Gear up for the 2016-17 season with these lovingly scouted Fantasy Premier League bargain midfielders, here to help you fulfil your fantasy football potential.

Recommendations include players from Bournemouth, Southampton, Stoke, Swansea and Chelsea.

Max Gradel, Bournemouth – £5.5m

A winger with plenty of ability, Gradel returned from injury to impress at the back end of last season.

Similarly priced team-mate Josh King is also worth considering – he enjoyed a run of goals while playing in an attacking role last season.

Robert Snodgrass, Hull – £5.5m

Previously a nifty FPL pick during his Norwich days, Snodgrass is back in the top flight and still looks to have an eye for goal.

Andros Townsend, Crystal Palace – £6.5m

Ended last season in fine goal-scoring form for Newcastle. His team-mates Wilfried Zaha and Yohan Cabaye might also be worth a look at £5.5m and £6m respectively.

Bojan Krkić, Stoke City – £6m

Listed as a midfielder this season, the former Barcelona man could be involved in plenty of goals if he can stay fit.

Nathan Redmond, Southampton – £6m

Started last season on fire for Norwich, albeit his goal-scoring form faded away afterwards. Also keep an eye on Jay Rodriguez at £6.5m.

Kevin Mirallas, Everton – £6.5m

Looks to be back in favour under Ronald Koeman, and scored a superb free-kick in the friendly win over Barnsley as well as being on corner duty.

Gylfi Sigurðsson/André Ayew, Swansea – £7.5m

Their records speak for themselves.

Cesc Fàbregas, Chelsea – £7.5m

Could play further forward following the arrival of N’Golo Kanté, and if Antonio Conte can get him back to his best form then he could be bargain of the year.

Christian Eriksen, Spurs – £8.5m

Weighed in with an astonishing 16 assists last time out without repeating the goal-scoring exploits of his first campaign.

If he can wed these two traits then he could be the highest scorer in the game.

Anthony Martial, Man Utd – £9.5m

Listed as a midfielder this season – but will the 20-year-old be a regular starter under José Mourinho?
