Looking forward #1 - Top 5 GK wonderkids in FMH16

Hey guys!

Who doesn’t love a good FM wonderkid?

From Freddy Adu to Eder Alvarez Balanta – a good wonderkid should evoke feelings of excitement, wonder and awe at their world-class potential and their game changing performances for many years to come.

With FMH16 around the corner, let’s take a look at some players who can achieve ‘wonderkid’ status in the upcoming game.

Today, we look at the top 5 Goalkeepers of FMH16:

(All goalkeepers in this list are 22 or under - a true 'kid' - Sorry to any Courtois / ter Stegen / Rulli / Leno fans)

Number 5

Kepa Arrizabalaga



At only 20 years old, Kepa Arrizabalaga is not yet a household name by any means, but he still has many years left to hone his goalkeeping skills.

Having been a part of second-tier Bilbao Athletic since 2012, he has made 50 appearances for them since across all variety of matches.

At the start of FMH16 – Kepa is on a season-long loan to fellow Segunda Division side Real Valladolid, who were relegated from La Liga two seasons ago.

No doubt he is a risk buy and may not always blossom – but considering his likely low cost, it may be worth a shot for the risk-hungry manager among you. 

Number 4

Sam Johnstone



At number 4, its time for some good ole English talent - Man Utd keeper Sam Johnstone.

Sam hasn't had much of a run in the Premier League so far, having been loaned out to five different lower league clubs since joining Man Utd in 2011.

But, he has picked up a lot of valuable skills in the meantime, even helping Preston North End to achieve promotion to the Championship last season - keeping a clean sheet in the 4-0 victory.

In preseason - he played with the Man Utd first time on several occassions and even featured on Man Utd's bench as second choice keeper for the season opening clash with Tottenham last weekend!

Number 3

Paul Nardi



At number 3, it’s AS Monaco’s young talent, Paul Nardi

Last season, he was loaned out to his former club, AS Nancy in Ligue 2.

Paul is still developing – although part of AS Monaco, he is yet to make an appearance for them.

However, that could all change this season. AS Monaco has indicated they will keep Nardi in the squad for the upcoming season as their second choice behind Danjiel Subasic.

Number 2

Timo Horn



At number 2, it’s the 22 year old German keeper, Timo Horn.

Timo is no stranger to the big leagues, having been with FC Koln since 2010 and has had regular game time since 2012, when FC Koln was still in the German second division, 2. Bundesliga.

Timo was also an important part of Koln team that earned promotion to the Bundesliga in 2013-14, and last season made 36 first team appearances in the Bundesliga.

As FC Koln’s first choice keeper, Timo will start FMH16 in the Bundesliga after Koln easily avoided relegation, and finished 12th in the Bundesliga last season.

A phenomenal talent – look out for his name in the transfer rumour mill this year.

Number 1

Simone Scuffet



It should be no surprise that our #1 wonderkid is – Simone Scuffet from Udinese.

At the ridiculously young age of just 19, Scuffet has built up a reputation and has a very bright future in the Serie A and as Italy’s next goalkeeper after Buffon's retirement. 

He will not be cheap to pry away from Udinese at the start of FMH16, but if you do, you will most definitely be rewarded

What do you think of my predictions? Who do you think will be a proper wonderkid goalkeeper in FMH16? Is there anyone I've missed? Please leave your comments below!

Scufett and Horn are godlike goalkeepers in the game, never knew the other 3, but looks good. Nice work.

Cheers mate! Yep the others are not as well known but I'm hoping to highlight some of the lessor known and cheaper players with this series as they may be upgraded with FMH16.

Great work. I am surprised Sam Johnstone was included but he could be very good so great inclusions :) . 

Thanks Dec :) As I said above, hoping to include a few lesser known players and see how they pan out in FMH16!
