Steven Fletcher    F    Marseille
Fletcher has joined Marseille on loan until the end of the season.

Fantasy Analysis

With Fabio Borini and Jermain Defoe dominating the starts up front, Fletcher will head to France with the hope of getting a more realistic chance at consistent first-team playing time.
Eder    F    Lille
Eder has joined Lille on loan until the end of the season.

Fantasy Analysis

Eder found playing time very hard to come by at Swansea, and he'll get an opportunity at more first-team opportunities in France.
Mathieu Debuchy    D    Bordeaux
Debuchy has been loaned to Bordeaux for the remainder of the season.

Fantasy Analysis

Debuchy lost the starting rightback spot to Hector Bellerin toward the end of last season and has barely sniffed the field this term. With an eye toward making the France squad for Euros this summer, he'll head to Ligue 1 for consistent playing time.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic took six shots, with three on target, and scored two goals during PSG's 2-0 win over Saint Etienne on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic now has 18 goals this season, six more than second-place Michy Batshuayi of Marseille, a lead that pales in comparison to PSG's 24-point lead over AS Monaco for first place in the Ligue 1 table.
Florian Thauvin    M    Marseille
Thauvin joined Marseille on loan until the end of the season Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Thauvin has made just 16 appearances in all competitions for Newcastle this season, scoring just a single goal, and he'll likely get a better opportunity at consistent playing time back in France.
Fabio Coentrao    D    Monaco
Coentrao won two tackles, secured an interception, put in two crosses, made one key pass and scored on his only shot in Sunday's 4-0 demolition of Toulouse.

Fantasy Analysis

The 27-year-old chipped in across the board in this dominant performance, factoring into his fourth goal in the last six league matches. Coentrao has been a major contributor at both ends of the pitch for Monaco this season, and his propensity for going forward makes him an even more intgriguing fantasy play when coupled with a clean sheet. Coentrao will look to continue his recent offensive uptick in Saturday's clash with Angers.
Fabio Coentrao    D    Monaco
Coentrao is making the most of limited play, scoring two goals and helping with two assists in just nine La Liga appearances.

Fantasy Analysis

After struggling to see the pitch last year with Real Madrid, Coentrao is capitalizing on his opportunity with Monaco. He was unable to garner a goal or assist last season, but has two of each while playing in less than half of Monaco's matches. If given more playing time in the second half of the season, Coentrao could have the best season of his career.
Rémy Cabella    M    Marseille
Cabella continues his struggles from last year, scoring just two goals on 18 shots in his 16 Ligue 1 appearances this season.

Fantasy Analysis

Cabella has struggled since scoring 14 goals in Ligue 1 play during the 2013-14 campaign. He managed just one goal in 21 matches last season for Newcastle, and those struggles have continued into this year. After not scoring a goal in the first 12 matches of the season, Cabella has come on strong of late scoring two goals in his last four Ligue 1 matches.
Lamine Sane    D    Bordeaux
Aston Villa is nearing completion of a loan move for Sane to help boost their defensive options, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Sane's potenial loan would be Remi Garde's first signing at the club. Bordeaux chairman Jean-Louis Triaud confirmed the discussions. Sane joined the French side in 2009.
Ricardo Carvalho    D    Monaco
Carvalho scored the equalizing goal for Monaco in their 2-2 draw with Ajaccio on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The goal was the first of the season for Carvalho, but it was also the first goal he has scored in Ligue 1. Carvalho is a regular starter for Monaco, but don't expect much from him since previously he had no goals and only one assist in his Ligue 1 career.
