Choosing FIFA 22 Career Mode’s best cheap left wingers (LW & LM) with high potential
In this article, we’re looking at the best cheap up-and-coming options in the left wing position, and feature players like Octavian Popescu, Stipe Biuk, and Talles Magno.
The players have been chosen due to their high potential, the fact that they are 22 years younger, and they have a value of under £5 million.
At the bottom of the article, you’ll find a full list of all of the best cheap left wingers (LW and LM) with high potential ratings in FIFA 22.
Stipe Biuk (68 OVR – 85 POT)
Team: Hajduk Split
Value: £2.7 million
Best Attributes: 82 Sprint Speed, 72 Acceleration, 70 Vision
Stipe Biuk has a 68 rating with an 85 potential rating, and his 82 sprint speed and 72 acceleration are his best stats in the early stages of his career. His 70 dribbling and 68 ball control will rise with his overall rating, each reaching an 85 rating when maxed out.
The Croatian played nine times for club Hajduk Split last season, scoring three goals and assisting three more. This season, Biuk will be hoping for more minutes to build from that tally. Biuk is yet to make his international debut for Croatia.
Octavian Popescu (70 OVR – 85 POT)
Team: FCSB (Steaua)
Value: £3.2 million
Best Attributes: 85 Agility, 82 Acceleration, 82 Sprint Speed
Still just 18 years old, Octavian Popescu has a 70 overall rating with an 85 potential rating. The movement of Popescu is a great foundation for a young winger, with his 85 agility, 82 acceleration, 82 sprint speed, and 80 balance allowing him to weave in and out, creating space. With 75 ball control and 75 dribbling, he looks to be a great wide option going forward.
The Romanian played almost a full campaign last season, creating seven assists in 24 games. This season he has started well, scoring three goals in the first nine games, and he will be hoping his improvement will result in an international cap sooner rather than later.
Talles Magno (67 OVR – 85 POT)
Team: New York City FC
Value: £2.2 million
Best Attributes: 87 Acceleration, 84 Sprint Speed, 78 Agility
Talles Magno is a talented young Brazilian, boasting a 67 overall rating with a potential rating of 85. Speed is Magno’s best asset on FIFA 22. His 87 acceleration and 84 sprint speed stats make him lethal up and down the flank, while his 78 agility, 78 dribbling, 76 composure, and 75 ball control allow him to take the ball past defenders and stay calm delivering that final ball.
Magno moved from first tier football in Brazil to join New York City FC this summer. Since joining New York, the 19-year-old has played only sporadic minutes, but has opened his goal-scoring account in a 3-3 draw with FC Dallas.
Morgan Rogers (66 OVR – 84 POT)
Value: £1.9 million
Best Attributes: 83 Sprint Speed, 76 Acceleration, 74 Strength
Morgan Rogers has a 67 overall rating with an 85 potential rating. Standing at 6’2”, the combination of 83 sprint speed, 76 acceleration, and 74 strength make the Englishman a powerful player on FIFA 22. His 65 finishing means that he has the potential to play as a striker, and may benefit from a position change if you wanted to explore it.
Rogers is currently on loan at Bournemouth from Manchester City. Since joining the Cherries, he has featured in most games and has played on both wings, although he is yet score for his new club.
Jayden Braaf (64 OVR – 84 POT)
Team: Manchester City
Value: £1.4 million
Best Attributes: 86 Balance, 84 Sprint Speed, 82 Acceleration

The movement of the man from Amsterdam is impressive considering his age, and his 86 balance, 84 sprint speed, 82 acceleration, and 82 agility makes him difficult for defenders to stay with. His 63 dribbling and 63 ball control may be something to work on going forward.
The 18-year-old spent time in PSV Eindhoven and Ajax’s youth systems before joining Manchester City’s youth team. Last season, Braaf played for Udinese in Serie A and scored one goal in four games. He is currently in Manchester City’s under-23 squad.
Franco Orozco (65 OVR – 84 POT)
Team: Club Atlético Lanús
Value: £1.5 million

The Argentine is not the tallest player standing at just 5’6”, but his movement and low centre of gravity make him difficult to stop. With 80 sprint speed, 78 acceleration, 78 agility, and 73 dribbling, he has the ability to take the ball past defenders with ease.
Orozco has played 13 times in the first tier of football in Argentine Primera División, and in that time he’s scored two goals and created two assists. He is yet to make his debut for the Argentinian national team.
