Value Midfielders (Under 23+Under £1) 2019

As discussed in the previous post we have seen some significant rises in younger players lately and it is likely we will see many younger players continue to increase in price throughout 2020.

The 4 midfielders highlighted last week in the Value Youth Players £1-2 post have already increased an average of 10% which is a very significant rise in such a short space of time.


Midfielders


Midfielders have benefited the most from the changes in the PB matrix and the dividend increase. Therefore, many midfielders have increased considerably in price this season and finding value midfielders can prove very profitable.


Finding midfielders that have a lot of possession for strong teams and can contribute towards goals with key passes, crosses or can score goals themselves can prove very profitable. Midfielders that take set-pieces are often even more valuable.


Below are midfielders that are under 23 and currently under £1 which could be of strong value at their current prices for the below reasons and could increase throughout 2020. Many of the below players may not increase in price in the short term, unless their PB scores considerably improve or they are linked with a transfer away from their current team.
