Premier League Clubs Could Still Land Some Great Free Agents After Transfer Window Closed
Premier League clubs could still land some superb free-agent signings after the transfer window closed.
According to Deloitte, teams in England's top domestic league took their summer spending up to £1.41bn by the time that the window shut at 5pm UK time on Thursday.
But there will still be some sides looking to bolster their squad depth after the Premier League season kicks off on Friday.
When it comes to attacking options, there is no shortage of free agents that could improve different sides.
Ex-Manchester City and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, 28, has not signed for any clubs this summer.
The Italian left Marseille at the end of the season and has been linked with Brazilian side Flamengo, West Ham United and Fiorentina.
Other alternatives include ex-Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge, former Swansea City forward Wilfried Bony and former Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente.
Clubs only need to look at wingers to see Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery is a free agent.
While Arjen Robben announced his retirement from football last season, the Frenchman is not ready to hang up his boots and is waiting for the right club to come along.
And there are plenty of other wingers for clubs to keep an eye out for, including Hatem Ben Arfa and Lazar Markovic.
It would be easy to look at the frontline alone, but midfield is another area where many clubs could strengthen.
Ex-Juventus star Claudio Marchisio, Yohan Cabaye and Joe Ledley could all be snapped up on a free to make a sold midfield trio.
That's not to mention the likes of James Morrison, Jack Rodwell and Lee Cattermole could be eyed up as viable midfield options, too.
Joining Martin Olsson, Martin Skrtel and Danny Simpson as free-agent defenders is former Real Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao.
And if a Premier League club is looking for experience between the sticks, then they can look no further to the likes of Michel Vorm or Julian Speroni.
