Benjamin Stambouli    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Stambouli signed a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday after transferring from Tottenham.

Fantasy Analysis

Stambouli was with Spurs for only a single season after transferring from Marseille last summer, but he found playing time very hard to come by, and he now returns to France for a club with Champions League football.
Claudio Beauvue    F    Lyon
Beauvue recently completed a transfer from Guingamp to Lyon, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Beauvue burst onto the scene last season with 27 goals and four assists across 44 total appearances for Guingamp. 17 of those scores came in Ligue 1 play, which should offer Lyon another promising attacking talent to go with the likes of Alex Lacazette, Nabil Fekir and Clinton N'Jie. However, should Lyon offload someone like Lacazette, Beauvue would figure to be asked to occupy a larger role, thus improving his fantasy outlook.
Javier Manquillo    D    Marseille
Liverpool and Atletico Madrid have mutually agreed to terminate Manquillo's two-year loan, sending him back to the La Liga outfit, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Manquillo found playing time very tough to come by last season, and the summer addition of Nathaniel Clyne only pushes him further down the depth chart. It sounds likely that he will be sent out on a new loan elsewhere, given that he isn't likely to play much for Atletico Madrid anyway.
Florian Thauvin    M    Marseille
Marseille have rejected a bid of almost 11 million for Thauvin from Newcastle, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Newcastle was willing to pay the amount as a lump sum, but the highly rated midfielder was deemed more valuable than the offer. Marseille originally paid 12 million to Lille for the player.
Alexandre Lacazette    F/M    Lyon
Lacazette exploded onto the scene this season for Lyon, totaling 31 goals and six assists in all competitions.

Fantasy Analysis

The 24-year-old was productive throughout the campaign and even scored 10 times during a six-game goal streak at one point en route to the Golden Boot. A 17-goal season in 2013-14 put the Frenchman on the radar, but he emerged as a top attacking talent this year, as only Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo scored more goals in a major European league. Lacazette is being chased by several major clubs at the moment, and Lyon may find if difficult to keep hold of him despite their strong desire to do so.
Gregory Van Der Wiel    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain defender Van der Wiel has been offered to Manchester United after the club missed out on signing Dani Alves from Barcelona, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

The defender has one year left on his current contract, and Roma is also reportedly interested in a potential transfer.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic enjoyed another stellar season for PSG, netting 28 goals with six assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

Fantasy Analysis

The 33-year-old Swede showed that he can still handle the wear and tear of a long season at his advancing age, as he finished the year on a torrid stretch of 12 goals and 4 assists in his final eight league matches. Several top Premier League clubs have expressed mild interest in Ibra if he can be had at a discount rate, but a move abroad doesn't seem imminent.
Anthony Martial    F    Monaco
Martial has drawn interest from Tottenham, who are expected to open transfer talks with Monaco over the forward this week, the Mirror reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Martial is just 19 years old, but is expected to command a fee around 18 million after leading Monaco with 12 goals across all competitions this season. One of France's most highly regarded prospects, Martial's potential addition could bolster Tottenham's strikeforce behind Harry Kane, especially considering the uncertain futures of Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor.
Javier Manquillo    D    Marseille
Manquillo notched two clean sheets during his 10 Premier League outings with Liverpool over the course of the 2014-15 season.

Fantasy Analysis

At just 21-years-old, Manquillo was utilized at the onset of the season but his deployment tapered off in the latter half of the year. His unsuccessful acclimation under manager Brendan Rodgers poses problems for his viability next season as it remains unclear if he'll be given another chance to perform in a starter's role.
Ben Yedder    F    Toulouse
Yedder scored 15 goals and registered three assists in 37 appearances for Toulouse this season, marking his third straight campaign with double-digit goals.

Fantasy Analysis

The 24-year-old former futsal star has blossomed into a dangerous attacker in Ligue 1 and tested defenses all season with his speed and trickery. Several major sides from around Europe are reportedly after the Frenchman, and he could very well leave the club this summer.
