Turkey striker is set to be a major mid-price option in Marco Silva's attacking system at Everton, says The Scout

The Scout looks at players expected to progress and make a big impact in 2018/19 Fantasy Premier League.

The striker will head into his second FPL campaign on the back of a strong finish.

After joining Everton from Besiktas in the January transfer window, Tosun started only two of his first six Gameweeks.

But he then secured a regular role to start each of the final 10 matches of the season.

More than goals

Tosun scored all of his five Everton goals and his nine bonus points in that period.

And his potential did not stop at goals. He also excelled as a provider in this spell.

His total of 13 chances created was more than any other FPL forward.

Matching Vardy

Overall, Tosun averaged 4.9 points per match (ppm) from Gameweek 29 onwards.

To put that into perspective, that matched Jamie Vardy’s ppm for the season.

The Leicester City striker finished on 183 points, second only to the 217 of Harry Kane among forwards.

Mins/shot on target 176  116.4
Mins/goal or assist 0  163

Marco Silva has been appointed Everton’s new manager.

He is known for his attacking football, which could get the best out of Tosun. 

Tosun scored or assisted 50 per cent of Everton's total team goals when selected last season.

The Turkey international was priced at £7.5m, which is likely to stay similar for the upcoming campaign.

It all means Tosun can become a vital mid-price option for Fantasy managers.
