There are a lot of new players that have arrived in the league due to the winter window.

The highly competitive fantasy league competition Fantasy Premier League (FPL) is set to get even more challenging. With the arrival of fabulous players in the Premier League thanks to the January transfer window, the FPL managers will have their thinking caps on while making transfers and subsequent team selections.

Individuals like Cody Gakpo, Mykhailo Mudryk and more are already popular picks. The second half of the season will see clubs push harder to achieve their seasonal objectives. This is the time when newly signed players, permanent or loan transfers, will play important roles.

As FPL managers work on their strategies, here is a look at the top 10 winter transfers to target in Fantasy Premier League in the forthcoming game weeks:

10. Pablo Sarabia - Wolves - MID - £5.5

Pablo Sarabia joined Wolves in January from French giants Paris Saint-Germain for a £4.4m fee. The 30-year-old will be the creative outlet in the team and hope to contribute with attacking returns. At £5.5m in FPL, he is not an expensive option and could be a decent differential.

9. Arnaut Danjuma - Tottenham Hotspurs - MID - £6.5

Arnaut Danjuma joins Tottenham Hotspur from Villareal on loan. The winger is a promising attacking prospect who has scored a goal in his first appearance for THFC in the FA Cup. His price tag reads £6.5m in FPL and the managers could think of him among the players who came to the PL in January.

8. Benoit Badiashile - Chelsea - DEF - £5.0

Chelsea has made several transfers in January to push for a top-four finish in the Premier League. Their transfer activity gives FPL managers a lot of new players to choose from. One of the newcomers to the league is Benoit Badiashile. The centre-back already has 15 points from the first two games for the Blues.

7. Wout Weghorst - Manchester United - FWD - £6.0

Manchester United desperately wanted a striker after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. Wout Weghorst joins the club on loan and will certainly play a major role in the forthcoming games. He will likely start for MUFC with Antony Martial working towards regaining full fitness. The former Burnley FC striker has a price tag of £6.0m, making him a fantastic cheap option upfront in Fantasy Premier League.

6. Joao Felix - Chelsea - FWD - £7.5

Joao Felix’s life at Chelsea started on a difficult note after the attacker picked up a direct red card in his debut against Fulham. Having said that, the forward will be an important player for CFC in upcoming games after serving his three-match suspension. He is one of the popular targets and has a price tag of £7.5m only in FPL.

5. Leandro Trossard - Arsenal - MID - £6.7

Leandro Trossard joined Arsenal during the winter transfer window after his relationship with Brighton & Hove Albion became sour. The attacking midfielder played an important role instantly, helping the Gunners win over Manchester United. His price tag of £6.7m makes him a decent option and he has already collected 84 points for the ongoing 2022-23 season.

4. Marcel Sabitzer - Manchester United - MID - £5.0

Marcel Sabitzer is an excellent addition to Manchester United’s squad. He arrived on loan from FC Bayern Munich on the deadline day as a last-minute replacement for Christian Eriksen who is out with an ankle injury for almost the whole of the remainder of the season. The former RB Leipzig player will take his place in MUFC’s starting lineup and is a decent target with a £5.0m price tag in FPL.

3. Pedro Porro - Tottenham Hotspurs - DEF - £5.0

Pedro Porro was high on Tottenham Hotspur’s wishlist during the winter transfer window. The full-back joins the Spurs on loan. He is an attack-minded full-back who already has 11 assists in the season. At £5.00m, he may be on the expensive side as a FPL target but could pay dividends in the long run.

2. Cody Gakpo - Liverpool - MID - £7.8

Liverpool officially signed Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven on 1 January 2023 for a €42.00m fee. He has 13 goals and 17 assists in all competitions in the 2022-23 season at the club level. Eventually, Gakpo will start making attacking returns for the Reds. He is worth £7.8m in FPL which is not too expensive considering he will start regularly in the Premier League.

1. Mykhailo Mudryk - Chelsea - MID - £7.0

Mykhailo Mudryk is another Chelsea player who arrived in the winter transfer window and can be crucial for them in the remaining part of the campaign. The exceedingly quick winger is priced at £7.0m which makes him a good option to consider in FPL.
