7 Midfielders To Sign Under 15k Coins In FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
Good defensive midfielders can either make or break your team in FIFA 22 – and since the majority of elite midfielders are quite expensive, we’ve put together a comprehensive list featuring seven OP midfielders who cost less than 15k – so without further ado, let’s dive into it.
Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)
Wijnaldum’s recent move to PSG created a slew of new opportunities for FUT players to build hybrid Ligue 1 squads.
The former Liverpool man boasts a high defensive work rate as well as a high attacking work rate; which allows him to move across the pitch like a box-to-box midfielder.
He boasts 87 pace and 87 defending with a shadow chemistry style. He also possesses 84 agility, 88 balance and 88 composure, all of which allow him to effortlessly glide across the pitch with the ball at his feet
Fabinho is a tank. Plain and simple.
He’s ridiculously difficult to shove off the ball thanks to his huge 6’2 frame as well as his all-round physicality.
A shadow chemistry style would grant Fabinho 77 pace and 94 defending – which further accentuates his physicality which is rated 83.
Emre Can (CM)
Emre Can is one of the most overpowered midfielders in FIFA 22 – but he’s also one of the most underused – due to the fact he plies his trade in the Bundesliga and not the Premier League.
If Can was a Premier League player, he’d probably cost around 20k coins, but seeing as he costs just 3,500 – you’ do well to add him to your squad.
Standing at 6’1 Can is an absolute powerhouse in midfield. He boasts 87 jumping, 86 strength and 88 aggression – in short, Can is an expert at winning physical duels.
Nicolo Barella is one of the most highly-rated midfielders in the Serie A in both real life and in Ultimate Team.
He’s essentially the Italian Kante.
He boasts 91 agility, 90 balance, 85 composure all of which allow him to retain the ball and dribble past players in the middle of the park.
Beyond his dribbling, Barella is also effective at thwarting incoming attacks, thanks to his pace and defending stats – which are rated 88 and 83 respectively (with a shadow chemistry style).
Denis Zakaria (CDM)
Denis Zakaria is the Premier League’s resident brick wall.
At 6’3, he’s one of the tallest midfielders in the game – allowing him to consistently win aerial duels without breaking a sweat.
In addition to his huge frame, Zakaria boasts 93 pace and 88 defending, making him a nightmare for forwards to come up against.
Costing just 950 coins, he offers a huge bang for your buck. So if you’re on the lookout for a cheap central midfielder who can help provide your team with some defensive cover – then look no further than Zakaria.
Rodrigo lacks pace – but what he lacks in pace, he makes up for in other areas.
For instance, the Manchester City man is 6’3 with 82 strength and 87 stamina, which allows him to play the full 90 minutes of a virtual match without breaking a sweat.
He’s also great at distributing the ball thanks to his short and long passing stats which are rated 85 and 83 respectively.
And if you’d like to boost his pace, you can use a shadow chemistry style to grant him 71 pace, which is a big improvement from his original pace rating of 61.
Franck Kessie earned himself a decent upgrade in FIFA 22 following his sublime performances for AC Milan last season – and that upgrade has transformed him into one of the best cheap midfielders in FIFA 22.
He boasts 88 pace and 91 defending with a shadow chemistry style – and he also possesses 86 strength, which allows him to outright bully his opponents on the virtual pitch.
He’s a true force to be reckoned with in the middle of the park – and trust us when we say that you’d much rather want him in your team than playing against your team,
