Jadon Sancho (87 OVR – 93 POT)
Team: Borussia Dortmund
Best Position: LW, LM, LAM, CAM, RAM, RM, RW
Overall/Potential: 87 OVR / 93 POT
Value: £111.5 million
Wage: £73,000 per week
Best Attributes: 92 Dribbling, 91 Agility, 91 Ball Control
Jadon Sancho is one of the most highly-regarded young talents in world football right now. Still only 20-years-old, he burst onto the scene at 17-years-old through the trust placed in him by Borussia Dortmund.
The English winger enjoyed the best season of his young career so far in 2019/20, scoring 20 goals and setting up 20 more in 44 appearances. He’s started this season hot, too, scoring a goal and two assists in three games.
Sancho is already a tremendous player to have in your Career Mode team, carrying an 87 OVR, five-star skill moves, and a high attacking work rate. Sancho is the best young RW/RM in FIFA 21.
Yet to reach his potential rating of 93 POT, the London-lad’s 91 agility, 91 ball control, 92 dribbling, 81 finishing, and 81 sprint speed will only improve in the seasons to come.
Achraf Hakimi (83 OVR – 88 POT)
Team: Inter Milan
Best Position: LM, LWB, RWB, RM
Overall/Potential: 83 OVR / 88 POT
Value: £50 million
Wage: £83,000 per week
Best Attributes: 95 Sprint Speed, 93 Acceleration, 86 Stamina
To say that Achraf Hakimi has a high club association would be an understatement; still only 21-years-old, the Spanish-Moroccan has played for Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, and Inter Milan.
Hakimi came through the Real Madrid ranks, having been born in the Spanish capital, as a promising, forward-thinking right back. Now, his attacking flair is being utilised higher up the pitch, with both of his two appearances for Inter Milan this season coming at right midfield, yielding a goal and two assists already.
Not only is Hakimi one of the best young RMs in FIFA 21, but he’s also one of the fastest young players in the game, boasting 93 acceleration, 95 sprint speed, and 77 agility.
Luckily, the young right midfielder isn’t just a speedster, with his 84 dribbling, 81 crossing, 81 short passing, and 73 finishing making him a useful player to have on the ball.
Ferran Torres (81 OVR – 89 POT)
Team: Manchester City
Best Position: LW, LM, LAM, CAM, RAM, RM, RW
Overall/Potential: 81 OVR / 89 POT
Value: £51 million
Wage: £87,000 per week
Best Attributes: 88 Acceleration, 86 Vision, 82 Dribbling
Starting all over the field for Valencia CF last season, but predominantly on the right wing, a 19/20-year-old Ferran Torres caught the eye of Europe’s elite with his two goals and two assists in six Champions League games.
Usually, a top attacking Spanish talent who starts most of their 44 games to score six goals and eight assists commands quite a hefty fee, but Manchester City managed to snag Torres for a mere £20.7 million initial fee.
Recognised as a naturally gifted winger in FIFA 21, Torres’ four-star weak foot, four-star skill moves, 88 acceleration, and 77 sprint speed will have him winning over several users very quickly.
However, the Foios-native’s best ratings concern what’s to come. Already one of the best young RMs in Career Mode, with an overall rating of 81, Torres is set to become one of the best in the world thanks to his 89 POT.
Raphinha (81 OVR – 85 POT)
Team: Stade Rennais
Best Position: LW, LM, RM, RW
Overall/Potential: 81 OVR / 85 POT
Value: £33.5 million
Wage: £45,500 per week
Best Attributes: 91 Acceleration, 91 Sprint Speed, 86 Agility
Having secured a £20.7 million move from Sporting CP to Stade Rennais last summer, Raphinha didn’t waste any time in showcasing his ability.
In what was a remarkable all-around season for the club, climbing to third – Les Rennais’ highest-ever Ligue 1 standing – to seal a Champions League place, the young Brazilian shone on the right side, ending the shortened season with nine goals and five assists through 35 games.
The Porto Alegre-born winger certainly caught the eye of the FIFA 21 ratings team, being given an 81 OVR and an 85 POT.
Already ranking as one of the best young right wingers in Career Mode, Raphinha boasts many high ratings in key areas of FIFA’s gameplay mechanics, including his 91 acceleration, 84 dribbling, 91 sprint speed, 86 agility, and 83 stamina.
Viktor Tsygankov (80 OVR – 86 POT)
Team: Dynamo Kyiv
Best Position: LM, LAM, CAM, RAM, RM
Overall/Potential: 80 OVR / 86 POT
Value: £30.5 million
Wage: £22,000 per week
Best Attributes: 85 Sprint Speed, 84 Acceleration, 82 Agility
Born in Israel, developed by Dynamo Kyiv, Viktor Tsygankov has been a recognised wonderkid within the Ukrainian Premier Liga for a couple of years now, with him earning ‘Player of the Month’ honours on three occasions in the 2018/19 season.
Tsygankov’s domestic performances have also caught the eye of the national team, with the crafty winger having already notched 21 caps, three goals, and two assists for Ukraine.
With three goals in six games for Dynamo Kyiv this season, Tsygankov continues to validate his acclaim, with FIFA 21 showing his ability through an 80 OVR and 86 POT to make him one of the best young right-sided midfielders in Career Mode.
The Champions League-bound Ukrainian sports many favourable attribute ratings, making him a sound purchase from the start of a Career Mode. These include his four-star weak foot, four-star skill moves, 81 ball control, 80 dribbling, 80 vision, and 77 crossing.
