The Scout assesses player prices in 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League and their implications.
Bukayo Saka will now cost £8.0m after recording his best-ever campaign in 2021/22 Fantasy.
The winger was the Gunners’ top-scoring player last term, amassing 179 points thanks to 11 goals and nine assists.
Saka has risen £1.5m in price from the start of last season and is currently the most expensive Arsenal player.
His fellow attacking midfielders Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli could prove strong value alternatives at just £6.5m and £6.0m respectively.
Playmaker Odegaard scored seven goals and supplied four assists in his first full Fantasy campaign last term.
Martinelli, meanwhile, combined six goals with seven assists in 2021/22. When selected, he was involved in 38 per cent of Arsenal’s goals, identical to Saka.
At the back, centre-back Gabriel offers major all-round potential at a cost of just £5.0m.
The Brazilian scored five goals last season, joint-top among defenders in Fantasy, as well as claiming 13 clean sheets.
Aaron Ramsdale also costs £5.0m, up just £0.5m from the previous campaign. The goalkeeper averaged 4.0 points per match last term.
Arsenal’s opening schedule suggests their players could immediately provide managers with value.
