The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisStambouli 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.
Fantasy AnalysisBeauvue 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.
Fantasy AnalysisManquillo 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.
Fantasy AnalysisNewcastle 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.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 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.
Fantasy AnalysisThe defender has one year left on his current contract, and Roma is also reportedly interested in a potential transfer.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 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.
Fantasy AnalysisMartial 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.
Fantasy AnalysisAt 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.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 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.
