FIFA 23 Bournemouth Ratings: Sensational Solanke will lead line for newly-promoted Cherries

FIFA 23 is just around the corner, and it won't be long until we get our first look at some of the brand-new ratings for each team.

Check below to see our predictions for how AFC Bournemouth could look in this year's game.

Top Players

Bournemouth bounced back into the Premier League under the stewardship of Scott Parker, with the Cherries impressing at the start of the season.

The second half of the campaign wasn't so pretty, but who cares when you get the job done?

Dominic Solanke was the standout star for Parker's men, and he's certain to lead the line once more for a Bournemouth team full of underrated gems in FIFA 23.

Dominic Solanke

Solanke finally made his price-tag count last season, with the striker notching 30 times for the Cherries.

SCORING STAR - Solanke impressed last season

By far and away Bournemouth standout man last term, we think the Liverpool academy prospect is due an impressive upgrade to reflect his dominant season on the south coast.

Jefferson Lerma

A key figure at the heart of the Bournemouth midfield, Lerma is a player with a great footballing brain.

MIDFIELD GENERAL - Lerma will likely stay at the same rating this year

A dominating figure who helped Bournemouth achieve their goals last season, we think Lerma will once again be a great starting option for your Premier League squads in FIFA 23.

Chris Mepham

Bournemouth may not have the strongest defence in the Premier League on paper, but there's no doubting that Mepham is a player that deserves more respect.

POWERHOUSE - Mepham is back in the big time with Bournemouth

There's every chance the Welshman is boosted to gold, but for now, we've got him reaching the peak of the Silver-raiting cap.


Bournemouth have been pretty quiet in the transfer market, not rushing to spend major money on new signings.

Instead, they have done steady business, bringing in talents like Rothwell and Tavenier from the league below.

ONE TO WATCH - Tavenier could take the Premier League by storm

With more additions likely before the end of the window, there's no doubt that the Cherries will be up against it as the season rolls on.


Following their impressive promotion, many of the Bournemouth team will gain much-deserved upgrades.

Dom Solanke, Chris Mepham and Ryan Christie will all likely be boosted following impressive campaigns last term.

BIG MAN UP TOP - Kieffer Moore will surprise a few this season

One player we can't wait to see in FIFA 23 is Kieffer Moore, with the Welsh striker offering the Cherries a completely different dynamic.

They may not have the strongest squad rating, but there are certainly some underrated gems operating in this Bournemouth squad.


Promotion usually dictates top performances, so it would be unfair for many - if any - Bournemouth players to suffer downgrades.

That being said, we are expecting an upgrade for new 'keeper Neto, who joined on loan from Barcelona this summer.

SAFE HANDS - Neto will likely be downgraded in FIFA 23

Still an impressive shot-stopper, we just feel that a downgrade on the 82 OVR rating he received last year is deserved.

All in all, we're very much looking forward to seeing just how many people this Bournemouth side can surprise, both in real life and in FIFA 23.
