Jan Oblak is the most highly-valued goalkeeper in world football, but what other number ones feature in the top 10?

FootballTransfers' transfer valuations are calculated in collaboration with SciSports, a world-leading football analytics agency that assesses the relative transfer valuations of over 60,000 professional footballers worldwide. SciSports use multiple data points including current and potential ability, contract length, form, age, and other crucial factors.

Oblak is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in world football and has held that status for years now due to his exploits for Atletico Madrid.

In the 2020/21 season his outstanding performances in goal saw Los Colchoneros beat Real Madrid and Barcelona to win La Liga. He would subsequently win the award for La Liga Player of the Season.

He is valued at €82.5m.

The second-highest valued goalkeeper on our list is Thibaut Courtois at €74.6m. It seems like the Belgian has been around forever, having featured for Atletico, Chelsea and now Real Madrid, but he is still only 29 which contributes to his high value.

After a shaky first season at Santiago Bernabeu, he has now retained his status as one of the best around.

In third and fourth are Ederson (€67.2m) and Alisson (€65.1m) of Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.

The pair compete for minutes with the Brazil national team, and it is perhaps only due to being one year older than Alisson is placed lower.

Paris Saint-Germain pulled off a coup this summer when they signed Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free transfer from Juventus. He is valued at €63m in fifth place, so certainly an outstanding piece of business from the French giants.

In sixth is Marc-Andre ter Stegen (€55.4m), possibly Barcelona's most consistent performers over the last few years apart from Lionel Messi.

Peter Gulacsi has certainly put his ill-fated spell with Liverpool behind him as the RB Leipzig man is now the seventh-highest valued goalkeeper in the world at €34.4m.

In eighth is England stopper Jordan Pickford, valued at €30.4m.

The joint second oldest goalkeeper on our list is Wojciech Szczesny, with the Juventus man in ninth at €29.5m.

Rounding out the top 10 is Unai Simon, valued at €28.6m.
