The Fastest Strikers in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
Over the last couple of years, the meta on FIFA has been strictly dictated by pace. If your team lacks pace, be it in defense or attack, your chances of success will suffer tremendously. This is why most of the meta players in FIFA 22 have pace – a lot of it.
After covering the fastest center backs in FIFA 22, it’s only fair that we take a look at the fastest strikers in FIFA 22. Just imagine the team you could have when you have pace throughout your team. You’ll score more goals than you’ve ever scored and you’ll concede fewer goals than you’ve ever conceded.
In this article, you’ll find the three fastest strikers in the Premier League, La Liga Santander, the Bundesliga, Serie A, and Ligue 1 followed by the three fastest players from around the world. In the end, I’ll also show you the top 10 fastest strikers on Ultimate Team in FIFA 22.
Hopefully, with all this information, your squad recruitment process will be a much easier and straightforward process.
Fastest Strikers in the Premier League
If you’re looking to build a Premier League squad on Ultimate Team in FIFA 22, I’d strongly suggest you get one of the following three players. You won’t regret it.
Patson Daka – 77 – Leicester City
The Zambia national Patson Daka is the fastest striker in the Premier League. His FIFA 22 card boasts the staggering 93 pace. The great thing about the 1998-born Leicester player is that he’s super affordable on FIFA 22. You’ll be able to practically afford him right off the bat.
Aside from his incredible speed, Patson Daka also has 78 shooting, 59 passing, 76 dribbling, 24 defending, and 71 physical. Those are some very decent stats for a striker. He’s tough, fast, and cheap. There is no reason why you shouldn’t have him on your Premier League squad.
Timo Werner – 84 – Chelsea
The 2nd fastest striker in the Premier League is Chelsea’s Timo Werner. The German striker’s FIFA 22 card has 91 pace, which is way faster than 99% of the Premier League players – great news for those of you who can afford Timo as he’s not the cheapest of players.
Besides his impressive pace, the 84 overall rating of Timo Werner is also thanks to his 81 shooting, 70 passing, 82 dribbling, 35 defending, and 70 physical. In other words, he’s got everything you could ask from a striker to tear through the opponent’s defense – pace, shooting, and dribbling.
Adam Armstrong – 76 – Southampton
The 1997-born Adam Armstrong is the third-fastest Premier League striker with a total pace of 90. Though he’s rated 76 and is a non-rare card on FIFA 22, his stats are absolutely insane for the price that he goes for. Aside from his 90 pace, the Southampton striker also boasts 77 shooting, 66 passing, 76 dribbling, 35 defending, and 71 physical.
Some would even say that, at least on FIFA 22, he’s on par with Timo Werner as their stats aren’t dramatically different. One downside to Adam is that his height is only at 172cm/5’8″, meaning that he won’t be anywhere near as useful in the box for set-pieces like Arsenal’s Aubameyang or Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Fastest Strikers in La Liga Santander
The Spanish league is renowned for having some of the fastest strikers in the world. Here is a breakdown of the three fastest strikers in the Spanish La Liga.
Inaki Williams Arthuer – 81 – Athletic Club
The fastest striker in the Spanish La Liga is Inaki Williams. The Spanish national’s FIFA 22 card boasts 94 pace. What’s absolutely insane is that no other strikers come even close to the Athletic Club’s legend.
As for his other stats, the 1994-born has 79 shooting, 72 passing, 78 dribbling, 37 defending, and 81 physical. These stats make him one of the most complete strikers that I’ve personally seen on FIFA 22. Combining those stats with his height of 6’1″/186cm, Inaki Williams really is a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to build a Spanish/La Liga squad.
Taking all of these stats into consideration, you’d think that he would cost you a bank. You’re wrong. He’s one of the more affordable attacking players in the entirety of FIFA 22. Go get him.
Jose Luis Morales – 81 – Levante UD
In second place as far as pace is concerned, we have the Spanish national Jose Luis Morales. The 81-rated Levante striker has 86 pace, 82 shooting, 75 passing, 85 dribbling, 52 defending, and 68 physical. These stats alone make Jose one of the most complete strikers in La Liga – definitely a worthwhile investment.
Aside from his awesome stats, the 1987-born player also has a 4-star skill foot and a 4-star weak foot. He’s also amongst the more affordable quick strikers in La Liga Santander.
Luis Javier Suarez – 77 – Granada CF
The 77-rated Luis Javier Suarez boasts 86 pace, making him as quick as the second player on our list, Jose Luis Morales who we talked about previously. Aside from his pace, the Granada CF striker also has 78 shooting, 65 passing, 74 dribbling, 40 defending, and 79 physical.
Luis is also the cheapest quick striker amongst the lot. What’s also worth mentioning is that he only has a 3-star skill foot and a 4-star weak foot, which isn’t the best, but if pace is all you’re after, rest assured that he can provide you with plenty.
Fasters Strikers in the Bundesliga
Planning on building a Bundesliga squad on Ultimate Team? Check out these incredibly quick strikers. They’re all worth every coin.
Donyell Malen – 80 – Borussia Dortmund
If you’re looking for the fastest striker in the Bundesliga, then you should go for Donyell Malen. The Dutch national has an overall FIFA 22 rating of 80, and the value of his card is only a couple of thousand coins.
As for pace, he boasts the staggering 90 pace, which is more than the large majority of players on FIFA 22 – meaning if you own this player, you’ll be the defender’s nightmare. Aside from his impressive pace, the Dortmund striker also has 79 shooting, 72 passing, 83 dribbling, 30 defending, and 74 physical.
Ihlas Bebou – 77 – TSG Hoffenheim
The Togo national, Ihlas Bebou actually has the exact same pace as Donyell Malen, putting both Bundesliga players on an equal playing field. Aside from his 90 pace, the TSG Hoffenheim player also has 75 shooting, 68 passing, 80 dribbling, 34 defending, and 64 physical.
Despite the fact that he’s currently the cheapest fast ST from the lot, he has the least physical attributes, which might mean that he’ll be quite easy to take down or put off balance when coming into contact with tougher opponents.
On the plus side, he has a 4-star skill foot so once you know how to do bicycle kicks in FIFA 22, you can pull off some awesome skills and take advantage of complex striking opportunities.
Erling Haaland – 88 – Borussia Dortmund
The 3rd fastest striker in the Bundesliga is no one else but the rising star Erling Haaland. His FIFA 22 card boasts 89 pace, which is surprisingly one of the few ST cards that have over 80 pace in the Bundeliga.
As for the rest of the Norwegian’s stats, he has 91-shooting – the best by a long mile in the Bundesliga, only second to Lewandowski’s 92 shooting, 65 passing, 80 dribbling, 45 defending, and 88 physical.
From these stats, combined with his 6’4″/194cm in height, we have ourselves an extremely physical, tall, powerful, and rapid striker. It’s no wonder that he’s a little bit on the more expensive side. If you can afford him, he’ll transform your Bundesliga team forever.
Fastest Strikers in Serie A
Want to build a Serie A squad? Here are some of the strikers that you definitely don’t want to miss out on. Their FIFA 22 cards are truly game-changing.
Keita Balde – 76 – Cagliari
The Senegalese nation Keita Balde is the fastest striker in Serie A. His FIFA 22 card boasts 91 pace. Aside from the fairly impressive speed, the Cagliari player also has 74 shooting, 71 passing, 79 dribbling, 30 defending, and 70 physical.
On top of these pretty awesome stats, the 76-rated player also has a 4-star skill foot and 4-star weak foot. If you’ve played ultimate team for some time, you’ll definitely be able to afford him.
Luis Muriel – 82 – Atalanta BC
Muriel is probably the most well-known striker in Serie A. He’s also one of the fastest, ranking in second place with 89 pace. Aside from his impressive sprinting abilities, his FIFA 22 card also has 83 shooting, 75 passing, 86 dribbling, 27 defending, and 67 physical, which makes him one of the most complete strikers in Serie A.
In combination with his 4-star skill foot and 4-star weak foot, you can expect him to deliver a great level of performance. He does cost a little more than the other two Serie A strikers that you’ll see, but his shooting and dribbling are definitely on a whole different level, making the Colombian a worthwhile investment to your team.
Victor Osimhen – 80 – Napoli
Aside from his 88 pace, the Nigerian national Victor Osimhen also has 80 shooting, 63 passing, 75 dribbling, 39 defending, and 81 physical. The Napoli player also stands at 6’1″/185cm, and when you combine his pace and strength with his height, you’ve got a player that will be super hard to be displaced or put off balance. Apart from that, he’ll also be a great addition to your team when it comes to heading the ball in from corners and other set pieces.
Unlike the other two strikers, the 1998-born striker has a 3-star skill foot, meaning he won’t be able to execute skills such as the Rabona skill move and other more advanced skills. Despite that, his FIFA 22 card is still very affordable and pretty much anyone can make Victor part of their Serie A or Nigerian team.
Fastest Strikers in Ligue 1
Are you looking at building a Ligue 1 team in UT? Let’s take a look at some of the fastest strikers that you want to make part of your team right away – if you can afford them of course.
Kylian Mbappe – PSG – 91
If you’re building a French or a Paris Saint-Germain squad on Ultimate Team, one of the players you definitely want to have in your Ultimate Team is one of the youngest footballing superstars, Kylian Mbappe.
He’s the fastest ST and player in the whole of FIFA 22. There is no one faster than him – or anyone that even comes close for that matter. He has a total of 97 pace. In the second place, we have Spain’s Inaki Williams who’s FIFA 22 card boasts 94 pace.
Aside from the insane pace, the 1998-born Frenchman also has 88 shooting, 80 passing, 92 dribbling, 36 defending, and 77 physical. On top of that, he has a 5-star skill foot and a 4-star weak foot, making him by far the quickest and one of the most complete strikers in FIFA 22.
That of course comes at a premium price. If you have over a million coins, then you might be able to get your hands on him. If that’s something you can afford, you shouldn’t think about it twice.
Mama Samba Balde – 75 – Troyes
Unlike Kylian Mbappe, Mama Samba Balde is worth far less Frenchman. You shouldn’t have any problems with buying the Guinea-Bissau national for under 1,000 coins. Despite his low price, his 75-rated FIFA 22 card still boasts the staggering 91 pace.
Aside from that pretty impressive stat, the Troyes player also has 72 shooting, 67 passing, 73 dribbling, 50 defending, and 79 physical – making him a very decent striking force in anyone’s budget ultimate team.
Alberth Elis – 75 – Bordeaux
The Honduras national, Alberth Elis is another super quick striker in the Ligue 1. The Bordeaux player boasts a total of 90 pace, making him the 3rd fastest striker in the French league. Like Mama Samba Balde, he too costs practically nothing and virtually anyone can afford him.
Compared to the above-mentioned player, Alberth also boasts a 4-star skill foot and 4-star weak foot, which is 1-star more than Mama Samba for basically the same price.
Aside from his technical abilities and above-average pace, the 1996-born also has 71 shooting, 63 passing, 77 dribbling, 31 defending, and 74 physical. he’s also taller than both above-mentioned players, making him a great choice for attempting headers from crosses and set pieces like corners and free kicks.
Other Fast Strikers
Below, you’ll find three of the fastest strikers from around the world that we didn’t previously mention above.
Fabian Castillo – 75 – FC Juuarez
With 92 pace, the Colombian Fabian Castillo ranks 4th on the list of the fastest strikers on FIFA 22. One of the downsides is that he plays for the Mexican BBVA MX (Mexico’s First Division), meaning that unless you’re building a LIGA BBVA MX or a Colombian squad, you won’t find much use of him – which is also the reason for his low cost. In the top 5 fastest strikers of FIFA 22, he’s the cheapest by a long mile.
Besides his pace, the 75-rated striker also boats 75 shooting, 63 passing, 81 dribbling, 43 defending, and 73 physical. All of these are very decent stats for such an inexpensive player. He would definitely be worth a lot of coins if he played in one of the major leagues.
Ryan Kent – 76 – Rangers
The Englishman Ryan Kent is not only another fast striker in FIFA 22 but he’s also the cheapest – literally. You’ll find it difficult to find anyone cheaper than the 76-rated non-rare Englishman.
His FIFA 22 card boasts the staggering 91 pace, which makes him the 7th fastest striker on FIFA 22, only behind players like Kylian Mbappe, Timo Werner, and some other huge names in the sporting world.
Aside from his incredible pace, Ryan has 72 shooting, 70 passing, 79 dribbling, 30 defending, and 62 physical. He doesn’t have the most impressive stats ever – apart from his pace, but he’s got enough strength and shooting power to become the lead striker in your team.
Do note that he’ll only be a useful addition to your team if you’re building an English or Scottish Premier League squad.
Emmanuel Boateng – 76 – Dalian Pro
If you’re looking to build a team in the Chinese Super League, then Emmanuel Boateng is the striker for your team. His FIFA 22 card boasts 91 pace, which easily ranks the 76-rated Ghana player within the top 10 fastest players on FIFA 22.
Besides his very impressive speed, the 1996-born also has 74 shooting, 58 passing, 75 dribbling, 40 defending, and 77 physical. Despite the fact that he’s quite short for a striker (5’9″/175cm), his FIFA 22 card is super affordable, making him a no-brainer option for your team.
