In the mean time, we’ve been taking a good look back at some of the best signings that graced the Premier League last summer.
Using our Dream Team metrics and WhoScored’s rating system, we’ve established the top five best bargain buys you could’ve snapped up this season.
5 Pascal Gross – £3.6m
There’s been nothing gross about Brighton’s first season back in the top-flight, with Chris Hughton’s side going against the odds to stave off relegation.
And a big thanks goes to their midfield wizard Gross, who finished the season with 112 points and a tasty WhoScored rating of 6.81.
Seven goals, eight assists and three Star Man awards to his name, we can’t think of many other midfielders who were this consistent at such a low price.
4 Marcus Rashford – £2.6m
It’s been a bit of a hit and miss season for Man United’s boy wonder, but he’s proven to be a hit on Dream Team.
In fact, his points total of 150 is by-far the best of anyone else valued below £3.0m on the game.
3 Luka Milivojevic – £5.1m
Milivojevic has become a bit of a cult hero among Dream Team managers.
Having started the season priced at a measly £2.5m, the Serbian’s price soared as he became a consistent source of points.
He’s not bad from 12-yards out either, netting seven goals from the penalty spot this season.
2 Cesc Fabregas – £3.0m
He may have been left out of Spain’s World Cup squad, but Cesc still has a special place in our hearts.
Finishing up with a decent haul of 123 points – more than the likes of N’Golo Kante, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Emre Can – the Spaniard has also spent much of the season priced below the £3.0m grade.
A true bargain.
1 James Tarkowski – £3.8m
Several Burnley stars have been on our radar this season, with Nick Pope proving to be one of the best goalkeepers on Dream Team and Robbie Brady getting into everyone’s team before his season-ending injury.
But we’ve picked out Tarkowski, who became stalwart in our Dream Team line-up after a succession of standout performances in the Clarets back-line.
Ending up with a total of 118 points, we’re genuinely disappointed he didn’t get into Gareth Southgate’s final World Cup squad.
