FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 8 Movers & Shakers

-

With the Gameweek 8 just around the corner, we take a look at some players who are making waves in the FPL transfer market.

TRANSFERS IN

Heung-Min Son (£9.3m) – Tottenham
With Son having scored an incredible 43 points over the course of the last four gameweeks, many managers have seen fit to bring him into their respective squads. The South Korean has over 700k new owners ahead of Gameweek 8, which sees Tottenham face Luton at Kenilworth Road. Given the fact that captaincy options are slim on the ground this week, Son is likely to be captained by a large proportion of his FPL ownership.

Ollie Watkins (£8.0m) – Aston Villa
Trailing not far behind Son in terms of new owners is Ollie Watkins, and his popularity among FPL managers is hardly surprising given his incredible 23-point return against Brighton in Double Gameweek 7. The Aston Villa striker now features in over a quarter of all teams, and Gameweek 8 wildcarders in particular are making him one of the first names on their team sheets.

TRANSFERS OUT

Pervis Estupinan (£5.3m) – Brighton
Estupinan was a popular fantasy asset heading into Gameweek 1, and he fully justified that in the early weeks of the season by scoring 18 points in his first two games. However, the returns dried up from there on in and FPL bosses were starting to lose patience with Brighton full-back. Now that Roberto De Zerbi has announced that the Ecuadorian is going to be out for some time with an injury however, many more managers have shown him the exit door.

Marcus Rashford (£8.8m) – Man Utd
Things just aren’t right at Man Utd right now and FPL managers are starting to move away from their assets, particularly in midfield. While Rashford is still the Red Devils’ most highly-owned player in FPL, almost 450k managers have parted ways with him this week, and that comes off the back of three consecutive blanks. Rashford has failed to register an attacking return in five of his seven Premier League appearances this season, so his mass sales are fully justified.
