The FIFA 22 Bundesliga Team of the Season Nominees have been revealed. There are 40 nominees for this year's Bundesliga TOTS, featuring some big names who all deserve a look.

There are ten total defender nominees for the TOTS, and five goalkeeper nominees. Here is the full list of defender and goalkeeper nominees from the Bundesligsa TOTS, and how to vote for them.

Bundesliga TOTS Defender Nominees

  • Alphonso Davies - Bayern Munich
  • Nico Schlotterbeck - SC Freiburg
  • Christian Günter - SC Freiburg
  • Josko Gvardiol - RB Leipzig
  • Angelino - RB Leipzig
  • Borna Sosa - VFB Stuttgart
  • Evan Ndicka - Frankfurt
  • Jeremie Frimpong - Bayer Leverkusen
  • David Raum - TSG Hoffenheim
  • Moussa Niakhate - 1. FSV Mainz 05

Unfortunately, we missed out on a TOTS Niklas Süle and Stefan Lanier, who we nominated for the TOTS after having great seasons in the backline for Bayern and M'Gladbach respectively. However, two of the breakout defenders we chose for the Bundesliga TOTS, Schlotterbeck, and Raum, are nominated and maybe top choices among voters.

As for the last two picks, we'd vote for Evan Ndicka and Jeremie Frimpong, who are both great players in both FIFA and in the Bundesliga this year. Both received Future Star items in FIFA 22, and are living up to the hype for their respective clubs in Germany. Honorable mention goes to Moussa Niakhate and Angelino as well who also have played outstanding.

Bundesliga TOTS Goalkeeper Nominees

  • Mark Flekken - SC Freiburg
  • Yann Sommer - Borussia M'gladbach
  • Kevin Trapp - Frankfurt
  • Manuel Riemann - VFL Bochum
  • Manuel Neuer - Bayern Munich

Koen Casteels was our vote for the Bundesliga TOTS keeper, however, since he wasn't nominated this year despite being tied for first in the league in clean sheets. In his place, we would vote between Neuer, Trapp or Sommer, with Neuer as the likely winner.

You can vote for the Bundesliga TOTS now for a limited time. Head over to EA Sports FIFA's official website to vote now for each position, choosing a GK, four defenders, three midfielders, and three attackers.

We'll find out on May 13 who's named to the Bundesliga TOTS in FIFA 22, which is likely to be one of the best we've seen from the league in years.
