Fantasy Premier League: Top 5 new signings from abroad

Who are the five best fantasy options coming into the Premier League from abroad?

RealSport’s Fantasy Premier League experts are helping you get your squad in order for the beginning of the season and following our club guides, we take a look at the top five new arrivals in the Premier League from abroad.

  1. 1 Bernardo Silva (Man City, MID, 8.0m)

    Manchester City’s main aim this summer has been to revitalise their squad with youthful players and Bernardo Silva seems to be the replacement for David Silva.

    The Portuguese playmaker is extremely intelligent on the ball and he can chip in with a few goals as well.

    It remains to be seen how he rotates with City’s other attacking options, but it's likely he'll be on our radar for a long time.

  2. 2 Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal, FWD, 10.5m)

    Finally, Arsenal have bought a striker (no offence Olivier Giroud!)

    Alexandre Lacazette comes into the Premier League on the back of an excellent record in France.

    He has scored almost one goal in every two games for Lyon, and in the last three seasons he has notched 78 in 97 Ligue 1 appearances!

  3. 3 Mohamed Salah (Liverpool, MID, 9.0m)

    After a frankly disastrous spell at Chelsea (only 13 matches for the Blues between loan spells at Roma and Fiorentina), Mohamed Salah has a point to prove in the Premier League.

    Jurgen Klopp has given him that chance at Liverpool and he has settled in well during pre-season.

    Salah managed 15 goals and 11 assists in Serie A for Roma last season, so hopefully he can improve on that tally this year and we can all reap the benefits!

  4. 4 Alvaro Morata (Chelsea, FWD, 10.0m)

    Chelsea have replaced Diego Costa with his compatriot Alvaro Morata in one of the other big-money moves of the summer.

    Morata will be given time to slot into the squad and adjust, but the plan is clearly for him to become Chelsea’s main man up front.

    The question will be how he reacts to this pressure as he has never before been centre-stage.

  5. 5 Ederson (Man City, GK, 5.5m)

    Manchester City desperately needed a goalkeeper after Claudio Bravo’s disastrous first season in the Premier League, and they rectified that straight away this summer.

    Ostensibly, Ederson ticks all the right boxes for Pep Guardiola; good with his feet, athletic and unafraid to come off his line and claim the ball.

    He may be the most expensive goalkeeper ever, but if he stays at City for a decade (he's only 23), then he will be worth it.

I'm football mad and I have been bitten by the FPL bug and can't get enough of it! I've finished inside the top 40k twice and managed to finish in the top 20k in 2014/15. I'm also a fan of draft FPL leagues, I've played in Togga leagues for 4 years and I'm looking forward to the new FPL draft leagues!

I'm a West Ham fan (obvious glutton for punishment) and so excited by the prospect of the new season with our summer signings!

    Nice article, albeit obvious. I think Morata is probably a better talent than Lacazette but Lacazette’s impact should be much greater for Arsenal given their lack of firepower outside Sanchez and given their previous options at ST outside Sanchez. Ederson will probably turn out to be overrated. He fits Pep’s system but I dont know if he’s stopping that many more goals than Bravo or Willy. Bernado Silva and Salah both add much needed depth to already great attacking options and will force both managers into making tough decisions early on. Some egos are bound to be deflated among the core of attackers on both teams.
