Goal looks at all the wonderkid goalkeepers in Career Mode, listing their potential ability, current rating and price in the game

All the best teams in the world are successful because they have quality talent all over the pitch. This includes the very first name on the teamsheet, the goalkeeper.

FIFA 21 is no different. Teams live or die on having good goalkeepers and signing a competent No. 1 is essential to any long-term planning. It is why Chelsea decided to turn their back on the most expensive goalkeeper in the history of football to gamble on Edouard Mendy and put the mistakes of Kepa Arrizabalaga in the past.

Long-term investments are crucial in FIFA 21 as many of the world's most promising young goalkeepers have a low current rating and may not be good enough to start right away for top-tier sides. Match experience and the right training are crucial to the development of any wonderkid in FIFA 21, so any cheap backup you sign might need to be loaned out to get first-team minutes.

The majority of goalkeepers on this list are cheap at the start of Career Mode, with the vast majority of high potential No. 1s available for less than £1 million.

Here are all the best young goalkeepers in FIFA 21 Career Mode, ordered by their potential rating in the game.
