Renovate your Fantasy Premier League squad with the help of these January wildcard midfielder bargains.
Featuring players from Chelsea, West Ham, Everton, Stoke, West Brom, Arsenal, Man City, Spurs, Crystal Palace and Southampton.
Willian, Chelsea – £7m
He’s been comfortably Chelsea’s most effective player so far this season, and he’s got the ability to up his goal-scoring stats to go with his regular supply of assists.
Dimitri Payet, West Ham – £7.6m
Back from an injury lay-off, and his price has dropped back down to more or less where it was when he first started making waves at the start of the season.
Dele Alli, Spurs – £5.3m
Going from strength to strength at high-flying Tottenham, with 4 goals and 3 assists in his last 9 games.
Marko Arnautović, Stoke – £6.6m
On penalties, and has a knack for scoring against the big boys – witness his goals against Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea and Spurs.
Yaya Touré, Man City – £8.6m
3 goals in his last 4 games – is the Ivorian back to his imperious, title-winning best of two seasons ago? If so, he’d be essential at that price.
Theo Walcott, Arsenal – £8.4m
Might well be switched back up front when Alexis Sánchez returns from injury, since it was such a productive combination earlier in the season.
Gerard Deulofeu, Everton – £6.3m
A regular supplier of assists for Romelu Lukaku, and got on the score sheet himself against Stoke recently.
Stéphane Sessègnon, West Brom – £5.1m
Scored the winner against Stoke last time out and could be a good ‘enabler’ at such a negligible price.
Sadio Mané, Southampton – £7.6m
Price has dropped from £8m after a poor spell of form, but if he can patch things up with Ronald Koeman and get back to firing on all cylinders then he’s got plenty of goals on him.
Yohan Cabaye, Crystal Palace – £6.5m
A set piece specialist with plenty of potential for goals and assists.
