Each addition of FIFA has a certain player or team that is overpowered (OP) and becomes a fan favourite in the community.

On FIFA 20 we have seen Wissam Ben Yedder tormenting defences all year, with the likes of Seydou Doumbia and Victor Ibarbo doing the same way back on FIFA 13.

Find out below who we can’t wait to play with on FIFA 21.

Adama Traore (OVR 77 → 80)

Wolves winger Adama Traore has had an outstanding season providing eight assists and terrorising full backs with his pace and power.

Adama boasts a whopping 97 Acceleration and 84 Strength making him a real handful.

The 24-year-old is already popular in online game modes and could be in for an upgrade to his 77 overall.

A potential 80 OVR could make Adama almost unstoppable on FIFA 21.

Alphonso Davies (OVR 72 → 80)

Davies FIFA 21

We think Alphonso Davies will receive one of the biggest upgrades on FIFA 21!

The Canadian star has nailed down the left back spot for Bayern and is one of the hottest prospects around.

With 91 Pace already, Davies is a must-have for any FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) fans building a Bundesliga squad.

Career Mode fans will want in on the action too as Davies could become one of the world’s best left backs.

Bruno Fernandes (OVR 85 → 86)

Could Bruno Fernandes be Man Utd’s next superstar?

The early signs are promising with Fernandes bagging three goals and three assists in his first six games.

The Portuguese star will provide a great option for FUT Premier League squads, and his nationality provides good options for a hybrid squad too.

With 88 Long Shots, we expect Fernandes to be a real goal threat from midfield on FIFA 21.

Timo Werner (OVR 86 → 86)

Chelsea new boy Timo Werner will torment Ultimate Team players on FIFA 21.

With 92 Pace and 89 Finishing, Werner is one of the best strikers on FIFA and we expect that to continue.

With a Ones to Watch (OTW) card likely too, Werner will certainly be hot property on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Achraf Hakimi (OVR 82 → 82)

Will Achraf Hakimi oust Dani Carvajal from Real Madrid’s starting line up?

Whatever happens, Hakimi will again be popular on FIFA with his speed down the right-hand side.

With pace such a key factor on FIFA, Hakimi’s 96 Sprint Speed will make him one of the best options on FUT 21.

The Moroccan international’s return to Real Madrid will add to the plethora of stars available when building a La Liga squad.

Argentine ace Lautaro Martinez has struck up a super partnership with Romelu Lukaku at Inter.

Martinez has bagged 12 goals in Serie A this season and earnt himself a mid-season upgrade to 84 OVR on FIFA 20.

We don’t expect his overall to change on FIFA 21. However, he will still be an effective player in online and offline game modes.

With 84 Strength and 81 Pace, Martinez is a real handful for defenders.

Kylian Mbappe (OVR 89 → 89)

Kylian Mbappé FIFA 21

The next player to win the Balon D’or?

Kylian Mbappe is the most valuable player in world football right now.

Great pace, skill and general ability make the Frenchman one of the absolute best in the world, so it is no surprise that he is worth around 100,000 coins on FUT.

96 Pace, 91 Dribbling and 89 Finishing make for a lethal combination.
