Youngsters set to battle it out for the FIFA 22 Cover Star honour

FIFA 21 still has plenty left to offer, with the Festival of FUTball promo in full swing.

However, with EA's next title coming over the horizon, fans are wondering who will headline this year's game.

So, check out who we think will be the FIFA 22 Cover Star below.

Who will be the FIFA 22 Cover Star?

As we know, PSG star Kylian Mbappe fronted up all three editions of FIFA 21.

A David Beckham edition has also been available, but will we see any new faces on the cover of FIFA 22.

We expect Mbappe to stay as the cover star for the foreseeable future as one of the world’s brightest talents.

Top Contenders

If EA does opt for someone else, it is likely to come from one of their current FIFA Ambassadors.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool right back Trent Alexander-Arnold could be one of the next in line if EA decide to use more than one cover star for FIFA 22.

HEY GOOD LOOKING - Is Trent ready to step up to become FIFA 22's cover star?

TAA is one of the top young players in the world and a crucial player in Jurgen Klopp’s successful side.

Erling Haaland

The sky is the limit for Norway and Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

UNSTOPPABLE - Haaland is perhaps the front runner for the Cover Star slot

EA has already signed Haaland as an ambassador, so we could definitely see the forward on the cover of FIFA at some point in his career!

NEXT GENERATION - Joao Felix's £114 million move to Atletico Madrid is a worthy price tag of a cover star

Another of EA’s prodigies, Joao Felix is starting to show why Atletico Madrid splashed over £100 million to bring him to the Spanish capital.

Like Haaland, Felix has a bright future ahead of him and he is certainly another player in contention for FIFA 22 cover star.

Phil Foden

One of the ‘FIFA Next’ crowd, Manchester City’s Phil Foden looks a class above every time he steps on the pitch.

ALL ROUNDER - Phil Foden's versatility is likely to make him an England and Man City regular for years to come

EA has surprised us before with young guns on their cover, but we think FIFA 22 may come a little early for Foden.

Mason Mount

Chelsea wonderkid Mason Mount is another young English player we could see on the front of FIFA in the near future.
