Readers should note that the prices listed below are based on the first season of your Career Mode. So, the values may differ if you enter your second year or further in the game.

Furthermore, despite the value listed, the club you are negotiating with could ask for more or accept less money in each different save. It is always wise to offer a little more than their expected value.

1. Kylian Mbappé

Kylian Mbappé is the joint highest-rated player in the game, so it should be no surprise to see him on this list. The Frenchman will start the first season of your Career Mode as a 24-year-old who can reach a potential of 94 OVR.

However, you will likely have to pay nearly a world record fee to land the PSG forward. After all, he is one of the best players in the sport.

  • Age: 24
  • Expected Price: $192M / €181.5M / £157M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $243K / €230K / £199K
  • Overall: 91
  • Potential: 94

2. Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland is possibly the best striker in real life, and in EA FC 24 career mode, he is certainly up there. The Norwegian joins Mbappé in having a 94 OVR potential.

Haaland is two years younger than his French counterpart, so if you aren’t looking to ever sell your No.9, you will likely get more seasons out of the Man City forward. Although, he will cost more.

  • Age: 22
  • Expected Price: $195M / €185M / £160M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $360K / €340K / £294K
  • Overall: 91
  • Potential: 94

3. Victor Osimhen

The Napoli striker is another excellent option to lead your frontline. With a potential of 91 OVR, the Nigerian can become one of the best in the world.

The price won’t come cheap as you will have to offer up quite a lot of money to secure his services.

  • Age: 24
  • Expected Price: $134M / €126.5M / £110M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $127K / €120K / £103K
  • Overall: 88
  • Potential: 91

4. Darwin Nuñez

The Uruguayan has a value much lower than the other options, making him a perfect choice for clubs operating on a mid-tier budget in EA FC 24 Career Mode.

The Liverpool forward is 82 OVR and can reach an 88 OVR, making him one of the best players to pick up for the present and future.

  • Age: 24
  • Expected Price: $51M / €48.5M / £42M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $127K / €120K / £103K
  • Overall: 82
  • Potential: 88

5. Youssoufa Moukoko

Moukoko is one of Career Mode’s most exciting pick-ups, especially for those mid-table sides hoping to climb further up the table.

Starting as a 77 OVR, the German can get a +10 to become 87 OVR. Additionally, he will come in cheaper than most options.

  • Age: 18
  • Expected Price: $24M / €22.5M / £19.5M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $19K / €18K / £15.5K
  • Overall: 77
  • Potential: 87

6. Rafael Leão

Although technically an LW, the Portuguese international does have ST as an alternate position, making him eligible for this list.

The AC Milan player will cost quite a lot of money, so make sure you have the correct budget before attempting to acquire his signature.

  • Age: 24
  • Expected Price: $108.5M / €102.5M / £89M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $116K / €110K / £95K
  • Overall: 86
  • Potential: 91

7. Rasmus Højlund

The Manchester United striker has one of the most significant potential growths in the game. The Dane will start as a 76 OVR player who can go to an 89 OVR.

However, Højlund is in his first season at Manchester United, so Career Mode players must wait a season before trying to snap him up.

  • Age: 20
  • Expected Price: $M / €M / £M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $K / €K / £K
  • Overall: 76
  • Potential: 89

8. Elye Wahi

Wahi is an excellent signing for those with a mid-table or newly promoted side. The Frenchman may only start as a 78 OVR, but he can reach 88 OVR, making him one of the best in the world.

  • Age: 20
  • Expected Price: $33M / €31M / £27M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $32.3K / €30.5K / £26.5K

9. Nelson Weiper

Weiper is the ultimate budget striker option, as he can go from 66 OVR up to 86 OVR. This +20 increase makes him the perfect attacker to sign as you go from the lower leagues up to the top divisions.

Of course, he will also come in as the cheapest player on this list.

  • Age: 20
  • Expected Price: $2.5M / €2.4M / £2M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $3.5K / €3.3K / £2.85K
  • Overall: 66
  • Potential: 86

10. Mathys Tel

Mathys Tel is an exciting talent in real life, and this carries over to EA FC 24 Career Mode. It might be tough to convince him to move away from German champions Bayern Munich, but if you do, you’ll secure an excellent prospect.

According to the database, Tel’s value surprisingly comes at an affordable price compared to most on this list. He can move from a 72 OVR up to an 88 OVR player.

  • Age: 18
  • Expected Price: $6.5M / €6M / £5.2M
  • Expected Wage (per week): $16K / €15K / £13K
  • Overall: 72
  • Potential: 88
