Plenty of fantasy potential

Everton have been a little up and down at times this season while Ronald Koemann adjusts to the player he has inherited. Now into the second transfer window Koemanns influence can be seen in the type of players the club are mow signing.

Morgan Schneiderlin will have an immediate impact to the Everton first team and his protective midfield ball winning style should help Everton's ageing defence and their chances of clean sheets moving forward. Spider however while a good player isn't a player that excites us in the world of fantasy football. The second January signing however is one of those who very much will.

Ademola Lookman joined Everton from Charlton Athletic in an 11m deal. The youngster had been watched by a number of clubs and Everton have moved quickly and decisively before others either late in the window or the summer.

The 19 year old winger had 10 goals in 45 starts for Charlton and it his potential that the merseyside club have bought into. The England under 19 star is full of raw pace, apparent ball control, a fearless approach with the ball and watching this video can do one of the modern day rarities - shooting with both feet!

We love a player who shoots on site and with Koemann likely to set his side up to play on the counter attack, Looksman pace could be a real weapon in away games. Finally with the injury to Yannick Bolasie perhaps Lookman can help increase supply into the once again scoring Romelu Lukaku.

The young player got the dream debut on Sunday coming off then bench to score Everton's 4th in an amazing 4-0 home win over Manchester City. Take a look from the Toffess fans view.

I think they may get to like him.

Lookman will be one I will follow closely and lets hope Fantrax/FPL decide to class him in midfield as he will give us options over the second half of the season.
