5. Dries Mertens – 84 OVR

He might be 34 years old, but he can still do bits. Mertens is a wise player with excellent positional play and his speed (85 pace) is still really good for his age. So expect this guy to remain top-tier for a little while longer.

4. Roberto Firmino – 85 OVR

"Bobby" Firmino really went crazy during the Festival of FUTball at the end of FIFA 21, and he seems to have been rewarded for it with these stats. Five-star skills and four-stars for the weak foot - nice!


3. Memphis Depay – 85 OVR

Barca's new attacking center star has had a very successful time at Olympique Lyon. The flexible striker can give this team some much-needed help right now. Of course, he's not a complete replacement for Messi. But then, nobody is.

2. Paulo Dybala – 87 OVR

Juve desperately needs Dybala in their current form, especially since CR7 went back to Manchester United. Let's hope he can do something special for them.

If you're looking for a center forward, you'll have a hard time beating Dybala.

1. Karim Benzema – 89 OVR

The only one who puts Dybala in the shade. Benzema is an absolute force on the pitch, and so as many of you have probably predicted, he's been rightly rated as the best center forward in FIFA 22.
