Alexia Putellas is the highest-rated player in FIFA 23

EA Sports has released the FIFA 23 ratings of the top female football players in the game. This has been done in an effort to improve the integration of the franchise’s women’s clubs and national teams. The star of FC Barcelona’s women’s team, Alexia Putellas, not only tops the women’s ratings in FIFA 23, but the ratings of the entire game.

Many of the top female stars enter the game with fully authentic head scans. That means fans of the Women’s Super League in England, and especially the D1 Feminine in France, will be able to fully immerse themselves in the experience. EA has also confirmed that many World Cup 2023 player head scans will continue in the form of post-launch updates.

Alexia Putellas won the Ballon d’Or in 2021

Paralleling her rise in the real world, 2021 Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas sees her FIFA ratings rise dramatically, with the Spanish star earning a 92 rating at FIFA 23 and made it to the top of the list after previously failing to reach the top 10 in FIFA 21 and FIFA 22.

The immensely talented midfielder led Barcelona to a perfect record-breaking quadruple in 2021/22 and has since cemented her position as one of the greatest and most influential players of all time. Putellas, one of the best women’s footballers in the world, helped Barcelona win the Primera division in 2021 and won the Women’s Ballon d’Or to top it off.

Putellas surpasses all other regular players in the game, regardless of gender, with her overall rating of 92. An ACL injury forced Putellas out of last summer’s European Championships and she is expected to miss the rest of the current season, but her ratings remain unaffected in spite of this. Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski, Kevin De Bruyne, and FIFA 23 official cover star Kylian Mbappe are tied for first place in the men’s ratings with a 91 rating each.


Chelsea women’s striker Sam Kerr graces the FIFA 23 cover with Mbappe. Ranked 91 OVR in the new game, the Australian international scored 20 goals in her 20 appearances in the Women’s Super League last season. Lyon’s Ada Hegerberg and Wendie Renard are also rated 91 and four other female players are rated 90 OVR by EA Sports in FIFA 23. Alex Morgan, two-time world champion in the United States, and England National Team right-back Lucy Bronze are both 91.
