AC Milan have kept three clean sheets in their first four Serie A games this season, winning all four!

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is a major factor in their superb start, and his incredible FIFA stats make him a Career Mode must-have.

Dean Henderson (OVR 80 – POT 87)

Henderson

Age: 23

Position(s): GK

Value: £32.4 million (£30.2 million release clause)

Wage: £63k

After a terrific loan spell at Sheffield United, Dean Henderson is yet to see any game time this season.

Henderson is the top young English goalkeeper on FIFA 21, and with 83 GK Reflexes he is a terrific shot-stopper.

Unai Simon (OVR 80 – POT 86)

Unai Simon

Age: 23

Position(s): GK

Value: £24.3 million (£32.1 million release clause)

Wage: £18k

Will Unai Simon be Spain’s next top goalkeeper?

The Athletic Bilbao keeper boasts 83 GK Positioning and 81 GK Diving on FIFA 21, making him one of the game’s top young GKs.

Luis Maximiano (OVR 78 – POT 88)

Luís Maximiano

Age: 21

Position(s): GK

Value: £24.8 million (£26.7 million release clause)

Wage: £7k

Portuguese under-21 international Luis Maximiano looks to have a bright future ahead of him.

Aged just 21, Maximiano’s 88 potential make him a top prospect on FIFA 21 Career Mode.

Alban Lafont (OVR 78 – POT 84)

Lafont

Age: 21

Position(s): GK

Value: £16.7 million

Wage: £18k

Nantes have endured a tricky start to the season, but it could be worse without on loan keeper Alban Lafont.

82 GK Reflexes is Lafont’s best attribute, although his 79 GK Diving is pretty handy too!

Alex Meret (OVR 78 – POT 87)

Meret

Age: 23

Position(s): GK

Value: £24.3 million (£21.4 million release clause)

Wage: £36k

Italian youngster Alex Meret has only played once so far this season, keeping a clean sheet against Genoa.

With one of the highest potential’s on this list, Meret can be a great purchase for managers on a budget.

Paul Bernardoni (OVR 78 – POT 84)

Bernardoni

Age: 23

Position(s): GK

Value: £16.2 million (£20.8 million release clause)

Wage: £14k

Capped 18 times at under-21 level, French keeper Paul Bernardoni is better than Angers’ defensive record suggests!

A good young keeper on FIFA 21, Bernadoni’s 84 GK Reflexes make him excellent in 1v1 situations.

Gautier Larsonneur (OVR 77 – POT 82)

Larsonneur

Age: 23

Position(s): GK

Value: £11.7 million (£16.8 million release clause)

Wage: £14k

Another keeper whose club side are leaking goals, Gautier Larsonneur has conceded 15 goals in Stade Brestois’ first seven games.

Well balanced attributes make Larsonneur a well-rounded goalkeeper, although at 5’11” he is not the tallest on this list.

Emil Audero (OVR 77 – POT 87)

Audero

Age: 23

Position(s): GK

Value: £18 million (£20.7 million release clause)

A potential of 87 makes Audero an exciting young GK, with balanced attributes set to rise dramatically on Career Mode.

Florian Muller (OVR 76 – POT 83)

Müller 1

Age: 22

Position(s): GK

Value: £11.7 million

Wage: £14k

Freiburg’s 4-0 humbling at the hands of Borussia Dortmund make on-loan goalkeeper Florian Muller’s record look less impressive than it is.

You will have to wait for his loan to expire before signing Muller on FIFA 21, but he can be a handy purchase with a decent potential.
