It is nearly time for FIFA 22, which means that official ratings should be revealed soon!

One superstar has gone early though, with cover star Kylian Mbappe showing off his new ratings on Instagram.

Jump To

FIFA Career Mode is set to be mega this year, and if you can sign Mbappe early on you will have a world beater for years to come!

Latest news - Mbappe reveals new ratings

Kylian Mbappe has done things his own way and revealed his own card for FIFA 22 before any official ratings have been confirmed!

Upgrades of +1 PAC, +2 SHO, +2 PAS, +1 DRI and +1 PHY will make him even more of a threat in attacking areas.

While we don't know the specifics just yet, it looks a very good card indeed!

Defining Best Young Strikers

These strikers (either ST or CF) will all be aged 23 or under at the start of FIFA 22 Career Mode.

They will be expensive but should be worth the cash if they lead your attack from the best part of a decade.

We have taken their ratings from the latest FIFA 21 update (27 July 2021) and will update this page once the FIFA 22 ratings have become available.

Kylian Mbappe (OVR 91 - POT 95)

ON THE EDGE - That penalty miss at Euro 2020 could be a serious blip in Mbappe's promising career

Age: 22

Position(s): ST, LW

Value: £167 million (Release clause: £321 million)

Wage: £144,000 a week

Good luck signing Mbappe on FIFA 22 Career Mode - but the Frenchman's contract does expire next summer.

If you act quickly, you could snap him up for less than his value, but we would expect PSG to tie the world's most valuable player to a long-term contract.

Erling Haaland (OVR 87 - POT 93)

TERMINATOR - Haaland has become one of the hottest prospects in Europe

Age: 20

Position(s): ST

Value: £110 million (Release clause: £210 million)

Wage: £65,000 a week

Perhaps the hottest property on the transfer market, it's a matter of when not if Erling Haaland leaves Borussia Dortmund.

The Norweigan has netted 57 goals in 59 games for BVB, and looks destined to join one of the European heavyweights in the next 12 months.

Lautaro Martinez (OVR 84 - POT 89)

DEADLY DUO - Martinez & Romelu Lukaku have formed an old fashioned strike partnership at Inter

Age: 23

Position(s): ST

Value: £59 million (Release clause: £105 million)

Wage: £117,000 a week

Another striker being mooted around the transfer marker is Inter's Lautaro Martinez, who has bagged 31 goals and 15 assists in the last two Serie A campaigns.

The 23-year-old has linked up brilliantly with Romelu Lukaku in attack - but we can't see Inter breaking that strike partnership up any time soon.

Joao Felix (OVR 83 - POT 93)

PREDICAMENT - Joao Felix scored just seven goals in Atletico's title winning campaign

Age: 21

Position(s): CF, ST

Value: £73 million (Release clause: £163 million)

Wage: £55,000 a week

Not an out-and-out striker, but Joao Felix is still a highly dangerous forward.

Despite lifting the league title with Atletico Madrid last season, Diego Simeone may not be the perfect manager for £113 million man Felix - who scored just 10 goals last term in all competitions.

Alexander Isak (OVR 80 - POT 85)

WATCH THIS SPACE - Isak showed his class at Euro 2020

Age: 21

Position(s): ST

Value: £28 million (£62 million)

Wage: £26,000 a week

Alexander Isak showed his class at Euro 2020 with some classy performances for Sweden, backing up his 17-goal season for Real Sociedad.

Expect the 21-year-old to rip up La Liga for another season or two before a big move comes along.

Victor Osimhen (OVR 79 - POT 86)

JUST THE START - 10 league goals was a useful return in Osimhen's first season in Naples

Age: 22

Position(s): ST

Value: £36 million (Release clause: £68 million)

Wage: £49,000 a week

A useful first season in Italy for Victor Osimhen, with the Nigerian netting 10 goals in 24 Serie A matches.

With one season to settle, the Napoli fans will want to see the 22-year-old hit his stride to repay the £51 million transfer fee.

Donyell Malen (OVR 79 - POT 86)

ON THE MOVE - Malen has secured a £29 million move to Borussia Dortmund

Age: 22

Position(s): ST

Value: £32 million (Release clause: £52 million)

Wage: £17,000 a week

Does Donyell Malen's move to Borussia Dortmund pave the way for Erling Haaland to leave the club?

The 22-year-old has been snapped up for just £26 million, as BVB perform some more shrewd business - and we can't wait to see him and Haaland link up together.

Luka Jovic (OVR 79 - POT 84)

LAST CHANCE SALOON - Time is running out for Luka Jovic to repay his £58 million fee

Age: 23

Advertisement

Position(s): ST

Value: £25 million

Wage: £117,000 a week

It's now or never for Luka Jovic - with the Serbian scoring just two goals for Real Madrid since his £50 million move from Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 23-year-old was loaned back the German outfit after a tricky season, and could still only net four times in 18 appearances.

Moise Kean (OVR 78 - POT 86)

WHERE NEXT - Kean's future is unclear following his loan spell at PSG

Age: 21

Position(s): ST, RW

Value: £28 million

Wage: £56,000 a week

Moise Kean's future is an interesting one, with a permanent move to PSG not materialising.

New Everton manager Rapahel Benitez appears keen on the Italian, but he is still behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison in the pecking order at Goodison.

Tammy Abraham (OVR 78 - POT 85)

TAKE YOUR CHANCE - A move away looks most likely for Abraham to get regular gametime

Age: 23

Position(s): ST

Value: £26 million (Release clause: £55 million)

Wage: £69,000 a week

Another young forward who could be on the move this summer, Tammy Abraham is said to be available for around £40 million.

Arsenal and West Ham are linked with the Chelsea forward, who was the club's joint-top scorer last term, despite playing 20 games less than Timo Werner - who also bagged 12.
