FPL GW21 Transfer Tips: Who Are the Best Picks?

Navigating through AFCON, Asian Cup and recent injury updates, transfers are crucial this GW.

GW21 poses a dilemma for managers and this situation could result in multiple hits or Wildcard utilization.

There are promising transfer options worth considering for your FPL squad before GW21. Let’s look at them in detail.

Bukayo Saka

Saka has been a standout performer for Arsenal this season.

Despite drawing a blank in 4 of his last 5 games, he has tallied an impressive 14 G/A this season with an xGI of 13.2.

Arsenal has faced a slight dip in their form recently, however Saka remains their primary goal threat, including penalty duties.

Also, Arsenal has favorable fixtures ahead against Crystal Palace (H) and Nottingham Forest (a) in the next two GWs.

Diogo Jota

Recently coming back from injury, Jota has shown immediate impact, 3 G/A in barely any playing time in the past two matches.

The key consideration with Jota remains his playing time. With Salah’s absence and his return to his full fitness, it won’t be too long before he starts again.

Our Fantasy Premier League team news currently has him at 80% to start.

When fit, Jota has always been a desirable FPL asset providing consistent returns.

Pervis Estupinan

Estupinan’s return to the Brighton side after an injury was impactful, showcasing his attacking prowess with a goal against Spurs.

Despite defensive woes, Estupinan’s attacking threat remains noteworthy. He has contributed to 5 G/A in 8 appearances this season.

He’s also a very cost-effective addition to your defense coming in at just £4.9m.

Brighton’s upcoming fixtures against Wolves, Luton, and Crystal Palace further enhance Estupinan’s appeal.

Brighton rank 3rd in clean sheet odds over the next 3 GWs based on our data, trailing only Man City and Arsenal.

Joao Pedro

Pedro is a budget-friendly option at £5.4m and holds significant potential with Brighton’s favorable upcoming fixtures.

Notably, the team doesn’t resume their Europa League campaign until early March, right before GW28.

Pedro is also on penalty duty when he’s on the field but is inconsistent with his minutes.

Pascal Gross (£6.4m) and Facundo Buonanotte (£4.7m) are also worth considering for the promising fixture schedule ahead.


Richarlison has showcased a consistent knack for goals in the past few GWs.

He has scored 5 goals in the last 5 GWs while averaging only 70 minutes.

His role as a striker could boost his chances, especially with Son’s absence.

There’s also a possibility he might be on penalty duties while Son is away.

Furthermore, with Son’s absence, there’s a likelihood of him logging more minutes in the upcoming fixtures.
