Before this gameweek’s transfer window for Premier League Fantasy Football, we’re recommending three players for you to consider putting in your squad for this weekend. Do you have extra money in the bank, or is your star player not performing? Then get one of these guys in!
Memphis Depay – £8.5 million
Man United’s golden boy has not lit the Premier League alight yet, hence the lack of increase in transfer value, but his amazing brace midweek in United’s Champions League qualifier victory over Club Brugge could be what gets his Premier League campaign up and running. He’s not cheap, but his talent is undeniable, and if he hits form (which he could easily do against a demoralised Newcastle side this weekend), his transfer value is set to sky rocket. Don’t miss out!
Xherdan Shaqiri – £7 million
Stoke City pulled off arguably the signing of the Premier League this summer with the capture of Bayern Munich’s Xherdan Shaqiri. The powerful winger could not play Stoke’s second game of the season against Spurs, but he is set to start against Norwich. Shaqiri is a steal at just £7 million, and he should become the heartbeat of a team that now has more flair and skill on the ball thanks to Bojan, Afellay and Ouriachi.
In his second year at the club, Bafetimbi Gomis now seems to have embraced being the go-to guy up top for Swansea. Since Wilfried Bony joined Man City, Gomis has gone from strength to strength, and has started this campaign very well, scoring 2 in 2 games at Chelsea and at home versus Newcastle. His price has just begun to increase (£0.1 million up from last week’s £7 million value), so it’s better to get him in your team sooner rather than later, as he will surely play a big part if Swansea are to beat an out-of-sorts Sunderland side this weekend.
