Ryan GravenberchBayern munich7989
Eduardo CamavingaReal Madrid7989
GaviFC Barcelona7989
VitinhaParis Saint-Germain7989


Vitinha, Paris Saint-Germain’s summer signing, comes with loads of potential as a crafty midfield interior with good technical skills. With the potential to grow to an 89 overall, he should round some of his weaker athletic qualities and could become a solid number eight in your team.


Gavi has a massive reputation now after breaking out onto the scene last season with Barcelona and the Spanish national team. With a potential overall of 89, he has the chance to develop into an all-round midfield talent – especially with his dribbling, passing and tenacity

Eduardo Camavinga

Eduardo Camavinga’s excellently rounded skillset is reflected in FIFA 23, and with the potential to develop him into an 89 overall means that he can develop into one of the games most devastating two-way mids.

Ryan Gravenberch

FC Bayern München don’t just sign anyone; Ryan Gravenberch is a talented and skillful midfielder that thrives going forward. With the potential to develop into an 89 overall, he can become one of the games most devastating attacking number 8s.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent Alexander-Arnold is already good, but he can become even better. An absurd passer of the football, he can become even better while rounding a couple of other weaker parts of his skillset as he climbs to 90 overall.

Alessandro Bastoni

The best young defender in Italy at the moment, Alessandro Bastoni’s talents are reflected in the game with the potential to hit a 90 overall rating. Physically and defensively he is already strong, and if he can add a little bit more speed, dribbling and passing as he develops, there is a monster centre-back ready to be unleashed.

Sandro Tonali

Sandro Tonali had a breakout 2021/22 season with Milan, and profiles as an astonishingly well-rounded midfielder that is as comfortable going forward as he is shielding his defence. With six overall points to grow to hit a 90 rating, he is another one of the best options for a two-way midfield runner.

João Félix

João Félix has been making high potential player lists for so long now, and he is clearly on his way to the top, as evidenced by his 84 rating at the start of the game. With the potential to grow to a 90, he can be a devastating dribbler and goal-scorer that also has very strong passing and decent pace.

Rafael Leão

Rafael Leão dominated Serie A last season, and it was his unique athleticism that was his point of difference that the league’s defences could not handle. With an 84 rating and 90 overall potential, his absurd pace in the game can only get better, while he is still an effective dribbler and goalscorer in FIFA 23.

Jamal Musiala

Jamal Musiala might be a slightly less popular pick than other players on this list given his lack of pace in the game, but the German comes with some high level dribbling stats that will suit some players that enjoy that type of midfielder.

Ansu Fati

Sure to be one of the game’s most popular wingers given his speed and dribbling ability, the fact that Ansu Fati has 11 overall points to gain to take him to a 90-rated left-winger means that he can become one of the most devastating wide goal threats in the game.

Jude Bellingham

Jude Bellingham is becoming one of Europe’s most dominant midfielders at Dortmund, and it’s reflected in FIFA 23 with a high starting overall and enormous potential. Like Tonali, he has a wonderfully rounded skillset that will only develop more as he moves towards his 91 overall potential.

Dušan Vlahović

Dušan Vlahovic was the second top scorer in Serie A last season – that’s not an easy feat. And his strong performances mean he is one of the highest potential strikers in the game with a 91 overall potential. Max that out and his shooting ability will somehow be even better than it already is in the game.

Kai Havertz

If you are looking for a mobile, technically proficient CAM that brings a good goal threat, Kai Havertz is a great option. With a 91 potential overall, if you can add a bit more physicality to him as part of his development, he is a strong option.

Florian Wirtz

Interestingly, one of the Bundesliga’s most prolific goalscorers last season, Florian Wirtz, has been given surprisingly weak shooting stats. Nonetheless, with potential to develop into a 91 overall player, you can add some more shooting to his fantastic passing and dribbling skillset in FIFA 23.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Gianluigi Donnarumma has been around forever, and he’s still really good. A pure shot-stopper of the highest calibre, his overall potential of 92 makes him the standout option as the best young goalkeeper in FIFA 23.

Vinícius Jr.

Absurd pace and dribbling stats are going to make Vinícius Júnior a very popular option in FIFA 23, as is his potential to develop from an 86 into a 92 overall player. If you can focus on making him a slightly better shooter, he will be a devastating goal-scoring wide player.

Phil Foden

If more technical, better passing players are your thing, Phil Foden might be a better option on the left wing than Vinicius. With the same ability to develop into a 92 overall player, Foden is a very strong choice for certain play styles.


Pedri is going to be one of the finest midfielders of his generation, and while he may lack raw speed in this edition of FIFA, he certainly brings loads of technical quality and passing that will be truly impressive when you max him out at 93 overall.

Erling Haaland

What more can be said about Erling Haaland? He is a generational athletic talent that bullies defences and his speed and physical attributes reflect that. With the potential to grow to a 94 overall, he is a formidable choice to lead the line for your team.

Kylian Mbappé

Speed, dribbling, shooting. It’s the holy trinity of FIFA stats, and Kylian Mbappé is a master of all three. The fact that he can grow from a 91 overall up to a 95 is truly scary.

The highest potential player in FIFA 23 career mode is Kylian Mbappé, who can grow into a 95 overall player.
