It’s not uncommon for a team to turn to an energetic young player to add some flair to the right wing, which has allowed many of the best young right wingers to emerge as world-class talents early in their careers.
In FIFA 22, speed is still the most potent factor on the virtual field, which is why many gamers seek to add young, super-fast wingers to their right flank, be it in the RM or RW role.
Here, we’re going through all of the best young right wingers for you to shortlist in Career Mode.
Choosing FIFA 22 Career Mode’s best young right wingers (RW & RM)
Given that Leon Bailey, Ferran Torres, and Jadon Sancho all feature among the best young RWs and RMs in FIFA 22, it’s fair to say that there’s a lot of talent to go around.
To home-in on the very best young right wingers in Career Mode, we’ve sorted all players with RW or RM as their best position by their overall rating, and then cut out any players over the age of 23.
At the bottom of the article, you’ll find the full list of all of the best young right wingers (RW and RM) in FIFA 22.
Jadon Sancho (87 OVR – 91 POT)
Team: Manchester United
Value: £100 million
Best Attributes: 92 Dribbling, 91 Agility, 90 Ball Control
Having secured a big-money move to Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund, Jadon Sancho has also earned himself the top spot as the best young RM in FIFA 22.
The Englishman’s 87 overall rating is staggering at the age of 21, as are many of his best attribute ratings. Already, Sancho boasts 92 dribbling, 91 agility, 90 ball control, 87 short pass, 83 finishing, and 95 acceleration.
According to the press, the Red Devils have been trying to lure the former Manchester City trainee back to the Premier League for years, finally landing the move this summer. Expectations are very high due to Sancho’s 50 goals and 64 assists in four seasons in Germany.
Ferran Torres (82 OVR – 90 POT)
Team: Manchester City
Value: £59 million
Best Attributes: 88 Acceleration, 84 Attack Positioning, 84 Vision
With a positional bias of right wing rather than Sancho’s right-mid, Ferran Torres’ 82 overall rating sets him as the best young RW to sign in Career Mode – and his 90 potential is rather good, too.
Torres’ talent allows him to be an incredibly versatile forward, with FIFA 22 designating him as a right winger, but his attribute ratings allowing him to play across the front. Wherever he is, the Spaniard’s 88 acceleration, 84 dribbling, 84 positioning, 81 finishing, and 74 volleys make him a threat.
This season, the 21-year-old was being trusted by Pep Guardiola to lead the line following a summer that saw Sergio Agüero depart and Harry Kane get chained down in North London. While his first four Premier League games this season only yielded two goals and an assist – all against Arsenal – he’s proven to have an eye for goal in the past.
Leon Bailey (82 OVR – 85 POT)
Team: Aston Villa
Value: £36 million
Best Attributes: 93 Acceleration, 93 Sprint Speed, 86 Dribbling
Jamaican speedster Leon Bailey has been amongst the hottest talents in world football for a few years, and now, with an 82 overall rating, he comes into FIFA 22 as one of the best young RM players to sign.
With plenty of room to develop further, thanks to his 85 potential rating, Bailey is already a menace down the flank at 23-years-old. His 93 acceleration, 93 sprint speed, 86 agility, and 86 dribbling make the left-footer unstoppable when driving into open space.
The Kingston-born winger has enjoyed a unique career path. Starting in Jamaica’s Phoenix All Stars Football Academy, Bailey then moved to the youth system of USK Anif in Austria, and then to the under-19s of Slovakian side AS Trencin. Still, it was the 2015 move to KRC Genk that allowed him to emerge as a wonderkid, which encouraged Bayer 04 Leverkusen to sign him, and then Aston Villa for £28 million over the summer.
Pedro Gonçalves (82 OVR – 88 POT)
Team: Sporting CP
Value: £41.5 million
Best Attributes: 87 Balance, 86 Composure, 85 Stamina
Pedro Gonçalves’ 88 potential rating may have him come a fair few points short of the Cristiano Ronaldo standard, but the Portuguese right winger’s 81 overall already puts him among the best young RWs in FIFA 22.
With 84 attack positioning, 84 ball control, four-star skill moves, 86 composure, 84 reactions, 84 finishing, and 81 shot power, Gonçalves is that exact kind of winger that you want to have the ball by the corner of the box before cutting in to test defenders and the goalie.
In his time with Wolverhampton Wanderers and FC Famalicão after shifting to England from the CF Valencia youth set-up in 2017, it’s fair to say that Gonçalves struggled to showcase his true potential. In 2019/20, he mostly played as a centre-mid for Famalicão, but Sporting CP recognised his innate scoring ability and skill on the ball, signed him for £6 million, pushed him to the right wing, and then he scored 23 goals last season.
Dejan Kulusevski (81 OVR – 89 POT)
Team: Piemonte Calcio
Value: £50 million
Best Attributes: 87 Ball Control, 86 Stamina, 85 Acceleration
Not only is the Swede among the best right wing wonderkids to sign in Career Mode, but Dejan Kulusevski also has a strong enough overall rating (81 OVR) to rank among the very best young players to play in the position.
The left-footer with a four-star weak foot rating is built to be a speedy workhorse down the flank, boasting 86 stamina, 85 acceleration, 83 sprint speed, 80 reactions, and 77 strength. Better still, all of Kulusevski’s key attributes will continue to grow as he develops towards his mighty 89 potential rating.
A regular feature for Juventus (Piemonte Calcio in FIFA 22), the Stockholm-native cut his teeth with Parma Calcio and Atalanta’s Primavera side. Last season, he was deployed all over the field, including at right wing, attacking midfield, centre forward, and on the left, which yielded seven goals and seven assists in 47 matches.
Bukayo Saka (80 OVR – 88 POT)
Value: £39 million
Best Attributes: 86 Acceleration, 84 Dribbling, 83 Agility
Adding to the nearly never-ending stack of emerging English talents listed as RM or RW on FIFA 22, Bukayo Saka’s 80 overall rating puts him with the very best right wingers in Career Mode despite being only 19-years-old.
A superbly versatile player who’s happy to play down either flank from the full-back position up to the wing, Saka’s in-game ratings reflect his well-roundedness. The Londoner’s 84 dribbling, 82 sprint speed, and 86 acceleration are, naturally, the highlights, but his 69 standing tackle, 69 finishing, 68 shot power, and 79 crossing also become increasingly useful as he grows towards his 88 potential rating.
Saka’s already become a core member of the Arsenal squad, scoring 13 goals and teeing up 22 more by his 96th appearance. He’s also carried his knack for getting on the score sheet to the national team, with the young Gunner notching two goals and three assists in 11 caps.
Viktor Tsygankov (80 OVR – 86 POT)
Team: Dynamo Kyiv
Value: £28.5 million
Best Attributes: 85 Sprint Speed, 84 Acceleration, 82 Agility
Right midfielder Viktor Tsygankov makes it into the upper-tiers of this best young right wingers list by virtue of his 80 overall rating at 23-years-old – with the young player still able to grow into a decent 86 potential rating.
Speed is the primary asset of this left-footer in FIFA 22, with his 85 sprint speed, 82 agility, and 84 acceleration surpassing his overall rating. Having utilised those to run past defenders, Tsygankov can then tap into his 81 ball control, 80 dribbling, 77 crossing, 74 long shots, or 75 finishing to deliver an end product.
The Israeli-born Ukrainian has been a part of the Dynamo Kyiv system since a very young age, making his way up to the first-team in 2016. In that first full campaign, he scored five goals and six assists in 29 games. Last season, that tally increased to 15 goals and nine assists en route to him and Bilo-Syni winning the Ukrainian Cup, Super Cup, and the Premier Liga.
