I’m going to use my final two transfers today as we will lose them if they aren’t used.
I’m taking Alisson out despite his good start. He might drop in value and I think its a decent time to cash in on him. He’s currently 4.4m which compared to Ederson is overpriced. As I think both will score the same amount of points. The problem is, Ederson currently doesn’t have fixtures on his side. For a short term solution, I’m bringing in De Gea who should rise in value and does have good fixtures. I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t have these two transfers in hand but I think it could be a wise move considering I’m simply optimising the team at this stage.

My second transfer is to take out a player who has so far misfired. Moura started well but was benched at the weekend. It wouldn’t be the end of the world for me to hang onto him as I think he could do OK across the season in the lesser European competition but as I’ve got a transfer I’m going to move him on for someone more likely to pick up points in the short term. I’m going for the popular Benrahma, he’s started well and West Ham have Europa League fixtures in September.

This should set me up for September, where I’ll have funds in the bank to swap Son for Ronaldo and De Gea for Ederson (at some point). I’ll then still be in a good position with three transfers.
