1. Leroy Fer
Leroy Fer has been having a strong season for Swansea. He was an early season goal getter, scoring three times in the first five matches. Labeled as more of a ball winner, Fer has scored just three times since September, adding two assist as well. His contribution to the team has been strong nonetheless, cementing his spot in the starting 11.
Fer does has a slight discipline problem this season. He leads Swansea with nine yellow cards, tied for second most in the Premier League overall. Despite this problem, which could be fixed, Fer plays a vital role in the midfield. His towering 6’1″ frame makes him both a threat offensively and an asset defensively. Striker Fernando Llorente does most of the hold up play up top, so it is nice having a player of Fer’s size to lock down the middle of the pitch.
He may not be the flashiest of players, but Fer would be a great player for many clubs. At 27 years old, Fer still has a good deal of football left in him. A team like West Ham could benefit from Fer. Sticking him next to Kouyate would make a great partnership that would boss the midfield and add a physical advantage to the Hammers’ game.
