The Scout looks at the Fantasy Premier League potential of the summer signings ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Neco Williams (NFO) £4.0m

Williams’ move from Liverpool to Nottingham Forest looks set to hand managers a rare £4.0m starter in Fantasy this season. 

TV Info

The 21-year-old impressed during a loan spell with Fulham in the Championship last term, producing two goals and two assists in 14 outings as a full-back.

Williams now seems likely to secure a role as an attacking wing-back for Steve Cooper’s side this season.

His ultra-low cost of £4.0m could prove exceptional value in Fantasy and can be crucial in helping managers free up funds for their big-hitters.

Elsewhere, Luis Sinisterra (£6.5m) arrives at Leeds United on the back of the most productive season of his career. 

The Colombian scored 24 goals and also supplied 14 assists in 49 appearances across all competitions for Feyenoord in 2021/22.

If his fellow winger Raphinha (£7.0m) departs Elland Road, Sinisterra can emerge as a big influence early on this term.

Just one of Leeds’ first seven matches scores more than two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).

Wait for Aribo

Southampton’s new winger Joe Aribo (£5.5m) also enjoyed a fine season for Rangers last term.

The Nigerian international combined nine goals with eight assists in 46 appearances in all competitions, highlighting his all-round style of play.

Nonetheless, a tough opening run of opponents suggests managers can afford to wait until Saints’ schedule becomes more favourable in Gameweek 6, before considering their key players.
