19. Ahmed Musa | Club: Leicester City | Pace: 93
Leicester City’s summer signing may not have played too much in real life but he could form a pacy partnership with Jamie Vardy on FIFA17.
18. Kingsley Coman | Club: Bayern Munich | Pace: 93

17. Bruma | Club: Galatasaray | Pace: 93
Bruma is only 21-years-old and is showing signs of being yet another Portugal wonderkid. He’s been called up for his international side but hasn’t been capped yet. Expect that to change this season.
16. Jordi Alba | Club: Barcelona | Pace: 93
Alba may not be the biggest star in the Barcelona team, but he’s the quickest. Handy when you make a mistake and you need him to recover.
15. Raheem Sterling | Club: Manchester City | Pace 93
Sterling has started life under Pep Guardiola in fine form and he looks to be a very good player in FIFA17. His pace of 93 will cause all sorts of problems
14. Lucas | Club: PSG | Pace: 93
The Brazilian is renowned for his searing pace. PSG may have lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic but the French club will still be highly-rated on the game with the pace of Lucas.
13. Jonas Aguirre | Club: Rosario Central | Pace 94
If you enjoy playing as Argentinian team, then Rosario Central could be the side for you. Why? Because they have Jonas Aguirre - a playmaker with ridiculous pace.
12. Kekuta Manneh | Club: Vancouver Whitecaps | Pace: 94
The Gambian is just 21-years-old and could be a very decent player on FIFA17. Reports suggest that Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool have scouted him in real life. Check him out.
11. Nnamdi Oduamadi | Club: HJK Helsinki | Pace: 94
Oduamadi is a 25-year-old on loan from AC Milan. The forward has been capped 13 times for Nigeria but only has an overall rating of 66.
10. Ryo Miyaichi | Club: FC St. Pauli | Pace 94
Arsenal fans may remember the name. The Japan international played twice for the Gunners during the 2011/12 season and a further five times in the 2013/14 campaign. He may not have made it in north London but he’s got pace to burn.
9. Jefferson Cuero | Club: Monarcas Morelia | Pace: 94
Another Colombian but Cuero hasn’t been capped for his country yet. He’s currently plying his trade in Mexico and has an overall rating of 74.
8. Hector Villalba | Club: Club Tijuana | Pace: 94
The 22-year-old Argentine is on loan to Mexican side Club Tijuana from American side Atlanta United. His may have pace but his rating of 74 may mean Villalba may not be too effective.
7. Gareth Bale | Club: Real Madrid | Pace: 94
One of the best players in the game and also one of the quickest. It means the Welshman will be absolutely lethal on the new game. Bale and Ronaldo will mean Madrid are one of the most popular teams to play with.
6. Ernest Asante | Club: FC Nordsjælland | Pace 95
The right-winger is lightening quick but the 27-year-old hasn’t been capped by Ghana in his career. If you ever find yourself up against Danish side FC Nordsjælland, watch out for him.
5. Jurgen Damm | Club: Tigres UANL | Pace: 95
Yet another player in the Mexican league, Damm is super fast. In fact, according to a study conducted by Mexican club Pachuca, and backed by FIFA, Damm is the second fastest player in the world, behind only Gareth Bale. He is able to reach 35.23 km/h running with the ball.
4. Hector Bellerín | Club: Arsenal | Pace: 95
The Arsenal right-back has impressed with his defensive ability in recent years but he’s been helped by his incredible pace. At just 21-years-old, could Bellerin soon become the fastest player in the game?
3. Jonathan Biabiany | Club: Inter Milan | Pace: 95
He may not get near the French side but Biabiany is extremely dangerous. He turns 29 next year so expect his pace to soon start decreasing with his advancing years.
2. Mathis Bolly | Club: SpVgg Greuther Fürth | Pace: 96
Who? The Norwegian–Ivorian has made five appearances for Ivory Coast but is currently plying his trade in the Bundesliga second division.
1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang | Club: Borussia Dortmund | Pace: 96
A fantastic finisher, with incredible pace and an overall rating of 86, Aubameyang will be amazing on FIFA17. He will score bags of goals as his pace exploits every defenders that tries to race him.
