Kevin De Bruyne (OVR 91 - PAS 93)

DEADLY DELIVERY - De Bruyne will go down as one of the best passers ever

It's no surprise to see Kevin De Bruyne top the list of best passers around, with his 93 PAS stat putting him three better than his next rival.

In fact, you have to look to Prime Icon Moment cards if you're after someone with better stats than him, and even then there are only five of them!

Lionel Messi (OVR 91 - PAS 90)

STILL GOAT IT - Messi has always been great at finding an impossible pass

He's still one of the best-rated cards in the game, and although his pace may have dropped, Lionel Messi can still spot a killer pass.

Probably best utilised as a CAM now, his top passing and dribbling attributes make for a brutal combination.

Toni Kroos (OVR 88 - PAS 90)

KROOS CONTROL - Who says pace matters?

Hopefully, we see pace playing a more balanced role in FIFA 23, and if that is the case then we may see Toni Kroos getting a lot more play.

The German has had great ratings for years and is always one of the best passers in the game, but is let down massively by his speed.

Daniel Parejo (OVR 86 - PAS 90)

FORGOTTEN MAN - With so many superstars around, Parejo is often overlooked

Daniel Parejo is regularly near the top of the best passers around, yet he doesn't get the recognition of others on the list.

Much like Kroos, he suffers from poor pace but can control the tempo with the best around.

Luka Modric (OVR 88 - PAS 89)

LIKE A FINE WINE - Modric just gets better with age

Age is just becoming a meaningless number for modern footballers, and proof of that is Luka Modric.

Not only is he one of the best passers around, but he doesn't seem to be slowing down with age either.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (OVR 87 - PAS 89)

CROSSING KING - Not many can put the ball into the box like Trent

Much is made of Trent Alexander-Arnold's defensive capabilities, but one thing is for sure, he has a killer cross on him.

He is unlike any player we've seen, a playmaker who is also a RB.

Bruno Fernandes (OVR 86 - PAS 88)

WE DON'T TALK ABOUT BRUNO - Top passing is just one aspect of Fernandes' game

A killer playmaker and one of the hardest working players around, Bruno Fernandes is not to be overlooked.

Despite a slight downgrade in stats, he remains one of the best passers in the game.

Christian Eriksen (OVR 82 - PAS 88)

DELIGHTFUL DANE - United will hope Eriksen can take them to the top

Eriksen is renowned for his vision and is an anchor for any team in the midfield.

He will retain his overall and passing stats in FIFA 23 and remains a great pickup.

Joshua Kimmich (OVR 89 - PAS 87)

MULTI-TALENTED - Kimmich can play a variety of passes

Whether you are after someone to swing a cross into the box, play short little one-twos, or hit a raking ball across the field, Joshua Kimmich has it covered.

The Munich man has played in several positions over the years but looks most at home in his current CDM spot with the ability to roam around.

Marco Verratti (OVR 87 - PAS 87)

MINI MAGICIAN - The little man is like a terrier in the middle of the park

PSG's mini-maestro, Marco Verratti pulls the strings in midfield with ease.

Not only is he a pass master, but he also has top dribbling and is very effective defensively, despite his size.
