Transfer Day Deadline

**This post only highlights the transfers completed on transfer deadline day**

Not going to bore you with the smaller transfers, so in this article I will highlight the key signings of the transfer window that I believe have what it takes to become decent FPL options.

Now let's discuss a couple of these players, who may become immediate hits in FPL.

Mesut Ozil- The German international has the most assists over the past 5 seasons in Europe's top 5 leagues, and also tops the assist chart in the Champions League over the past 3 seasons. Ozil may well be worth owning from an FPL point of view, with his huge assist potential and chipping in with the odd goal here and there. He will likely look to set up teammates Walcott and Giroud, who may shine with the former Real Madrid man pulling the strings.

Romelu Lukaku- After playing third fiddle to both Torres and Ba in Mourinho's pecking order, Lukaku looks to resume regular playing time, after confirming a season-long loan to Everton. Many fantasy managers were disappointed with Lukaku post-DGW, which saw his ownership fall from 8.0 to 7.4 in a mere 3 gameweeks. This may quickly change if Lukaku becomes Everton's number one striker, as the young Belgian netted 17 times in 2005 minutes last season on a loan spell for West Brom. Keep a close eye because at 7.4, Lukaku may free up some funds to improve your fantasy team elsewhere. 

Peter Odemwingie- Having scored 30 goals and notching 16 assists over the past 3 years, Odemwingie is very familiar with the Premier League. Leading the line for a newly promoted Cardiff, Odemwingie looks to replicate his previous FPL success. Priced at only 5.7, he is definitely one to monitor, as he is a great finisher when called upon.

Lastly, keep an eye on Mamadou Sakho, as he has been brought in by Liverpool. If you currently or plan on owning Kolo Toure, you might want to hold off, as Sakho looks to battle Toure for a spot in the starting XI.

Same goes for Manchester City CBs. With the arrival of Martin Demichelis, I would look to avoid Lescott and Nastasic, as the Argentine is ready to impress his new manager for a starting spot in City's back line.
