The newest FIFA entry is right around the corner, with FIFA 22 scheduled to release on 1st October 2021. Ultimate Team fans are eager to start their journeys once with a brand new team. 

To prepare for the new season we have begun breaking down each position, and doing the necessary prep work, to compile lists of the top players and best-priced players for each position.

We have already covered our defence, with guides for centre-backs, full-backs and goalkeepers in the bag, and now we move on to those key attacking positions. First up, an attacking midfielder.

Finding the right attacking midfielders can be tricky -- do you need someone able to dribble past opponents, or a perfect distributor to break defences with pinpoint precision? Maybe someone who can act as a shadow striker while your centre-forward plays deeper?

There's no better time to start fantasizing about opening up some sweet FIFA Ultimate Team packs and getting the player of your dreams than right before the release of a new entry.

With this in mind, let's walk you through some of the best-attacking midfielder options for you to consider depending on your budget.

It is extremely important to mention that these are estimated ratings taking into consideration two important factors -- number one, the rating of the player in question during FIFA 21, and their performance during last season.

With that said, let's get right into it.
