Wilfred Ndidi is the highest-rated Nigerian player in FIFA 22. With an overall rating of 85, Ndidi is hard to ignore when listing the best midfielders in the game.

The former Nath Boys star began his career in Europe by playing for Belgian side Genk. In 2017, Leicester City brought him to King Power Stadium, where he established himself as one of the best Premier League midfielders. 

In addition to being an excellent central midfielder, Ndidi is strong enough defensively to cover for your team’s centre-backs. The 25-year-old also has a potential rating of 88, which leaves enough room if you decide to improve his attacking abilities.
