Who is the best striker in FIFA 22 Career Mode? Grabbing a goalscorer is essential to your success as a team, no matter how solid you are throughout the rest of the pitch. We're here to solve that problem for you.
We've built this list with a few factors in mind. Firstly, current ability. These players have to be able to slot into most sides with ease, and beat out existing rivals.
Secondly, longevity. Robert Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the world, but at 33 years old he's isn't going to lead your line for a decade. In fact, he's probably due a well-deserved retirement fairly soon. We're looking at players aged 28 or younger - players in their prime who can bring you continental glory swiftly.

You know all about Kylian Mbappe. PSG's superstar striker, you'll have your work cut out getting this guy signed up. A financial takeover might be necessary. Still, if you can get that sorted and somehow manage to get this guy on your team, you won't have trouble scoring goals for years to come. 5 star skills, 4 star weak foot, ludicrous pace, and exquisite dribbling and shooting ability, Mbappe really is the full package.
Want a striker who can truly offer everything, from pace to power? Haaland is 6ft 4in and an absolute beast in every way. He's fast, strong, a fantastic finisher (you'll have some long-shot screamers if you use him right), and has a lot of potential improvement to make if you take the time to train him properly. It'll be easier to prise Haaland away from Dortmund than it would be to grab Mbappe from PSG, too.
Outside of the 'big two' of Mbappe and Haaland, Martinez is going to be the go-to future star. At 24 he's right at the cusp of his prime years, so buying him as soon as possible will give you an out-and-out striker for years to come. He's a really good all-rounder, and will turn into a goal machine provided he gets the right service. Of course, he won't come cheap, but if your big club is in need of a striker, Martinez is the one to target.
Atlético's Joao Felix is the next great golden boy to emerge onto the world stage at the club. Unless you grab him first. Already rated 83 with fantastic ball skills and link-up play, he has an enormous amount of potential given his young age. He's versatile, too - play him in a CF role behind a more traditional striker if you want!
What is there to say about Romelu Lukaku? He's tall, strong, a deadly finisher, and an all-round brilliant player. Chelsea have just signed him, so it'll take a lot to get him off their books, but Lukaku is the complete player, and everything you'll ever need to take you to immediate glory.
Kane is in a similar situation to Lukaku - even Pep Guardiola struggled to get him signed up. Still though, it's hard to argue with his production, and in FIFA 22 you'll get a fair few years of great play out of him before he starts to decline. He's not even reliant on pace, so most of Harry Kane's best attributes like his 5 star weak foot and absolutely ridiculous finishing stats will stick around for years to come.
Napoli's Osimhen is a bit more of a project. Slightly old to be classed as a 'wonderkid', but too young to have fully realised his amazing potential. As an 80 overall, he'll slot nicely into your squad as soon as you get him in, and with every passing season you'll see steady improvements to his game. He's already solid across the board, but just you wait until he starts approaching 87 overall. This man will dominate in any league in the world.
Those of you managing Everton, you're in luck. With both Dominic Calvert-Lewin (at 81 overall with 85 potential) and Richarlison aged 24 leading the line, the forward position isn't something you'll have to worry about for a long, long time. Richarlison is a great dribbler of the ball and will work fantastically supporting a more traditional, out-and-out striker, but with the right squad around him you'll be able to make him work as the talisman of your team.
Italian forward Moise Kean is an absolute treat when it comes to his stats and potential. He's just 21, but already a 79 overall, and this'll only improve with time. We wouldn't be at all surprised if he surpassed his 87 potential, too. He's got great shot power and solid finishing along with being speedy, strong, and exactly the kind of player we like to have leading the line in FIFA career modes. The only weakness is his 3 star skill moves and weak foot, but otherwise Kean is the ideal man to lead you to glory.
Tammy Abraham has a surprising amount of development for a 24 year old, going from 78 overall to 86. He's not the fastest man on the pitch, but this is made up for enormously with some seriously impressive dribbling and shooting stats. Given time, he might just be the new Harry Kane.
Luis Javier Suarez, like his namesake Luis Suárez of Atlético, has the potential to be a clinical finisher for long-term success in your FIFA 22 career mode. The former Watford striker never saw a Premier League appearance, but with 4 star weak foot and some really nice pace, you could make a superstar out of him yet.
