FIFA 23's Shapeshifters feature several very famous star players, and each of the best Shapeshifters plays a different position than they usually do in the actual game. Each Shapeshifter brings an unusual quality to their new position, with midfielders given new freedom and former goalkeepers dominating the center of the pitch. Some of the best FUT Icons (like Pele) also received Shapeshifters cards, and today I'm going to introduce you ten of the best Shapeshifters.

FIFA 23

10. Vitinha - 94 Overall

  • Five - Star Skill Moves
  • Four - Star Weak Foot
  • High/Med Work Rates

Vitinha's new position is forward, and he makes the most of his quickness while dribbling with his left stick. His outside shot, flair and skill just astounds you.

FUT Vitinha

Vitinha's meta - survivability will only increase with his PSG links, allowing Mbappe to play alongside him to enhance the chemistry. Since his Squad Builder Challenge (SBC) only costs less than 200,000 FUT 23 Coins to complete, Vitinha might be one of the best strikers in FIFA Ultimate Team at this price.

9. Gianluigi Buffon - 93 Overall

  • Four - Star Skill Moves
  • Five - Star Weak Foot
  • Med/High Work Rates

I believe that the appearance of Gianluigi Buffon surprised you and shocked everyone. Buffon is a high - level Shapeshifter, which means he will automatically be able to get the most chemistry on your team no matter who else is in your lineup.

FUT Gianluigi Buffon

Aside from his senior bonus, Buffon is certainly no slouch, with excellent attribute distribution and a 6'4" body that allows him to deny opponents scoring opportunities before they arise. His new position is centre - back due to his size being bulkier than some. Available for less than 50,000 coins in SBC, this card is a must have.

8. Toni Kroos - 97 Overall

  • Five - Star Skill Moves
  • Five - Star Weak Foot
  • High/High Work Rates

While the selection of seasonal rewards at level 30 is tempting, once you've honed your XP, Toni Kroos is easily the smartest reward choice. Apart from an absolutely ridiculous set of attributes, Toni Kroos maintains a similar position in midfield, where he is best suited to play anyway.

FUT Toni Kroos

Kroos can play well as a CDM or CAM, but be aware that if you put him in a high - level role, he will tire early in the second half. His high work rate ensured that Kroos was always drawing the ball, but it did wear him down. Overcoming stamina issues, Kroos can do a lot at an elite level, and his Passing and Shooting are his standout qualities. If you need a midfield maestro, look no further than Kroos.

7. Bruno Fernandes - 97 Overall

  • Five - Star Skill Moves
  • Four - Star Weak Foot
  • High/High Work Rates

Bruno Fernandes is also a Manchester United star, with the size and speed best suited to running around the touchline. At 5'10", Fernandes has the size and speed to be an elite winger. His passing, shooting skills and speed are all very good, so he is rarely in trouble on the pitch.

FUT Bruno Fernandes

In addition to the above outstanding attributes of this card, Fernandes has some key traits that suit his position, such as Outside Foot Shot and Flair, which make him stand out among his seven cards. While his market price makes him a luxury player that many cannot afford, his excellent quality and 99 per stat make Bruno a joy to use, so you can give it a shot.

6. Frenkie De Jong - 96 Overall

  • Four - Star Skill Moves
  • Five - Star Weak Foot
  • High/High Work Rates

FUT Frenkie De Jong

Frenkie De Jong is a very well-rounded Shapeshifters, because his attributes are balanced in all aspects, and he can play well in both midfield and defense. However, De Jong is not just a defensive player, his high offensive efficiency is perfectly combined with his talent, so you can also transfer him to other positions, his attributes are very adaptable to the position.

5. Riyadh Mahrez - 95 Overall

  • Five - Star Skill Moves
  • Five - Star Weak Foot
  • High/Med Work Rates

Riyadh Mahrez moved from wide to central and excelled as a striker, taking dangerous shots. What attracts you the most is Mahrez's ability to shoot efficiently from all areas of the pitch.

FUT Riyadh Mahrez

He has all the skills a striker needs, and his attributes basically guarantee a skillful shot every game.

4. Ousmane Dembele - 97 Overall

  • Five - Star Skill Moves
  • Five - Star Weak Foot
  • High/Med Work Rates

FUT Ousmane Dembele

Dembele's price makes him one of the most expensive Shapeshifters in FIFA 23, so you'll need to be lucky or save a lot of gold to get him. At the same time, he is also an excellent Shapeshifter, and his technical movements on the court are perfect.

3. Vanja Milinkovic - Savic - 93 Overall

  • Five - Star Skill Moves
  • Four - Star Weak Foot
  • Medium/High Work Rates

FUT Vanja Milinkovic - Savic

Vanja has easily claimed the title of biggest surprise in FIFA 23, with the goalkeeper receiving a transformation card that terrorizes midfielders of all skill levels. With his 6'8" height, Vanja's unrivaled size allows him to intercept passes with no problem. Despite his mediocre agility, his size makes him perfect for playing a defensive role and plugging holes in front of the centre - backs when needed.

2. Paul Pogba - 97 Overall

  • Five - Star Skill Moves
  • Five - Star Weak Foot
  • High/Low Work Rates

FUT Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba is another Shapeshifter who has his size advantage in his new forward position. Pogba’s 6'3", 95 stamina and 95 speed make him one of the most lethal attackers this year. All of these qualities help Pogba be in a good position to capitalize on his 97 shots, with everything he has to make him an unstoppable force.

1. Virgil Van Dijk - 98 Overall

  • Four - Star Skill Moves
  • Five - Star Weak Foot
  • Medium/High Work Rates

Like Frenkie De Jong, Virgil Van Dijk possesses unbelievably high quality which, combined with his incredible combination of size, speed and technique makes him a threat in all three areas of the pitch.

FUT Virgil Van Dijk

While his main characteristic is a powerful header, few qualities can overshadow the importance of Van Dijk's 6'4" height and unique size, allowing him to dominate other players. Although he is programmed as a CDM, you can also move him to the fullback position and you will find no better defender than Van Dijk.
