The release of FIFA 22 is inching ever so closer with fans of the series and Ultimate Team enthusiasts alike excited to discover all the new changes EA Sports has cooked up this time around.

FUT fans know that with a new FIFA release and the start of the footballing season after a hectic summer period that saw Argentina win the Copa América and Italy take the Euros, the Ones-to-Watch cards are always, well, ones-to-watch.

The OTWs are a selection of the most eye-catching transfers in the world of football, mixing high-profile talent and promising young up and comers. These cards are called 'Live items,' meaning that the player in question will receive stat boosts according to performances in real life, and the card will match the stats of a potential POTM, TOTW, or any other type of card.

Let's take a look at everything you need to know about FIFA 22 OTWs.
