Strikers are a crucial component of any team, whether you're playing HUT, Ultimate Team, or FIFA 23 Career mode. Because even if you have the best defenders and midfielders, you still need the offensive firepower to put them in the back of the net. That's why we've compiled this list of the best Strikers in FIFA 23. So, if you need to boost your goal-scoring potential, these are the best players for the job.
6. Lautaro Martínez
Kicking things off, we have the flourishing talent out of Inter in Italy, Lautaro Martinez. The striker starts off with an overall rating of 86 with the potential of 89 in Career Mode. Set with a 4-star skill rating, Martinez highlights are his relentless aggression, volleys, and outside foot shot. So, not only is he a lethal threat that will attack the goal, but he'll also help set up more opportunities for everyone else on the pitch too.
He may not be one of the top five strikers in FIFA 23, but he's still an easy top 10 pick and is amongst the best strikers in FIFA 23. So, if you have the opportunity to add Martinez to your team, we strongly advise you to do so since this is one striker you don't want to miss out on.
5. Erling Haaland
Speaking of flourishing talent, especially youthful, we highly doubt Erling Haaland needs any introduction. The rookie striker debuting out of Manchester City is already one of the best strikers in FIFA 23 with a starting rating of 89 with the potential to climb to 94. Haaland, on the other hand, only has a 3-star skill rating. However, that's because skill maneuvers and juking out opponents aren't the focus of Haalands' game.
If you manage to snag this striker, you'll want to give him as many scoring opportunities as possible. The reason for this is that Haaland has a 94 Shot Power and Finishing grade. As a result, this striker's highlight is his cannon of a leg. Give him a chance in the slot, and he won't waste time finding the back of the net.
4. Harry Kane
An absolute legend of the sport and another guy who needs no introduction is Tottenham Hotspurs striker Harry Kane. Hard set at 89 for his rating, Kane is a veteran with over 10 years of experience playing against the league's best. All around, Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in FIFA 23 and someone that will improve your entire front end.
That's because, as a veteran, Kane is an excellent leader with one of the greatest Football IQs in the game. As a result, he'll help raise everyone's level of play on the offensive side of the ball. So, if you're looking to get more goal-scoring opportunities, Harry Kane is one striker that will undoubtedly make that happen.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo
Unfortunately, a face we will not be seeing in at least the next couple of iterations of the FIFA game is Cristiano Ronaldo. The reason being, Ronaldo sold his soul to go play in Dubai. As a result, it's your last chance to get to play as or alongside one of the best strikers known to play the game.
Although he may not be putting up the ratings he once did in former FIFA games, that doesn't detract from the fact the Ronaldo is one of the best strikers you can land for your team. Without a doubt, he has the best overall ratings across the board and is able to do a bit of everything, even make those highlight-reel plays every now and again.
2. Robert Lewandowski
Despite being 34 years old, Robert Lewandowski is still competing with the league's newest and youngest talent. The FC Barcelona striker has astounded fans with his scoring abilities, from Heading and Shot Power to Finishing and Penalties. His biggest traits lie in his finesse, outside foot shot, and distance shooting. As a result, Lewandowski is the player you want on the field at crunch time.
One of the highest rated strikers in FIFA 23, Lewandowski sits at a 91 rating in Career Mode and has an impressive 4-star skill rating. Just don't expect him to be knocking the ball off some of the game's younger and more fit strikers, since his physical attributes are his only weakness. Still, that's not stopping him from putting the ball in the back of the net, as Lewandowski always seems to find a way to make it happen.
1. Kylian Mbappé
To no one's surprise, the French talent Kylian Mbappe is ranked first among the best strikers in FIFA 23. Not only is Mbappe the best striker in the game, but he is also the fastest striker, with the highest sprint speed. Send Mbappe down the stretch, and you can bet he'll beat his opponents to the ball. Then it's just a matter of putting a nicely placed shot on goal.
Unfortunately, Mbappe's drawback is that his shooting stats aren't as outstanding as the other strikers on this list. That being said, he still has an impressive Finishing rating of 93. So, while the goals may not all be pretty, they'll still find their way to the back of the net. As a result, when it comes to individual performance and production, Mbappe is one player who is great at getting the job done himself.
