Premier League: Five essential tips for your fantasy team

The new Premier League season is underway but the transfer window seems to be the main attraction for many as Manchester United are likely to dominate the headlines in recent weeks after losing to Brighton and Erik ten Hag is desperate for reinforcements. Realistic targets include Adrien Rabiot and Marko Arnautovic, while Guido Rodriguez and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic continue to be linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Then there’s the saga of Frenkie de Jong and his future at the Camp Nou that continues, and Manchester United and Chelsea remain heavily linked with the Barcelona midfielder. The Spaniards want Bernardo Silva to replace him if a deal with Man City goes through, while Marcos Alonso could join Catalonia from Stamford Bridge.

Elsewhere, Thomas Tuchel has hinted at the need for more players despite a win at Everton, with Wesley Fofana linked with the Blues. Fofana’s departure could give Leicester ammunition for signing players as the Foxes are the only club in Europe’s top five leagues without a new player to have already lost goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and midfielder James Maddison is wanted from Newcastle, meaning Brendan Rodgers could be busy after watching his side go 2-0 up against Brentford to open the season.

RB Leipzig beat Manchester United to Benjamin Sesko transfer

RB Leipzig have confirmed the signing of Benjamin Sesko from Red Bull Salzburg in the latest high-profile deal between the sister clubs.

The 19-year-old Slovenia international will stay with the Austrian champions this season before starting a five-year deal with Leipzig next summer.

“Benjamin Sesko is one of the best young talents in Europe and has a lot of potential,” said Leipzig’s technical director, Christopher Vivell, in a club statement.

Sesko joins a prominent list of deals between the two clubs, both owned by drinks company Red Bull until 2017 when Uefa intervened over integrity concerns in the Champions League.

Chelsea and Leicester split £10m valuation of Wesley Fofana

Chelsea are currently £10m behind Leicester City’s valuation for Wesley Fofana as the London club prepare another offer that could trigger their busiest period of the window. The Stamford Bridge hierarchy are also working on deals for Frenkie de Jong and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

While Leicester’s public stance says neither Fofana nor James Maddison are for sale, sources close to the situation insist the club’s financial circumstances – which the Thai owners’ duty-free deal has suffered through two years of the pandemic – are likely to have to go, albeit at high prices.

The sentiment in the market is that Fofana is available for £80m and Maddison for £60m. Newcastle United are slightly behind at the latter price and Leicester would be more interested in keeping the playmaker.
