Gylfi Sigurdsson was signed on loan by Brendan Rodgers is the January transfer window and settled immediately into the Swansea side, proving to be a key player for the second half of the season. Entering the Fantasy Premier League game at £5.0m, Siggy was a budget midfield option who excelled beyond his price. In just 18 games, he racked up an impressive 102 points including 4 double-figure hauls. Playing in an attacking midfield spot, Siggy was able to find the net on 7 occasions, set up 5 goals for fellow team-mates and was awarded 11 bonus points in the second half of the season.
Here is a video to remind you of Sigurdsson’s goals from last season:
At just 22 years of age, it’s clear that Sigurdsson has a lot more to offer and if he follows on from last season, Spurs could have a potential star on their books. It’s unclear how Villas-Boas will fit him into the side next season and a lot will depend on Van der Vaart’s fitness and form. Given his performances last season and the fact that he is part of a team challenging for the Champions League, Sigurdsson will be considerably more than his budget price but should remain around the £7.0-£8.0m mark. It might be a slight risk bringing him in for the start of the season and the more cautious fantasy football managers may wish to wait and see whether he is given a starting spot for AVB.
Despite the unknown going into this season, Sigurdsson’s quality should see him play a strong role in Spurs’ season and there is no doubting that given the opportunity, he could rack up the fantasy points for you.
