Whether you’re looking for an RM, LM, RW or LW to bolster your FIFA 22 Career Mode squad, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. There are loads of right-wingers and left-wingers who could do a fine job in your midfield, but who are the very best of the bunch? And who is the fastest winger in the game?

We’ve also got guides about the best young players and the best cheap players in FIFA 22. But if you’re willing to spend the big bucks on the very best wingers around, keep on reading for all the key details. We’ve crunched all the numbers for you, and you can read the results below!

Who are the fastest wingers in FIFA 22 Career Mode?

Before we get into the overall ratings, it’s worth taking a moment to talk about the fastest wingers in FIFA 22 Career Mode. After all, a high pace stat is arguably the most important trait you need from a player if you’re wanting them to bomb it down flanks for you.

We’ve pulled together a little list of players that have really high pace stats, even though their overall rating might stop them from appearing in any ‘best of’ lists. If it’s pure pace that you’re after, these are some very speedy wingers that would do a fine job for your Career Mode team:

  • Adama Traore – RW, pace 96, overall 78, potential 81, age 25, price £16.5 million
  • Vinicius Jr – LW, pace 95, overall 80, potential 90, age 21, price £52 million
  • Frank Acheampong – LW, pace 94, overall 77, potential 77, age 27, price £10 million
  • Ismaila Sarr – RW, pace 94, overall 78, potential 86, age 23, price £28 million
  • Moussa Diaby – LW, pace 94, overall 81, potential 88, age 22, price £47 million

We’d also recommend the 19-year-old Jeremy Doku, who has a pace rating of 92 and an overall rating of 77. His potential rating is 87, and his valuation at the start of the game is £20.5 million. A very tidy investment.
