Euro 2016 Fantasy Football: 10 bargain stars to sign!

first_img Mikael Lustig (Sweden) – €5.0m – The Celtic star is no stranger to goals from full-back. He netted five times for Celtic this season and grabbed one against Wales for his national team on Sunday. He’s worth a punt. Arkadiusz Milik (Poland) – €7m – Already dubbed the ‘New Lewandowski’ even though he’ll be playing just off him in France. The Pole has done well with Ajax, netting 21 goals in 31 Eredivisie games last season, while 10 in 24 international appearances is pretty handy too. 10 Andre Schurrle (Germany) – €7.5m – Unlikely to start, but the Wolfsburg man can still do damage, just like he did at the World Cup in Brazil where he ended up with three goals and an assist, despite playing only 244 minutes. He would allow you to spend more on your midfield/defence depending on the formation you choose. 10 10 Stephan Lichtsteiner (Switzerland) – €5.5m – Juventus star Lichtsteiner should be one of the first names on the team sheet for the Swiss. He’s capable of flying up the flank and aiding team-mate Xherdan Shaqiri so we wouldn’t be surprised to see him get a goal or an assist. Renato Sanches (Portugal) – €4.5m – If you want to have some expensive stars in your ranks, you’ll need at least one dirt cheap midfielder. After his stunning rise to the top this season, Sanches has earned a big-money move to Bayern Munich and a place at Euro 2016. Likely to be only a bench star, he’s a good option to pick up the odd point and may even find himself starting if he makes an impact. 10 10 Michael McGovern (Northern Ireland) – €4.5m – The Hamilton Academical star is one of the cheapest goalkeepers likely to start at Euro 2016 and only 1% of people have signed him up. He’s not a bad shout given he’s only conceded seven goals in 11 caps, so far. Pair that with the fact his nation only conceded eight in qualifying and the case is strong for his inclusion. Laurent Koscielny (France) – €6m – Arsenal’s centre-back is an automatic starter following injuries to some of Didier Deschamps’ squad. They’re in a decent group at Euro 2016, so we think a clean sheet or two isn’t out of the question. Olivier Giroud (France) – €8.5m – OK, the price might not seem a snip but the Arsenal man is likely to start for Didier Deschamps’ men and has hit seven goals for his nation since last September. We think he’s worth a shot. Emil Forsberg (Sweden) – €5.5m – A talented young prospect currently with RB Leipzig in Germany, he announced himself to British fans with his goal against Wales at the weekend. We fancy he could do similar in the group stages. 10 10 10 Jason Denayer (Belgium) – €4.5m – Click the right arrow above for more Euro 2016 Fantasy Football bargains… – Belgium have several superb centre-backs but lack good full-backs. A recent change by Marc Wilmots gives us the impression he will use the Manchester City youngster, who impressed on loan at Galatasaray last season. 10 10 Euro 2016 is finally here and so is the return of Fantasy Football.It’s been a tough couple of weeks since the end of the Premier League campaign but now we can pretend we’re Claudio Ranieri and manage our own teams.For the tournament, as always, UEFA are running their own game, which you can sign up to for free.And here at talkSPORT, after plenty of tinkering with our own teams, we’ve got some top tips for bargain players to put in your 15-man squads.Click the right arrow above to see who we think should make the cut…last_img
