Now this is one for those of you working at a club with a big budget. Despite his Serie A experience, Donnarumma is still just 21-years of age.

His £151.3 million release clause means he won't come cheap but, with the potential to rise to a 92 OVR, he could be a very worthwhile investment.

Andriy Lunin (OVR 75 - POT 86)

Now this is a more feasible transfer fee. Real Madrid's young stopper Andriy Lunin may begin Career Mode as a 75 OVR but he has bags of potential, rising to an 86 should he fulfil it.

You should be able to barter down from that £22.3 million release clause, a good option for a mid table Premier League club.

Now if you're not too bothered about a starting rating, then you'll find an absolute bargain in Marteen Vandervoort.

The 18-year-old has a value of just £2.4M and a measly wage of just £495 p/w. With his potential as high as 87 OVR you've got yourself a steal.

Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier has surprised many this season with a string of impressive displays for Marcelo Bielsa's side.

A tall, dominant keeper, Meslier can be a real bargain if you can snap him up early.

BARGAIN! Czech keeper Markovic can be an astute purchase

At just 18 years old, Jakub Markovic is the youngest player on the list.

The Slavia Prague prodigy has a low wage and is certainly one to keep an eye on!

The Sporting stopper has a pretty high value and release clause given his 84 potential. That being said, he is good enough to be your starting keeper from the off.

Alban Lafont (OVR 78 - POT 84)

SAFE HANDS! Lafont has been around a while now and is reliable between the sticks

You won't be able to purchase Lafont straight off the bat, as he is currently on loan at FC Nantes.

With that being said he is in a similar boat to Maximiano in that there are much better options available at a much lower cost.
