Football Manager 2023 Best Strikers

Football Manager 2023 is almost here, with brand new features announced for this year's game.

With that in mind, we know gaffers will already want to start planning those shortlists ahead of this year's game, and we've got you covered for the best strikers you can sign in FM23.


From certified stars that will break the bank to those who won't cost the earth, we've got something for everyone on this list.

Top Stars

There are no two better strikers in FM23 than Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.

The two rising stars are scoring goals for fun and we're sad to report that it's near-on impossible that you'll be able to sign either of them whilst in their prime.

Name Club Value Rating
Cristiano RonaldoManchester United167
Harry KaneTottenham179
Erling HaalandManchester City177
Kylian MbappePSG186
Lautaro MartinezInter Milan166
Robert LewadowskiBarcelona190
Karim BenzemaReal Madrid180

Most of the strikers on this list are touching towards 30, but Lautaro Martinez is the obvious standout as a player that is young, prolific and relatively affordable.

Your other top choice is Harry Kane, with the lure of trophies potentially enough to take him away from Spurs.

Hidden Gems

We all love a hidden gem in Football Manager 2023 and the following stars fill that criteria brilliantly.

Name Club Value Rating
Youssef En-NesyriSevilla151
Patrik SchickBayer Leverkusen147
Moussa DembeleLyon140
Moise KeanJuventus144
EvanilsonFC Porto141
Maxi GomezValencia150

Youssef En-Nesyri is a star for the here and now who won't cost the earth but will return plenty of goals for your side.

Similarly, Bayer Leverkusen Patrik Schick is another top choice, with the dominant forward more than capable of hitting 20 goals a season.

A true FM hidden gem is Porto striker Evanilson, with the 21-year-old more than capable of growing into a dominant star.


Potential Heroes

Strikers can never truly be classed as a bargain buy as all clubs will demand a top fee, but these stars can at least be picked up for a cheaper price than the names mentioned above.

Name Club Value Rating
Pietro PellegriMonaco125
Yuri AlbertoZenit128
Suphanant MueantaBuriram United107
Bongokuhle HlongwaneMinnesota United108
Antoine SemenyoBristol City117
Joel PiroeSwansea City127

Pietro Pellegri of Monaco is a top choice and a striker that could well go far in this year's game.


The same can be said for Antoine Semenyo at Bristol City, with the sharp and prolific young striker capable of growing into an established star in FM23's top leagues.
