The five best transfers to make for December

The Premier League comes thick and fast in December.

The ‘top six’ could play up to seven games between now and January so use your new transfers wisely.

So you can concentrate on surviving the Christmas party season, here’s five players who could star in December.


SIGN UP – WIN £5k BY PLAYING DREAM TEAM WEEKENDER THIS WEEKEND


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Arsenal

Over 70% of you don’t have the Arsenal hitman in your team and he’s the leading goalscorer in the league!

Aubameyang is £2.3m cheaper than Harry Kane and although he currently has 28 less points, December could be a great month for Arsenal.

Their next five games see them face three sides in 17th, 18th and 19th, Qarabag in the Europa League and Spurs in the EFL Cup.

Serious chances for Aubameyang to fill his boots.

Leroy Sane – Man City

His early season troubles are firmly behind him and Sane is racking up points for fun these days.

He’s pulled in an 8.4 Whoscored.com rating in his last three games and the German is almost guaranteed to get you the three points for ratings above 7.

City could whizz through December and at £4.8m you won’t find a more dangerous midfielder in the league right now.

Only 14.6% of managers have him so there’s a chance to get ahead of the competition here too.

Harry Kane – Tottenham

Kane has been ominously creeping up on Eden Hazard at the top of the Dream Team points rankings… and now he’s finally overtaken him.

The Spurs hitman’s brilliant recent form means his price is now £8.1m, easily the most expensive player on the game.

Spurs play in three competitions in December and Kane LOVES scoring at Christmas, grabbing eight in six games over the festive period last year.

Matt Doherty – Wolves

Here’s a man who continues to upset the form book.

He’s registered double figures on three occasions this term and scored at least five points in six of his last nine games.

Wolves play Newcastle, Bournemouth and Fulham among others between now and the beginning of January so there’s some real clean sheet potential.

He’ll set you back just £2.5m and only 6.6% of managers have selected him… Need I say more?

Ederson – Man City

Remember in fantasy football, clean sheets can be just as valuable as attacking points.

Only a quarter of players have Ederson in their team but he could conceivably end this month with six clean sheets from seven games.

The defence in front of him looks rock solid this season and although he’s the most expensive keeper on the game at £4.5m, he could really show his worth this month.

And there’s always the possibility he’ll pick up an assist too.
