BEST CHOICE

LAURENT KOSCIELNY
Nationality: France 馃嚝馃嚪
Club (first season): Arsenal
Rating: 85
Potential (1): 85
Age: 31

Age is not a problem for Koscielny who is still playing at a high level. His team mate Mertesacker and the legend John Terry are also in the last year of contract but they aren’t in this Top 10 because they are too old to play as they were used to do.

Pepe is one of the best defenders in FIFA 17 Career Mode. He’s already 33 but why you should waste the chance to play with a top-quality player in your team for one or two season?!

Most of the good centre backs in the last year of contract are old. But not all. Kalas is perfect for a pre-contract. He is fast, defends well and can also be used as a right back.

This is a very balanced high-quality player. Since his contract with Arsenal is expiring, you have a good chance to improve your team with him. If you already have a good right back, why not signing him to use as backup?

Club (first season): PSV
Rating: 79
Potential (1): 84

MATTIA DE SCIGLIO
Nationality: Italy 馃嚠馃嚬
Club (first season): AC Milan
Rating: 76
Potential (1): 81

This is probably the position with less quality in FIFA 17. The talented Italian left back is only 23 which means that he can be useful for many years.

Club (first season): Hull City
Rating: 75
Potential (1): 83
Age: 22

Roberston is another player from our Top 10 of best young defenders. Sometimes you need to sign young players before they grow up and become much more expensive. That’s what will happen with this one. In three seasons he will be one of the most wanted left backs in the game.
