Nick Olij (Sparta Rotterdam)
"I won him recently so he has come to my attention after that. Currently averaging 63 as a last 15. His AA is around 17. Sparta are quite solid and near the top of the league. So he faces some shots but also has the good knack of keeping them out too. The back line infront of him is solid and experienced. They also have a good run of fixtures coming up. He was signed from nac and doesn’t have cards prior to this season. So the low mint makes him a slight differential too."

Tobe Leysen (RC Genk)
"I would go with Tobe Leysen from Genk, with Vandervoort moving to Leizpig I think he naturally comes in as No1 after being no2 for a few years now. Has u23 eligibility until 2026."

Niklas Hedl (Rapid Wien)
"I feel Hedl goes overlooked compared to some of the bigger names like Vandevoordt when Hedl is only 21 (turning 22 in March). He has averaged 10.7 AA over the last year and has hit 15+ AA in 10 of 33 starts. When Hedl keeps a clean sheet he has some nice upside to build off of the AA scores. Rapid Wien are usually challenging for European spots in the Austrian Bundesliga so Hedl will usually have the added utility of some mid-week usage as well."

Powell Obinna Obi (Yokohama F.Marinos)
"Known as Obi to those of us who have been watching his rise (and fall) on Sorare - started the 2020 season for F.Marinos, and shone in the Asian Champions League, just as many managers were discovering Sorare. A high price and a short-term decent return were seen before some goalkeeper shuffling saw the emergence of Yohei Takaoka at F.Marinos, and Obi was consigned to a loan in J2, at Tochigi SC. He returned to be a very able deputy at YFM last season and is still on the radar of many a J.League watcher (and Sorare manager!). The fact that Takaoka is interested in playing overseas (and with rumours of talks with Vancouver Whitecaps surfacing just in the last 48 hours), the talented Obi is a long-term hold for me and many other managers!"

Ertac Ozbir (Adana Demirspor)
"A keeper I like in terms of S05 scoring, performance, and price is Ertac Ozbir. The 33 year old plays for Adana Demirspor who currently sit 6th in the Turkish Süper Lig. On 4 October 2020, Ozbir returned to Yeni Malatyaspor and signed a two-year contract. Although Yeni Malatyaspor finished bottom (and were subsequently relegated from the Turkish league in the 2021/22 season) Ertac Ozbir was one of the best players that season and had a number of good performances in a very poor team. These performances caught the eye of Adana Demirspor who snapped him up this season with a contract until June 2024. 19 starts and 8 clean sheets so far this season is a good ratio. He's also making 3.5 saves per game with a 77% save ratio, 66 saves in total in 19 games! His pass numbers also look impressive, with 31 accurate passes per game and 86% accuracy! These numbers are better than some midfielders! His Sorare scores are also super impressive for a goalkeeper, with an L40 of 57 and an L15 of 63! He's looking a really solid option and one that I've had my eye on since the start of the season. So he's my pick of a solid goalkeeper for your S05 teams."

Rafael Romo (CD Universidad Católica)
"As a goalkeeper, I would advise Rafael Romo who has just signed for Ecuador in a club that is starting to rise, after his time in Belgium and MLS, he will be relaunching himself in a league covered in sorare and little known."

Finn Dahmen (Mainz)
"I‘m going to say Finn Dahmen. He‘s a 24-year-old German goalkeeper from Bundesliga club Mainz - but only their #2. He performed incredibly when Germany won the U21 EURO in 2021 so we all believed he would become a starter for the club too but now he‘s been on the bench for 1.5 years and it’s got to a point where he will either start for Mainz next season or get a move. There‘s a 0% chance he stays on the bench beyond the summer. He just played the last game due to an injury of Mainz‘ #1 but will most likely return to the bench again now so it could be a good time to pick him up in the next weeks while people are frustrated with him getting DNPs again - for now."

Anthony Moris (Union Saint-Gilloise)
"When I'm asked for a long term reliable and safe goalkeeper in Belgium, I always need to suggest one player first for sure: Anthony Moris from Union Saint-Gilloise. We can discuss about lots of names and potentials but if you want to win rewards there are multiple reasons to make your choice easy and to add Moris into your gallery: First of all the club is very stable thanks to the management, staff and help of Brighton they are a safe top tier club for the coming years. Secondly So5-wise his L40 is 49 and he has utility in 3 different leagues: Jupiler Pro League, Europa League and his National Team: Luxemburg.
And the last good news about this goalie: he extended his contract until 2026 with an option for an extra year. As he is almost 33, this feels like a perfect match for the long term."

Sergio Herrera (Osasuna)
"There are a lot of keepers to choose from, I always prefer to take a look at goalkeepers who can become number 1 somewhere, but they are not at the moment. Some were already included in my last article so I will choose another one. I will go for Sergio Herrera from Osasuna. He lost his spot to Fernandez when he was injured, just before the start of world cup, letting Fernandez play 3 matches. Although everybody thought he would become number 1 again after the world cup break, it was Fernandez who remained the starting goalkeeper. Herrera is starting in the Copa. Being the starting goalie for the last seasons in Osasuna, there were teams interested in him in the last transfer markets, even including Atletico Madrid to replace Oblak in case he would leave, that was last season though. In case Fernandez keeps his spot for the rest of the season, I don't think Herrera would actually want to stay at the club next summer. He definitely proved himself in la Liga at a decent team like Osasuna, so if he can't be number 1 in Pamplona, teams will be interested."

Nico Mantl (Aalborg)
"Mantl's price rose considerably during the summer based on transfer rumours that would have landed him as the starter for RB Salzburg, but a deal never materialized for Philipp Kohn, and Mantl was relegated back to the bench. However, he joined Danish Superliga side AaB on loan for the remainder of this season and should immediately slot in when they resume play in GW 347. His price is starting to climb, but it is still quite low for a U23 goalkeeper who could still end up as RB Salzburg's starter next season (when he's still U23 eligible). AaB have been dreadful defensively this year, and actually sit 11th of 12 in the table, but a relegation is of no worry to Mantl because he's only on loan."

Stefano Turati (Frosinone)
"The GK I think is one to watch for Sorare managers is Stefano Turati. He's a 21 yr old Italian who came through the youth system at Inter Milan before Sassuolo picked him up back in 2018 when he was still only 16. Made his senior debut for Sassuolo at the age of 18 in the Serie A against none other than Juventus which speaks volumes about how highly regarded he is as a GK at the club. Sassuolo have made sure his development continued at a fast pace by loaning him out to Serie B sides Reggina and Frosinone over the past few years to gain more first-team experience and it has really helped Turati to grow as a GK. Last season on loan at Reggina he played 22 Serie B games keeping clean sheets in eight games (36%) and made an average of 3.3 saves per game. This season he is playing on loan at Frosinone and so far he has played 21 games of which he has kept an incredible 11 clean sheets (52%) and conceded an impressively low average of just 0.6 goals per game. In SO5 terms this translates into an average of 54pts in his L5, 53 pts in his L15, and 55pts in his L40 where his Decisive Score average for the past year is an insane 47.2 pts per game!! He's delivered scores of 60 pts or more in 57% of all his games over the past year making him one of the best U23 GK's in terms of SO5 scoring in Sorare. However, the catch is that there are currently no Sorare cards that have been minted for him yet in the game so Sorare managers will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on him. But with his loan at Frosinone coming to an end this summer, the wonderkid Italian GK dubbed the new 'Gianluigi Buffon' in Football Manager will return to his parent club Sassuolo and should start challenging veteran Andrea Consigli for the no.1 spot should Sassuolo choose not to send Turati out on loan again next season. This would present the opportunity for Sorare to mint his card for next season giving Sorare managers the chance to add this rising star to their collection. Turati is an U23 GK with utility in the U23 league all the way until 2026 and he's a player who displays a goalkeeping maturity far beyond his years of 21. No question a player to keep close tabs on for next season and it wouldn't be a surprise to see a bigger club come in for him once he starts getting games under his belt in the Serie A because he's a real gem of a talent."
