World Cup winner Lautaro Martinez netted three goals in five appearances in April, taking his tally to 17 league goals for the season.

The Argentine forward now trails only Napoli striker Victor Osimhen in the race for the Golden Boot. Unfortunately, Inter's record of two wins, one draw and two losses in April could hinder his chances of claiming the POTM award.

Should he claim the April Serie A POTM award against the odds, Martinez could be handed a 90 OVR item that boasts 90 Dribbling, 89 Shooting, 88 Physicality and 87 Pace.

Rafael Leao (OVR 89)

Having claimed the Serie A Player of the Month award back in October, Rafael Leao is the front-runner once again this time around.

The Portuguese winger registered four goals and one assist in five matches in April - a month in which AC Milan went unbeaten in the league.

The 23-year-old is set to receive a brilliant 89 OVR POTM item in FUT 23 with 95 Pace, 91 Dribbling and 84 Shooting.

Lorenzo Pellegrini (OVR 88)

AS Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini has been excellent for Jose Mourinho's side over the past several weeks.

The Italian centre-mid netted two goals in five appearances over the course of Roma's five matches, where they won three, drew one and lost one.

Should the 26-year-old claim the POTM honours this month, he could receive an 88 OVR special item that possesses 89 Dribbling, 88 Passing, 84 Pace and 83 Physicality.

Simone Verdi (OVR 87)

Three goals in five league matches in April puts Simone Verdi's name among the nominees for the Serie A Player of the Month award.

His side managed to claim eight points from a possible 15 last month, with a record of two wins, two draws and one loss.

Verdi's potential POTM item could reach 87 OVR with some quality stats including 91 Pace, 90 Dribbling, 88 Shooting and 87 Passing.

Mattia Zaccagni (OVR 88)

Italian winger Mattia Zaccagni has been brilliant for Lazio all season long and is fully deserving of an April Player of the Month nomination.

The 27-year-old managed to pick up one goal and two assists in five appearances in April, helping his side to three wins.

Zaccagni could claim an 88 OVR POTM card that will likely fall below the power curve with 93 Pace, 92 Dribbling and 85 Passing.
