Serbian central-midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is in pole position for the Serie A's October Player of the Month award, having registered two goals and two assists in a month where Lazio went unbeaten, winning three matches and drawing one.

The 27-year-old could make for the perfect box-to-box centre-mid in FUT 23, standing at 6 feet 3 inches tall with incredible stats across the board along with four-star skill moves and a five-star weak foot.

Lautaro Martinez (OVR 89)

STAR STRIKER - Inter's talisman was on fire in October

Unfortunately for Inter fans, the Nerazzurri couldn't match Lazio's unbeaten record in October, having lost one match and won three, leaving them in seventh place in the Serie A table.

Argentinian striker Lautaro Martinez was on fire throughout, netting three goals and picking up one assist in just four appearances.

Rafael Leao (OVR 87)

FUT fanatics would LOVE to see Rafael Leao win the Serie A POTM. The Portugal international has made a good case for himself, scoring two goals on top of one assist in October.

AC Milan's perfect record of four wins from four matches could just edge it for Leao, who would receive an insane 87 OVR SBC card that could be game-breaking.

Nicolo Barella (OVR 89)

MIDFIELD MAESTRO - Barella can do everything in midfield

FUT fan favourite Nicolo Barella is the second Inter player on the shortlist, having registered two goals and two assists in the league last month.

Should he claim the Serie A POTM award, Barella will be handed an incredible 89-rated card that will likely possess not a single base stat below 80.

Mattia Zaccagni (OVR 82)

27-year-old Italian forward Mattia Zaccagni was Lazio's main man during their unbeaten league run in October.

The inverted winger managed to score three goals and pick up two assists last month which could land him an 82 OVR Player of the Month card in FUT.
