The Transfer Window is officially closed in the Premier League as teams are set and ready to go on the hard road of battling in the Premier League. Even though there were some T-Rex sized transfers at the start of the year, on deadline day we have seen some massive moves that can truly improve your fantasy team. Yes, sometimes these players are gambles, because it's hard to judge how a player will act in his new setting. Regardless, these three players are ready to take the step up (or step down) and will take the Premier League by storm. So please, just enjoy and ride those coat tales.
Serge Aurier (D): Tottenham Hotspur F.C. - £6.0m
The extremely controversial Serge Aurier seemed like he was going to ease into his new role at Tottenham as they still had Kieran Trippier to help him get acquainted with Tottenham. Sadly, for the English right-back he has pulled out of international duty with his second injury of the season. No matter how bad it is, this is a teller that Serge Aurier may be battling with a young and newly promoted right-back Kyle Walker-Peters, and no offense to KWP, we know who is going to win that. Even with the price of 6.0m, this is a great move since he will get you points for clean sheets, and he will also get forward and play as a true Wing Back as Kyle Walker did for Spurs last season (except with better crossing). In my opinion, you need one elite defender to help rack up important points, and he is one of the players I would go for. With 89% of passes completed last season, an average of 1.1 chances created a game, (from regular right-back) and an average of 1.5 interceptions a game, this guy is a complete and utter beast.
Wilfried Bony (F): Swansea City A.F.C. - £6.0m
Wilfried Bony has given up the rent-a-striker life-style and returns to his true home in the Premier League which is Swansea City. Even though this is a massive move since they instantly replaced Fernando Llorente who went to Spurs, the big headlines will be on their loan accusation of Bayern's Renato Sanches. No matter what, for the value for 6.0m, he is a great third striker just to notch you some key points as I see him going back to his stellar form when he was with the Swans. In saying this, I wouldn't think of him as your top striker, but for the other players in his price range, he is one of the players that have the lowest risk.
Renato Sanches (M): Swansea City A.F.C. - £5.0m
Renato Sanches was the hottest commodity last summer as he had every world giant chasing him and the German giants bought the Portuguese stud for £18.00m! Now a year off being the most exciting youngster in the world, his profile just went to some kid that every FIFA Ultimate Team player used since Dele Alli, Kylian Mbappé, Marco Asensio and Ousmane Dembélé are now fighting for the spot of King of the Kids. Now he will take his talents to the gorgeous country of Wales as Swansea beat out teams like West Ham and other European clubs for the season long loan deal. I know it's crazy to think out of all places, he would go to Swansea but it's not that insane. Paul Clement, the Swansea manager, has a good connection with Bayern Munich which means this kid will get extensive playing time. Obviously, he didn't show it last season in Germany but the kid has talent, and there's no reason not to use him as a squad player/rotated midfielder. Also, this guy has the skill to control games (look at the Euros). I do believe this could be a risk for the first two games or so, but when this kid hits the ground, he will not stop running.
Well! That's all we have for now! Make sure to come back soon as we will more fantasy talk and the preview for the big Premier League weekend ahead. Once again, I love all, thanks for the support!
