Forward was involved in 50 per cent of Newcastle's goals when selected last season, says The Scout

The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League ahead of Friday's 18:30 BST deadline.

Callum Wilson (NEW) £7.5m

The forward can be found in just three per cent of squads for Newcastle United’s home match against Nottingham Forest

Wilson endured an injury-hit 2021/22, managing just 18 appearances. 

Yet he still had a huge impact for Newcastle when available. 

Wilson was involved in 50 per cent of their goals when selected, finishing as the club’s top scorer with eight strikes.


The 30-year-old also fares well when assessed against other players in his position in Fantasy last term.

His average of 174.1 minutes per goal ranked third among forwards with more than three goals.

Wilson warmed up for this weekend’s match against promoted Forest by scoring in Newcastle’s final friendly, a 2-1 home victory over Athletic Bilbao.

Forest, meanwhile, have struggled in defence over the summer, conceding in each of their last four matches.

That suggests Wilson can make an immediate impact for Eddie Howe's side and get on the scoresheet on Saturday.
