Darwin Nunez (Liverpool)
Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez currently is one of the cheapest, but strongest forwards currently in Ultimate Team. He’s got absolutely bags of speed, which in this FIFA is key.
Yes the Uruguayan’s 3* skill moves and weak foot do not look that strong – however with 89 Pace and 82 Shooting you can definitely be lethal with this card, this is without adding chemistry styles!

Gerard Moreno RTTK (Villareal) ›
Considering that Moreno is all but guaranteed to get a plus 2 with his upgrades, this card is a bargain. He may not be the easiest to link, but he is a genuine bagsman for under 25,000 coins.

Clearly, this cards biggest strength is the shooting, however he has no poor stats. He isn’t too slow, especially once you put a chemistry style on him, his passing is decent, he can dribble, he has it all. He is also left footed, as well as having the finesse shot straight, and we all know how devastating that can be.
Lionel Messi (PSG)
Lionel Messi is one of the best players to of every played the game, recently even lifting the illusive World Cup. In FIFA 23 though he has never been cheaper, now siting at around 70,000 coins for a 91 rated player. The only problem with this card is he isn’t as quick as he used to be, and his work rates are Low/Low which isn’t ideal.
Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)
Surprisingly and probably one of the best ‘cheap’ cards to pick up at the moment is Marcus Rashford and is primarily due to his 5* Weak Foot, incredibly rare to see on a low rare gold card.
The Manchester United ace offers a ton of pace and sublime finishing skills. His 75 passing makes him good at link up play and well suited to players who push forward aggressively.
With this 5* weak foot however, this is what drives his price on the market – listed around 1,000 coins on the market at the time of writing.
However, he provides decent finishing, which can be amplified with chemistry styles, and enough pace on the pitch to keep ahead when pressing with the ball forward.
You can’t go wrong with any of these players to pick up which are definitely some of the cheapest players to highlight in the game currently as you build out your starter squad!
Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund)
The English Dortmund player is a beast on FIFA and now he is 84 rated too. Yet despite that, he is under 8,000 coins, and would complete any teams midfield – if you can make him fit.
Bellingham is strong going forward, good defensively and can pick out a pass. He also has a very good body type in FIFA that helps make him feel even better than other players in his position. He is so cheap because he is in the Bundesliga, but with his nationality it wouldn’t be hard to get him into a hybrid.
Alongside this, we feel that the following players are also ones to consider too:
- Pau Torres (Villareal) – 83
- Carlos Soler (PSG) – 83
- Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) – 82
- Ilkay Gündoğan (Manchester City) – 85
- Rafa (SL Benfica) – 82

What Influences a Players Price in FIFA 23?
There a lot of things that will influence a players price in FIFA 23 and you can build a very good side without having to break the bank, as long as you are shrewd. Obviously the quality of the player is the biggest reason why a player is expensive, but their chemistry links will also impact their value a lot too.
Players who play in stronger leagues, or have more common nationalities, will always be valued more because they are so much easier to get into a team. Position is also a factor in a players value. Forwards and midfielders are often worth more than defenders and goalkeepers are never worth too much.
