The 2019 bargain goalscorer guide in fantasy football

December 20, 2019

The rumor that Manchester United is getting ready to spend £76m on striker Erling Braut Haaland is telling of where the modern transfer market is in 2019. Then again, Jadon Sancho, who has certainly proven his worth in the Bundesliga, is hounded by top clubs across the world ready to spend big on the player. Some estimate his transfer worth at a whopping $222 million. That’s what a goalscorer usually costs nowadays.

But, rare exceptions do exist. Today we look at the bargain goalscorers. Here are free FootballCoin players that have put in the goals and brought their managers’ plenty of points. How many of them did you have on your teams. 

Victor Osimhen

He’s the 20-year-old striker from Lille who has netted 9 goals this season. The Nigerian is represented by a free FootballCoin card and has shown himself to be a true goalscorer. A bright future looks to await him, with some believing he will take on the goalscorer challenge into the Premier League next. It’s a move that many other top Ligue 1 strikers have opted for in recent years.

James Maddison

Little needs to be told about young upstart James Maddison which hasn’t been covered already. Originally a player Leicester City were happy to loan out in hopes of helping him gather experience, Maddison has shown to be one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League. His excellent form has brought the Foxes back into title contention. Maddison, for the moment, is a free EPL card and one of the most selected players by fantasy football managers. Premier League goal scorers have rarely started their careers stronger!

Aleksandr Sobolev

Flying just below the radar of most football fans is Sobolev, an excellent striker in the Russian Premier League. The forward has netted 10 goals, half of the entire goal tally of Krylya Sovetov Samara. Clearly a great addition to your fantasy draft and a future goalscorer for the Russian national team.

Domenico Berardi

This is how you build a resume as a Serie A goal scorer. Play for a relative modest side in the Italian first tier. Score goals against some of the world’s best defenders. Become the envy of clubs across the country. Become part of a bidding war where the objective is your transfer. This is exactly what Domenico Berardi has done, managing 8 goals in 13 appearances for Sassuolo. His frequent top performances make him a 3* rated player in FootballCoin, available at a bargain price of 2800 XFC.

Eldor Shomurodov 

Like his Russian Premier League colleague Sobolev, Shomurodov has represented an excellent surprise this season. He’s scored 10 goals, meaning he’s managing a goal every other game. The Uzbekistan striker has been vital in helping FC Rostov climb to 3rd place in the league. Should he continue the same way, Shomurodov has every reason of hoping to become the highest goalscorer in the Russian Premier League.
