlin’s card.

His defensive stats of 72 sliding tackle and 75 standing tackle may not be the strongest, but his 92 sprint speed more than makes up for it. With a pacey wing back who can overlap the advanced winger being so crucial in modern play styles, it’s unsurprising that Yedlin’s price has risen.

Joe Gomez – 1300 coins (+18.18%) PS4

After Matip faced a devastating blow in the form of his knee injury, Joe Gomez has really stepped up, helping Liverpool in their incredible unbeaten run so far this season.

The centre back’s price rise is likely a result of his 85 sprint speed and 82 standing tackles – he’s clearly OP. If you want to trade him in, you’ll get the best price now, however think twice as he is an incredibly useful player to own.

Bernd Leno – 6300 coins (+16.67%) Xbox One

Arsenal’s German man between the sticks has experienced a continued price rise on the Xbox One FUT market recently, with his price now at 6300 coins. The ‘keeper has a solid set of stats with 85 GK reflexes and 84 GK positioning being stand-outs.

Price Drops

It could be time to invest in these stars whilst they’re cheap.

Paulinho – 5700 coins (-20.82%) Xbox One

Our top price dropper this week is none other than Brazilian midfield maestro, Paulinho. The ex-Barcelona man has traded La Liga for the Chinese Super League, but with 92 stamina, 84 positioning and 84 ball control he remains a top talent.

This is just about the best price you’ll get for the Brazilian, so if you’re planning to integrate some Chinese league players in to your FUT squad, he’s a must-have.

Leon Bailey – 1600 coins (-19.99%) Xbox One

Leon Bailey is an absolute pace merchant. With sprint speed of 90 and 86 agility, it’s no wonder this gold card is so popular amongst FUT players, resulting in many price fluctuations.

Now that Bailey’s card has a reduced price, he would make a sound acquisition – even if he doesn’t fit in to your first team, a super sub with 91 pace shouldn’t be snubbed.

Nabil Fekir – 5700 coins (+13.64%) Xbox One

With four goals and two assists in 15 appearances, it would seem that Fekir has settled in to La Liga with ease, after his move from Lyon over summer.

The Frenchman’s incredible dribbling stats (91 balance, 90 dribbling, 89 ball control), combined with his newfound La Liga chemistry make him a very useful card – now is a great time to buy him at a discount price.

Arturo Vidal – 5000 coins (-10.72%) PS4

For the past 10 years, Vidal has been one of the best CMs in the world. His trademark no-nonsense style has meant he has often gone under the radar, but the fact he has played for, and won league titles with Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona, is testament to this.

In FIFA 20, his 93 aggression, 86 stamina and 85 defending make him perfect for a defensive midfield role, and if you boost him with a Shadow chemistry style, he becomes even better. At this price, he’s a great buy.
