Brewster (£3.16) aiming to impress during pre-season

With the talented young striker returning from injury towards the end of last season, Traders’ interest in Brewster has continued to rise.
A lot has been made about Liverpool’s lack of activity during the transfer window so far, with many interpreting it as a show of faith in the talented youngsters amongst the squad.
This faith could very well be shown in Brewster, who is rising heavily on the Index as hopes of more involvement for the striker increase.
Maxi Gomez (£1.33) enticing Traders ahead of summer transfer
This transfer has been a tricky one to follow for both West Ham fans and Traders.
After the rapid sale of Marko Arnautović, West Ham have upped their pursuit of the Celta Vigo striker and look to now be in the lead to secure his signature.
This transfer is definitely one to watch, but the prospect of Premier League football is already drawing in Traders, with a steady rise this morning.
Promising signs for Rabbi Matondo (£0.92) in pre-season
🏴 RABBI! 🏴
Scorer of our first goal of the season – da iawn, @rabbi_matondo 😏👏

Another extremely talented British winger displaying their skills abroad is Rabbi Matondo.
Already featuring for the Welsh senior side, and now getting his pre-season off to the best start possible, a rise in his value indicates Traders’ hopes he can be the next player to break through in the Bundesliga.
