Now that we’ve listed the best bargain players in the game let’s talk about what actually makes these players worth your money.

Ricardo Pereira tops this list with his insane 85 OVR, which is crazy considering that you can buy him for only 18000 coins. He’s arguably the best right-back in FIFA 21, so he’s undoubtedly the best bargain player for this position.

Dean Henderson, unsurprisingly, makes an appearance on this list. His performance in the last season for Sheffield United was incredible, which is why he’s been given an 80 OVR in FIFA 21.

Rui Patricio is the highest rated GK on the list, with an impressive OVR of 84. He also has impressive base stats and costs only 5000 coins. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Since pace has become a huge factor in the FIFA franchise now, even your defenders need decent pace stats.

This is why Dan-Axel Zagadou appears on this list, as he has very well-balanced physical stats, and having a player with such a large stature at the back will help strengthen your defense quite a bit.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin will have your midfield covered, as he has base ratings of 70+ for dribbling, passing, defending, physical, and pace. He goes for only 4100 coins, so you shouldn’t think twice about getting him.

Marcus Thuram costs only 2000 coins, yet three of his stats are sitting in the 80s. This makes him a no-brainer pick for the winger position.

If you’re looking for bargain strikers, then Franck Ribery should be the first player you lay your eyes on. He’s cemented his name in the football world as one of the best ever to do it, so there’s not much more to say.
