Falcao    F    Chelsea
Falcao officially joined Chelsea on Friday on a season-long loan from Monaco.

Fantasy Analysis

Falcao spent last season on loan at Manchester United and managed only four goals while playing minimally. He was widely believed to be joining Chelsea this season in the hope that he can resurrect his career and potentially land a large transfer fee for Monaco, who has no interest in paying his exorbitant salary. He's unlikely to start at Chelsea ahead of Diego Costa in Premier League matches, though manager Jose Mourinho could start the two of them together, as they did briefly at Atletico Madrid.
Chicharito    F    Manchester United
Chicharito suffered a broken collarbone Wednesday while playing for Mexico, and he is expected to be out for at least three to four weeks, The Guardian reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Chicharito spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, and Manchester United have been quite public that they have no interest in keeping him at Old Trafford next season. The injury also likely keeps him out of the Gold Cup.
Carl Jenkinson    D    Arsenal
West Ham is working to convince Arsenal to allow Jenkinson to return on another loan deal in the coming season, according to the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

The defender spent last season on loan with West Ham, but Arsenal said they would not be selling him on a permanent deal. West Ham will try for the next best option of bringing him back for another loan term this summer.
Eder    F    Swansea City
Eder signed a three-year contract with Swansea City on Wednesday after transferring from Braga.

Fantasy Analysis

Eder, who scored 10 goals in 29 league appearances last season, will potentially compete for playing time with Bafetimbi Gomis, though there is a small possibility the two could line up together. The Swans also added Andre Ayew earlier this summer to boast a rather solid attacking force heading into the upcoming Premier League season.
Sebastian Coates    D    Sunderland
Coates signed a four-year contract with Sunderland on Wednesday after transferring from Liverpool.

Fantasy Analysis

Coates spent last season on loan with Sunderland and was a solid contributor toward the end of last season after Dick Advocaat took over the managerial reigns. He's a central defender, so his fantasy upside is a bit limited in most formats, particularly if Sunderland play as poorly defensively as they did last year.
Sylvain Distin    D    AFC Bournemouth
Distin officially signed with AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday after a free transfer from Everton.

Fantasy Analysis

Distin lost his starting job to John Stones last weekend and Everton had little reason to keep him around. He'll be a solid veteran contributor, though a promoted side is usually not a great place to find a good fantasy centerback.
Nathaniel Clyne    D    Liverpool
Clyne officially signed with Liverpool on Wednesday after transferring from Southampton.

Fantasy Analysis

Clyne was an excellent fantasy option last season, combining a relatively high number of crosses and clean sheets. He'll likely continue to be a highly sought-after fullback for fantasy purposes, though he may see a drop in shutouts moving to Anfield.
Angel Di Maria    M    Manchester United
Di Maria scored twice on Tuesday in Argentina's Copa America win over Paraguay to advance to the tournament's final.

Fantasy Analysis

Di Maria and Lionel Messi linked up to help the team to a 6-1 win in the match that also saw fellow Manchester United player Marcos Rojo find the scoresheet.
Phil Jones    D    Manchester United
Jones signed a new four-year contract with Manchester United on Monday, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

The defender joined United from Blackburn in 2011, and was preparing to begin the final year of his contract. He will now be with the club until 2019 with an option for a further year.
Asmir Begovic    G    Stoke City
Chelsea have started discussions about a transfer move for Begovic with Stoke, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Chelsea stalwart Petr Cech moved to Arsenal and now the London side is looking to backfill the position. Manager Jose Mourinho has set his sights on Begovic as that person.
