FIFA 23 Best Free Agents
Free Agents in FIFA don't always match up with real-world standings at the start of Career Mode, and can often be auto-assigned to a club when you first load up a campaign.
Throughout FIFA 23's cycle, the free agent market has consistently changed, with even Cristiano Ronaldo being available at one point in time.
Below, we've listed the stars available in the most recent update, meaning you can jump in straight away and bag these bargain stars.
Here are some of the best players that are currently out of contract and could be found as Free Agents at the start of FIFA 23 Career Mode.
As you'll notice with many of these players below, a lot of them hail from Mexico, with that league most recently ending and contracts expiring.

This means that most of the best players in the free agent market are from Mexico and the US.
Fear not, whilst this may narrow the margins there are still a number of incredible talents available, with Mexico in particular offering some really exciting talents.
None more so than forward Henry Martin, with the striker immediately able to step into your team and become a competitive and clinical forward.
Keep an eye on Carlos Rodriguez as well, as this man can quickly grow and provide some major profit.
Unfortunately, there aren't many wonderkids on the free agent market in FIFA 23 Career Mode, with only one player truly matching the criteria.
Matthew Garbett, an Australian midfielder, can be signed for absolutely nothing and quickly raised into a solid top-division starter.
With a potential rating of 78, Garbett is the clear pick of the bunch, but there's nothing to say that you couldn't also assist in raising the other two youngsters on this list.
You'll be pleased to hear that there are some real hidden gems on the free agent market and these stars are the guys who are the most exciting.

Israel Reyes, a Mexican defender, has all the capabilities to grow to an 83 overall, making him the free agent with the most potential in FIFA 23.
Lainez and Sonora are also top talents to keep an eye on, with all of these players able to make an impact in both the short and long term.
Of course, scouting the market carefully could see you find some hidden gems that fit your playstyle even better, so we would suggest giving these guys a try.
At the end of the day, they cost nothing!
What is a 'Free Agent' in Career Mode?
A Free Agent is a player who is currently not signed with a club, so is eligible to sign with other clubs immediately.
This means you can sign a Free Agent for no transfer fee in Career Mode.
However, though Free Agents won’t cost you a single penny to sign and you’ll have access to them immediately, you need to keep an eye on your wage bill as some players come with hefty demands.
Always keep an eye out in the Free Agent section of the transfer market, as you can find some real gems in there, and if you don't act quickly, another club will!
