Ciro Immobile - 94 ST

Upgrade: 4* Weak Foot > 5* Weak Foot & 3* Skill Moves > 4* Skill Moves

Ciro Immobile has been nothing short of incredible this year in Serie A, however his FUT cards are somewhat underused with a lack of skill moves and and 5* weak foot. This FUT Birthday card would be one of the best strikers in the game, a highly demanded item.

Paul Pogba - 93 CM

Upgrade: 4* Weak Foot > 5* Weak Foot

Due to Pogba’s long term injury woes this season, we haven’t yet seen a single upgraded version of Pogba. FUT Birthday could easily be the opportunity for a boosted Pogba, now with 5* Weak Foot to match his 5* skill moves.

Paulo Dybala

Upgrade: 3* Weak Foot > 5* Weak Foot

Unfortunately for Dybala, he’s regularly overlooked in FUT due to only possessing a 3* weak foot, which makes him rather predictable in attacks. With a boosted 5* weak foot card this FUT Birthday, he’d no doubt be one of the most popular attacking midfielders in FUT.

Timo Werner - 94 ST

Upgrade: 3* Skill Moves > 5* Skill Moves

Werner is no doubt a solid attacker in FUT this year, however only having 3* skill moves does make him slightly less desirable than other attackers. With a +2 skill move boost, he’ll have pretty much everything needed to be a top tier meta striker and will be highly desirable.

 

Gareth Bale - 91 RW

Upgrade: 3* Weak Foot > 5* Weak Foot

Despite having a rocky season at Real Madrid, Bale is still a top card to use in FUT and could be made to be massively popular with a boost to 5* weak foot. With a strong weak foot, along with his pace and technical ability going forward, Bale would be a real handful.

Memphis Depay - 90 CF

Upgrade: 3* Weak Foot > 5* Weak Foot

With the tricky Dutchman already having 5* skill moves in FUT, a 5* weak foot boost to accompany them would make him a scary attacker to utilise in Ligue 1. Imagine the 4 man attack of Depay, Neymar, Mbappe and Ben Yedder!

Joe Gomez - 89 CB

Upgrade: 3* Skill Moves > 5* Skill Moves

Following the rather odd upgrades that were applied to CBs in team 1, Joe Gomez could be a good player to give 5* skill moves to, if EA follows the same pattern. A rock defensively, Gomez also possesses some technical ability that would allow him to utilise the skill moves somewhat.

Quincy Promes - 88 LW 

Upgrade: 4* Weak Foot > 5* Weak Foot

Promes has been one of the best super subs in FUT this year, with many using his Ones to Watch card throughout the year. What better way to celebrate such a popular card by giving him a big overall stat boost, as well as a 5* weak foot during FUT Birthday.

Presnel Kimpembe - 88 CB

Upgrade: 3* Skill Moves > 5* Skill Moves

Another CB that could be up for a skill move upgrade, Kimpembe has only received 1 upgrade so far this year. With a big boost in overall and stats, he’d become not only one of the better Ligue 1 CBs, but a fun 5* skill CB option, with decent enough dribbling to pull them off.

Jose Gaya - 87 LB

Upgrade: 4* Skill Moves > 5* Skill Moves & 3* Weak Foot > 4* Weak Foot

Similar to Cancelo’s boosts from the first team, we’d love to see Gaya get a big boost, with +1 skill moves and +1 weak foot, to make him an exciting attacking full-back option in La Liga.
