The new Fantasy Serie A season is in full swing after three action-packed match-days and will soon return following the international break. As is the case every year, there are a few players that have flown under the radar and are available cheaply. Keep these bargains in mind ahead of the next gameweek!
Without further ado, here are five low-cost options that could take your Fantasy Serie A team to the next level:
1) Achraf Hakimi (Inter) 4.5 million euros.
The Moroccan international has hit the ground running since making the switch to Italy, registering one goal and two assists in his first two games. Hakimi is a match-made in heaven for Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 and should only improve as the season wears on. The former Borussia Dortmund man is available for a mere 4.5 million euros and should feature on any fantacalcio side. Considering he’s listed as a defender, Hakimi will even earn you points for clean sheets.
2) Edin Dzeko (Roma) 5.37 million euros.
The Roma man looked set to leave the capital-based club this summer but ultimately remained with Paulo Fonseca’s men. Dzeko hasn’t gotten off to the best start to the new season, spurning easy chances against Juventus and failing to find the back of the net in Roma’s last game. Regardless, the towering striker is always good value for money and should find himself back on the scoresheet sooner rather than later. At 5.37M, Dzeko represents great value and could give you the flexibility to bolster your side elsewhere.
3) Jeremie Boga (Sassuolo) 4.5 million euros.
The Ivorian winger has missed Sassuolo’s first two games through injury but should return to action shortly. The international break helps Boga in this respect, affording him a further two weeks to return to full fitness and should allow him to pick up from where he left off last season. Few wingers are as dangerous as Boga in Italy, as the Sassuolo man is regularly looking to take on his man. Factor in the deadly Domenico Berardi and Francesco Caputo and Boga should find assists easy to come by. It may be worth adding him to your bench temporarily, as his price will skyrocket once he’s back in the lineup.
4) Simon Kjaer (Milan) 4.5 million euros.
The former Palermo man has since established himself as one of Stefano Pioli’s pillars at the back, stepping up admirably in Alessio Romagnoli’s absence. Milan has picked up clean sheets in their first three games with Kjaer emerging as one of their leaders at the back. As Romagnoli nears his return to the pitch, Milan’s rearguard will only get better and allow Kjaer to play a complementary role once more. At 4.5 million euros, you would be foolish not to add the Danish international to your side.
5) Jose Callejon (Fiorentina) 4.5 million euros.
The veteran winger recently joined Fiorentina as a free agent and should slot in seamlessly from on the right-wing for the departed Federico Chiesa. Callejon will be raring to go after being released by Napoli and has demonstrated a keen eye for goal over his career. It hasn’t quite worked out for Beppe Iachini since assuming the reigns, but a front three of Franck Ribery, Christian Kouame, and Callejon, backed by Castrovilli, Pulgar, and Amrabat should be able to open up any side. Another 4.5 million euros bargain.
