FIFA 22 Best Young RBs: Alexander-Arnold joined by MANY English talents

Finding a top quality right-back on Career Mode can support your team defensively as well as going forward, and it is even better if they are younger and can do that role for many more seasons.

There are many great, young right-backs around at the moment, so let us help you decide who to pick.

Jump To

The players on this list will either be a RB or RWB and aged 23 or under at the start of your FIFA 22 Career Mode save, giving you around a decade of use.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (OVR 87 - POT 92)

Age: 22

Position(s): RB

Advertisement

Value: £98 million (Release clause: £189 million)

Wage: £129,000 a week

He is already the best right-back in the game, and he is young, so surely this is a no-brainer and you should just get Trent Alexander-Arnold in your team?

The catch - a £189 million release clause!

If you do manage to get the funds together and force him away from Liverpool you may want to think about employing him as a CM in the future...

Achraf Hakimi (OVR 85 - POT 88)

Age: 22

Position(s): RB, RWB

Value: £60 million (Release clause: £115 million)

Wage: £86,000 a week

Despite not having as high a potential as Trent, Achraf Hakimi looks set to be most players' top pick for a right-back.

You will have to hold off signing him straight away, as he has just moved to PSG, but if you do wait you will be getting one of the fastest players in the game, who can do a decent role in most areas of the field.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (OVR 83 - POT 87)

Age: 23

Position(s): RB

Value: £42 million (Release clause: £80 million)

Wage: £99,000 a week

The second (and not the last) young, English RB on the list, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a true defensive player.

Legend has it that no man has dribbled past Aaron when he decides to slide tackle!

You may be tempted by more attacking players, but keep in mind that all his stats will improve as he reaches his peak.

Reece James (OVR 81 - POT 86)

Age: 21

Position(s): RWB, RB

Value: £32 million (Release clause: £61 million)

Wage: £65,000 a week

Another Englishman on this list, Reece James could add some power to your right-hand side.

If you like to whip in crosses then this could be you man, as he already has 86 Crossing and that will only go up.

Nordi Mukiele (OVR 81 - POT 85)

Age: 23

Position(s): RWB, CB, RM

Value: £30 million (Release clause: £53 million)

Wage: £56,000 a week

A FUT favourite, Nordi Mukiele's size (6'2") means he can also play at CB.

Wherever you choose to play him he will be solid.

Again, not the most adept at attacking, but you could get a bit of a bargain as his contract runs out in 2023.

Pedro Porro (OVR 80 - POT 87)

Age: 21

Position(s): RWB, RM

Value: £35 million

Wage: £69,000 a week

If you decide to play as Manchester City in your FIFA 22 Career Mode then you could be in for a welcome surprise when this fella returns from his loan.

Pedro Porro is small and agile, equally capable of taking players on as he is at regaining possession.

Noussair Mazraoui (OVR 79 - POT 84)

Age: 23

Position(s): RB

Value: £25 million (Release clause: £37 million)

Wage: £15,000 a week

If you don't want to break the bank then Noussair Mazraoui could be a real steal.

Small wages, a reasonable release clause, and if you're willing to wait it out his contract expires in 2022, so he could be yours for nothing!

Emerson (OVR 79 - POT 84)

Age: 22

Advertisement

Position(s): RB

Value: £22 million (Release clause: £43 million)

Wage: £60,000 a week

A victim of Barcelona's financial catastrophe, Emerson was forced out from a club he loves but has found a new home at Spurs.

If you like well-rounded players then Emerson fits the bill.

Matty Cash (OVR 78 - POT 83)

Age: 23

Position(s): RB, RWB

Value: £17 million (Release clause: £34 million)

Wage: £43,000 a week

The last Englishman on this list, Matty Cash enjoyed a great season with surprise package Aston Villa last term.

He received +3 on his previous overall rating and continues to impress as a mainstay in the Villa team, who look to push on following last seasons success.

Sergino Dest (OVR 76 - POT 85)

Age: 20

Position(s): RB, RM

Value: £13 million (Release clause: £30 million)

Wage: £58,000 a week

Sergino Dest has worked his way into the Barcelona first-team since joining for Ajax.

He has been used at RB, LB and LM this season, as Ronaldo Koeman's team struggles with injuries.
