    But what lands him squarely on our list of Next Gen KEEPERS is his commanding performance in AZ Alkmaar's resounding 5-0 victory over Hajduk Split in the Youth League final. As reigning Youth League champions, akin to the UEFA Champions League, Owusu-Oduro is undoubtedly poised for the next step in his career.

    Lucas Chevalier

    Lucas Chevalier has undoubtedly earned his place on this list. At just 22 years old, he commands the goal for French powerhouse LOSC Lille, a contender for Champions League glory. With a market value of €18 million, he solidifies his status as one of the top talents in the goalkeeping arena.

    But what truly seals his spot among the Next Gen KEEPERS is his staggering clean sheet record. In 18 games, he has kept his goal intact a remarkable ten times, ranking third in the top-5 leagues. With a penalty save rate of 67%, his potential knows no bounds. Both LOSC Lille and the French national team are fortunate to possess such a gem!

    With his PUMA Ultra glove-and-boot combo, Chevalier relies on lightning-fast reflexes and unparalleled reaction speeds.

  • England - FC Burnley

    James Trafford

    Rounding out our quartet of goalkeeping talents is England's own James Trafford. Perhaps the most familiar name among the four, Trafford, at just 21 years old, already holds the mantle of FC Burnley's starting goalkeeper, a position in the premier and most prestigious football league in the world. With a market value of €15 million, he has progressed through all of England's youth national teams and is likely the heir apparent to England's number one, Jordan Pickford.
