Transfers - FPL Watchlist

Here is WFC_17’s wrap-up of the EPL transfer window, with the major and key transfer activities for each club so far, highlighting where players have come from, their position, some key stats and the FPL Potential Rating for each player. An in depth analysis is presented for players with high FPL potential, that should be considered for team selections. Players will continually be added to the list as more transfers occur before the window closes and the season begins.


Alexandre Lacazette (€53mill)

Position  Striker
Age - 26
Previous Clubs/ (Appearances)  Lyon (242)
Career Goals - 114
Career Assists 26
FPL Potential Rating  10/10

Bags of quality in front of goal. A big price tag from the recent transfer will not diminish the Frenchman’s scoring feats. Having on average for the last 3 Ligue 1 seasons – 2.85 shots on target per game and an outstanding 1.76 successful take-ons per game over the same period, Lacazette will benefit majorly from the service of Mesut Özil and Aaron Ramsey. This benefit will move onto FPL mangers who will see big points return tallies should they own the £10.5 striker. An Arsenal goal explosion could occur if both Lacazette and Alexis Sánchez compete with each other for golden boot honours.
