Inter Milan goalkeeper Yann Sommer currently leads the standings of the Big Five European Leagues in terms of clean sheets.
The Nerazzurri custodian swiftly cemented himself as a reliable replacement for Andre Onana following his arrival in the summer.
The experienced shot-stopper left Bayern Munich following a brief stint in favor of joining Simone Inzaghi’s ranks.
His decision has paid off, as he’s currently enjoying one of the best runs of his playing career.
Sommer earned his 14th Serie A clean sheet in the Derby d’Italia victory over Juventus.
This proved to be a surprisingly easy feat as Dusan Vlahovic and company failed to direct a single shot on target.
Nevertheless, the Swiss has been solid since the start of the season.
According to Opta via FcInterNews, Sommer has thus far collected more clean sheets than any other goalkeeper in Europe’s Top Five leagues.
The 35-year-old is leading the charts with 14 clean sheets.
The former Basel and Borussia Monchengladbach man also has the opportunity to make Serie A history this season.

As we reported yesterday, Sommer is on track to break the league record for the most clean sheets in one campaign.
Gianluigi Buffon, Morgan De Sanctis and Ivan Provedel currently share the record with 21 shutouts.
Thus, the Nerazzurri custodian can shatter it by earning eight clean sheets in his club’s remaining 16 Serie A fixtures.
Overall, Sommer has thus far recorded 19 shutouts across all competitions since joining the Italian giants. He only conceded 12 goals in 29 appearances.
