Best wingers to sign in Football Manager 2022

Football Manager 2022 will get its full release next week, which means millions will once again be diving into a game -- nay, a calling -- to drive your club to success.

Because Football Manager doesn't have casual players; it has hobbyists, part and full-timers. And launch day is our first day on the job. It means getting to grips with new mechanics, deciding which team we will bless with our managerial talents (or lack thereof), and building a squad you hope will help you reach our objectives, whether that be winning the Champions League or avoiding relegation from League Two.

One of the most exciting parts of any new game is scouting out players and getting them signed up. Good scouting is what allows you to find those hidden gems from South America or pluck an overlooked target man from Belgium.

Scouting and transfers can also prove to be an agonizing process; with a new season on the horizon, finding the right player for a problem position is essential, or you risk losing games early in the season.
