The Scout looks at the Fantasy Premier League potential of the summer signings ahead of the 2019/20 season.

Leandro Trossard (BHA) £6.0m

The signing of Leandro Trossard can help lift Brighton & Hove Albion’s attacking prospects in Fantasy Premier League.

The Belgian winger arrives on the back of an outstanding season for Genk.

He scored 14 goals and supplied a further seven assists, helping them win the Jupiler League title.

And he also excelled in the UEFA Europa League, producing eight goals and three assists over 11 appearances.

Trossard is likely to play on the left behind a lone striker in new head coach Graham Potter's 4-2-3-1 formation.

His underlying statistics back up his all-round potential for FPL points.

He recorded 126 shots in the league last season, averaging a shot every 22.1 minutes.

By comparison, Brighton’s main goal threat, Glenn Murray (£6.0m), fired a shot every 46.5 minutes in 2018/19.

Brighton's first six Gameweeks

Trossard also created 72 scoring chances.

His average of 38.7 minutes per key pass almost matched the 35 minutes of Pascal Gross (£6.5m), who was Brighton’s top creator.

As a new arrival to the Premier League, Trossard may need time to settle.

However, the opening schedule gives the 24-year-old an immediate chance to make an impression.

Brighton host West Ham United, Southampton and Burnley in the first five Gameweeks and travel to Watford.

At £6.0m in FPL, if Trossard can find his feet quickly, he could offer goals and assists at a value price.
