FM21: All the Best Left Midfielders (ML, AML) to Sign - Neymar, Mane, Hazard & more

Having good wingers can propel your side to another level.

Whether they are playing in a flat 442 and helping out at both ends of the pitch or playing further afield in an AML position, they are invaluable to the side.

Here are the best of the best in FM21.

FM21 Best Left Midfielders

There's no toing and froing here, this is just the out and out best left midfielders in the game.

We are basing this solely off their CA, meaning that as soon as you start your save, these are the best left sided attackers on offer to you.

Neymar Jr (CA 181)

Neymar Jr FM21

Age: 28

Club: Paris Saint Germain

Country: Brazil

Best Attributes: 20 Dribbling, 20 Flair, 20 Technique

Value: £83M

Wage: £850k p/w

There are plenty of top-tier LM in FM21, but none more so than PSG's Neymar.

The Brazilian is known for his techinical ability and flair, with it coming as no surprise that both are maxed out at 20 OVR on FM21.

HIs £83M valuation is reflective of his current club and his potential. Not many will be able to afford him, but those that can will get themselves a superstar.

Sadio Mane (CA 180)

Sadio Mane FM21

Age: 28

Club: Liverpool

Country: Senegal

Best Attributes: 18 Pace, 18 Natural fitness, 18 Acceleration

Value: £77M

Wage: £180k p/w

Closely following Neymar Jr is the left-sided member of Liverpool's incredible front three, Sadio Mane.

It's Mane's speed-related statistic that dominates his best attributes but his game is so much more than that, with his ability off the ball (16 OVR) key for anyone wanting their midfielders to graft too.

His value is less than that of Neymar Jr, and his wages a fraction of the cost.

Eden Hazard (CA 175)

Eden Hazard FM21

Age: 29

Club: Real Madrid

Country: Belgium

Best Attributes: 20 Dribbling, 19 Penalty Taking, 18 Technique

Value: £67M

Wage: £400k p/w

Eden Hazard's Real Madrid career has been largely disappointing, could you help him to rediscover his form in FM21?

His dribbling still remains up there with the best in the game at a maxed-out 20 OVR, and his ability to play centrally offers managers a handy extra alternative.

Leroy Sane (CA 169)

Sane FM21

Age: 24

Club: Bayern Munich

Country: Germany

Best Attributes: 19 Pace, 18 Dribbling, 17 Acceleration

Value: £59M

Wage: £300k p/w

A first trip to the Bundesliga now with recent Bayern Munich signing, Leroy Sane.

The 24-year-old has only just joined the reigning European Champions, so getting ahold of him may prove tricky, but with an incredible ability on the ball, he'd be worth the hassle.

An added bonus in that he is equally comfortable on the left or the right.

Heung-Min Son (CA 167)

Son FM21

Age: 28

Club: Spurs

Country: South Korea

Best Attributes: 18 Finishing, 16-18 Composure, 17 Work Rate

Value: £65M

Wage: £95k

Now if you're looking for an out and out goal getter, then Heung Min Son is the man for you.

The Spurs man has a very impressive 18-rated finishing as well as 16-rated long shots and 16-18 rated composure. Give him a chance in front of goal and the chances are, he'll take it.

Serge Gnabry (CA 165)

Gnabry FM21

Age: 25

Club: Bayern Munich

Country: Germany

Best Attributes: 17-19 Balance, 17 Acceleration, 17 Pace

Value: £57M

Wage: £125k p/w

We've got a feeling Tony Pulis won't be taking our advice here.

The German winger has gone from West Brom benchwarmer to a European star, offering you a cheaper alternative to Leroy Sane if you're after a German winger to light up your side.

£125k p/w is a steal for the quality you're going to get in return.

Angel Di Maria (CA 164)

Di Maria FM21

Age: 32

Club: Paris Saint Germain

Country: Argentina

Best Attributes: 17 Passing, 17 Technique, 17 First Touch

Value: £27.5M

Wage: £235k p/w

The final name in the list is one that has featured for many a year, PSG's Angel Di Maria.

At 32-years-old, Di Maria will start to wear away quite quickly, but with a value of around £30M, he could be a great short term addition for any team.

We'd recommend trying to pull down that £235k p/w wage though.
