Which summer signings should you consider for your FPL team?

-

The start of a new Premier League season often brings a bit of uncertainty around which new players will settle into life immediately at their new clubs, and who will take some time to adapt. Here at All Things FPL, we’ve identified those who we believe are viable fantasy assets at the start of the campaign.

Andre Onana (£5.0m) – Man Utd
Erik ten Hag has chosen former Ajax and Inter Milan goalkeeper Onana as his replacement for the departed and long-serving David de Gea, and FPL towers promptly handed him what seems like an extremely generous price-tag of £5.0m. Fantasy managers were quick to take note, with the Cameroonian international currently featuring in over a quarter of all teams. Man Utd kept 17 clean sheets in the Premier League last season – more than any other team – and Onana’s significant ownership will be hoping for more of the same this time around.

Moussa Diaby (£6.5m) – Aston Villa
Villa enjoyed an excellent 2022-23 campaign under the leadership of Unai Emery and they have sought to strengthen over the summer with some key acquisitions. One of those is the exciting Moussa Diaby, who is registered as a midfielder in FPL but is likely to play in an advanced position. The Frenchman has excelled for Bayer Leverkusen in recent seasons, reaching double figures for goals in each of his last three campaigns, and it is thought that he will compliment Ollie Watkins nicely in the Villa attack. A potential steal at £6.5m.

Joao Pedro (£5.5m) – Brighton
There’s always a pre-season bandwagon or two and new Brighton signing Joao Pedro certainly falls into that category. Signed from Championship club Watford, Pedro has made FPL managers sit up and take notice due the fact he apparently has penalty duty for the Seagulls. Having converted twice from the spot in pre-season friendlies, the Brazilian’s ownership has crept up into double figures with many looking at selecting him to partner Erling Haaland in their frontlines. At a mere £5.5m, he could potentially be the fantasy bargain of the season.
