Southampton's new record signing Sofiane Boufal is likely to cause major changes among Southampton's attacking unit.
The midfielder plays more forward than his position suggests, but is not a like for like replacement for Sadio Mane. Boufal tends to rely on his skill rather than his physical prowess to get past opposition players. He does however have a keen eye for goal, notching up 12 in 35 appearances last term. He plays on the left wing or in the no. 10 role and should replace Shane Long, Nathan Redmond or Charlie Austin for a place in the starting line up. Who he will replace is likely to be subject to many managerial experiments which will cause headaches for fantasy managers. Indeed, his arrival will create the chance for last weekend's goalscorer Jay Rodriguez to go out on loan. The Moroccan is currently recovering from a knee injury and is likely to be introduced to the team slowly to build both fitness and chemistry. Aug 29 - 9:43 AM
