The 10 best FC 24 strikers and top alternatives

From Erling Haaland to Marcus Rashford, Kylian Mbappé to Harry Kane, here are the best FC 24 strikers in EA's latest PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch game.

FC 24 best strikers: Haaland and Mbappe

Goal-scoring is an art form, and the pitch is merely a canvas for the best FC 24 strikers. Boasting the means to weave through defensive lines with ease, getting themselves into prime position to once again bang it in top bins with clinical precision, the world’s greatest finishers instinctively know where the goal is, even when their backs are turned to it. And our EA FC 24 best strikers list includes the most proficient goal-scorers you can acquire in-game.

Taking the sports game’s top talents in front of goal from our FC 24 ratings list, this guide will give you the full rundown on who the most lethal threats to the opposition goal are in the FC 24 era – be it in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team or even EA FC 24 Career Mode. We’ll also be offering up some top picks outside of the top 10 that can either dominate the opposition, or serve as more budget-friendly options if you don’t have the UT Coins or Career Mode dollars to stump up for the top talents.

Best FC 24 strikers

The best FC 24 strikers are:

  • Kylian Mbappe – 91
  • Erling Haaland – 91 
  • Sam Kerr – 90
  • Harry Kane – 90 
  • Robert Lewandowski – 90 
  • Alex Morgan – 89
  • Ada Hegerberg – 89
  • Antoine Griezmann – 88
  • Victor Osimhen – 88
  • Alexandra Popp – 88

As you can see, Kylian Mbappé continues to top the list, despite a standout season from Erling Haaland in the Premier League. The Frenchman not only managed 29 goals in 34 Ligue 1 appearances this year, but managed to scoop up the Golden Boot in the 2022 World Cup.

Mbappé is not alone at the top, however. Erling Haaland broke the Premier League single-season goal-scoring record in 2022/23, en route to completing a historic treble-winning year with Manchester City. His rapid ascension to the top of the EA FC world is very much to be expected, though as you can see in our FC 24 Haaland rating guide we didn’t expect him to be put on the same pedestal as Mbappé just yet.

Sam Kerr once again features as the best striker in the FC 24 women’s ratings, and one of the best in FC 24 overall. The Aussie goal-getter had a relatively quiet 2022/23 with Chelsea, and only managed a single goal at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup – an absolute screamer against England, might we add. Needless to say, though the quantity hasn’t quite been there for Kerr, her quality more than continues to shine through, which appears to be why EA Sports has only docked her a single mark overall.

The other two standout strikers in our list are the magnificent Robert Lewandowski and Harry Kane. Lewa managed a strong return in his first season at the Nou Camp, despite operating in a new team, in an unfamiliar league. Kane, meanwhile, almost equalled Haaland’s goal tally despite operating in a weaker Spurs side. Now at Bayern Munich, the Englishman is already off to a hot start in 2023/24.

FC 24 strikers top alternatives

While the cream of the crop stand out for the obvious reasons, there are plenty of elite strikers outside of the top 10 that we expect to be popular picks in Ultimate Team and beyond. These include:

  • Rafael Leão – 86
  • Marcus Rashford – 85
  • Randal Kolo Muani – 84

Hang on, what’s Rafael Leão doing on this list? Well, the pacey AC Milan star isn’t just marked down as one of the best FC 24 wingers in this year’s game, but a top-tier CF and striker as well. Sporting a whopping 93 Pace, as well as 87 Dribbling, Leão’s ability to run at defenders will make him an absolute monster up top, even if his 80 Shooting lets him down a tad.

Likewise, Marcus Rashford can also operate as a striker, alongside his usual position on the left wing. Though he isn’t quite as rapid as Leão, his 86 Shooting more than makes up for it. While he’s currently the priciest option in our alternatives list according to FUTWIZ, the Englishman is more than worth it.

The final player on this list is none other than Paris Saint-Germain’s new $100 million man, Randal Kolo Muani. Coming in at a fraction of the price of Rashford in Ultimate Team right now, Kolo Muani is a shrewd buy for anyone in the market for a bargain. What’s more, he still comes complete with all the skills to pay the bills, including 91 Pace, 86 Dribbling, and 78 Shooting.
