Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be looking ahead at the best players you can pick on the game, with today’s focus on the best bargain goalkeepers.
5 Yann Sommer – £2.0m
Everyone will be keeping an eye on Premier League stalwarts Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka from Switzerland’s World Cup squad this summer, but it might be their goalkeeper who interests you most.
Turning out for Champions League regular’s Monchengladbach, Sommer was reportedly on Pep Guardiola’s radar last summer before the Man City boss signed Edurado.
4 Matthew Ryan – £1.0m
As cheap as it gets this summer.
Brighton’s shot-stopper could prove to be a popular choice, following his solid first season in the Premier League.
Before that, he was twice voted Belgium’s goalkeeper of the year at Club Brugge, while he faced the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in La Liga with Valencia.
3 Igor Akinfeev – £2.5m
Russia’s No 1, captain and talisman is perhaps one of the few players you’ll probably recognise from the host-nation’s squad this summer.
Having made his debut for CSKA Moscow in 2003, he’s been the best option in goal for club and country ever-since.
Might fancy going far on home soil.
2 Danijel Subasic – £2.5m
One of the heroes of Monaco’s brilliant Ligue 1 title-charge of 2016-2017, Subasic will be Croatia’s go-to goalie at the World Cup.
He’ll need to be at his very best, with their defence is clearly the biggest concern in a squad otherwise packed-full with talent.
1 Kasper Schmeichel – £2.5m
A face we all know very well.
One of the main-players in Leicester’s incredible Premier League title-win a couple of years ago, Schmeichel will be desperate to achieve the same sort of unprecedented success this summer with Denmark.
An awesome shot-stopper and capable of setting up quick counter-attacks with his distribution, he could be a great option at the back.
