Best career mode strikers on FIFA 23

Who will be your star striker on FIFA 23's Career Mode?

Updated: Nov 2, 2022 9:25 am

There are very few things as exciting on FIFA 23 as sinking your teeth into a good Career Mode.

The things you want from a Career Mode vary from save to save, but a gunman up top is always important. Depending on which club you choose your budget will vary and the profile of player you want will vary too.

If you’re doing a Championship save, it’s difficult not to bring in a big beefy striker that suits the league. The main thing you’re always going to want is a forward who is young, who can develop and grow. 

Players like Mbappé and Haaland will not be on this list, despite how young they are. There are very few clubs in the world who could genuinely afford these players and they have both only just committed their futures to the club.

Taking all of that into account, here are who we think will be the best strikers for a Career Mode on FIFA 23 – these the players range in quality and price:

FIFA 23: Best Strikers in FIFA 23?

Name ClubNationalityRatingPotential
Antonio NusaClub BruggeNorway6888
Rayan CherkiOlympique LyonFrance7388
Charles De KetelaereA.C. MIlanBelgium7888
Youssofa MoukokoBorussia DortmundGerman6988

Moise KeanJuventusItaly7886
Henrique AraújoSL Benfica Portugal7185
Benjamin ŠeškoRed Bull SalzburgSlovenia7285
Wilfried GnontoLeeds UnitedItaly6985

None of the players on this list have peaked in their career yet because they are all quite young, which is key to a good Career Mode signing.

There are other good choices if you are at one of the really top top teams that have been left out, like Lautaro Martínez, who would be unaffordable to most clubs. 

FIFA 23: Old but gold

There are also a lot of great older strikers in the game if you do want to bring in an elder statesman to steady the ship. Players like Olivier Giroud and Edinson Cavani spring to mind, who are both in their 30’s but could be great if that’s the kind of place you want to take your save.

Unfortunately a few of the players on the list may move before the transfer window closes, and if they do they won’t be available for transfer again for a little while.

Moukoko will be the most desirable player on this list and in real life he may not fancy a  move away from Borussia Dortmund, but a lot can change in football.

If potential works the same way in FIFA 23’s Career Mode, as it has done in previous years. You shouldn’t worry too much as it is quite easy to make a player exceed their potential on the game.
