FM21: Top 10 Wonderkid Goalkeepers (GK) - Vandevoort, Gasparini, Iturbe & more

FM 21 is here!

Goalkeepers can last longer than any other position on the pitch, so picking up a wonderkid between the sticks could serve you well for 20+ years.

Wonderkid Goalkeepers

Every single goalkeeper in this list will be 19-year-old or younger.

So that means no Gianlugi Donnarumma, although he's still pretty good!

Maarten Vandevoordt (CA 105 - PA 150-180)

Vandevoordt FM21

Age: 18

Club: KRC Genk

Value: £150k

The first name in the list is Genk's 18-year-old stopper, Maarten Vandevoordt.

Despite making his UCL debut last season, the Belgian is still listed as a Future Prospect for the Pro League club.

Vandevoort has the best potential of any wonderkid GK on FM21. He's worth picking up whilst you still can!

Manuel Gasparini (CA 101 - PA 140-170)

Gasparini FM21

Age: 18

Club: Udinese

Value: £67k

Could we be looking at the next Gianluigi Donnarumma?

Gasparini is currently turning out for Udinese's U20's but is listed as a Breakthrough Prospect at the club. A £67k value and a £2.1k p/w wage means he is a very cheap risk to take should you give the Italian a shot.

Stefan Bajic (CA 100 - PA 140-170)

Bajic FM21

Age: 18

Club: Saint-Etienne

Value: £100k

Another player who has tasted first team football in one of the 'big five' leagues is Stefan Bajic.

The 18-year-old made his senior debut for Saint-Etienne last year but failed to secure the gig full time. He remains a top prospect in FM21.

Alejandro Iturbe (CA N/A - PA 140-170)

Age: 16

Club: Atletico Madrid

Value: £8.25k

At just 16-years-old, Alejandro Iturbe is comfortably the youngest goalkeeper on this list.

But that's not to say he's any less valuable. The Spaniard has all the potential to go to the very top and could definitely don the goalkeeper jersey for your reserve side to help his development.

Kristoffer Klaesson (CA 109 - PA 130-160)

Klaesson FM21

Age: 19

Club: Valerenga

Value: £375k

He may not be playing in one of the big leagues, but Kristoffer Klaesson has first team experience on his side.

The 19-year-old is listed as an Important Player at Valerenga which means he may be more difficult to get hold of, but his match fitness means he'll be able to walk straight into your side.

Gabriel Brazao (CA 105 - PA 130-160)

Screenshot 2020 11 16 at 16 17 58

Age: 19

Club: Oviedo (On loan from Inter)

Value: £150k

Another on-loan keeper who's worth tracking is Inter Milan's Gabriel Brazao.

The Italian will spend a season getting some much needed minutes at Spanish side Ovideo, meaning he will be raring to go once his season-long loan deal expires.

Alessandro Russo (CA 104 - PA 130-160)

Screenshot 2020 11 16 at 16 24 41

Age: 19

Club: Entella (On loan from Sassuolo)

Value: £375k

The final name on the list is yet another loanee, Sassuolo goalkeeper Alessandro Ruso.

The Italian is yet another keeper out picking up some invaluable minutes, with his ability set to increase significantly over the first twelve months of your save.
