Fantasy Premier League

Martina adds to Fantasy options

Everton and Chelsea signings among eight new players available in FPL, but who should we be considering?

New Chelsea signing Tiemoue Bakayoko heads up a list of new arrivals in Fantasy Premier League, but it could be Everton's latest recruit who has the biggest impact.

Their move for defender Cuca Martina on a free transfer offers managers a fresh £4.5m option in Ronald Koeman's backline.

Reunited with his former manager at Southampton, Martina could be in line for starts at right-back.

With Seamus Coleman (6.5m) sidelined with a long-term injury, Martina will challenge Mason Holgate and Jonjoe Kenny (both £4.5m) for pitch time.

Everton's testing opening fixtures ensure that FPL managers can wait to see if Martina cements his place.

From Gameweek 6 onwards, he could offer real value over an improving schedule. 

Bakayoko arrives at a price of £5.0m.

The defensive midfielder produced only two goals and an assist in 32 league outings for Monaco last season.

But he may still draw the attention of FPL managers.

Team-mate N'Golo Kante (£5.0m) is owned by 13.6% of managers, making him the most popular Chelsea midfielder.

West Bromwich Albion's Ahmed Hegazi (£4.5m) is another new name to monitor.

The Egypt international has been signed on loan to compete with Jonny Evans and Gareth McAuley (both £5.0m) at centre-back.

Hegazi is the only member of Tony Pulis' defence to be priced at £4.5m, which could make him an option should he gain regular starts.

At 6ft 5in, he will pose a real threat as a target for West Brom's well-drilled set-pieces.
