There Are Some Brilliant Players Available As Free Agents This Summer
Clubs across the whole of Europe could pick up some nice new additions for their squads on a free transfer this summer.
June has finally come to an end and it means that a number of players have had their contracts come to an end or clubs haven't renewed their deals.
Thanks to Transfermarkt, here are some of the top players that clubs should be keeping an eye out for.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær wanted to keep hold of Ander Herrera at Manchester United, but the Spanish midfielder decided not to renew his contract with the club.
But the Spain international, 29, can put in some solid performances in midfield and could easily be an important first-team player for many sides.
Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites to land the former Athletic Bilbao man and it would only add some extra depth to Thomas Tuchel's squad.
He might be a loose cannon, but Mario Balotelli can easily pull moments of magic straight out of the bag.
The Italian striker, 28, spent the second half of last season at Marseille and scored eight times in 12 appearances.
Balotelli has been linked with a return to Serie A in recent weeks and the former Manchester City and Inter Milan striker can be a solid choice in leading the attack.
Arjen Robben might be 35, but the Dutch veteran continues to show why he can never be counted out.
And every football fan will know how deadly he was during his time at Bayern Munich, cutting in from the right and taking powerful shots on his left foot.

Speaking of Bayern Munich, one team could be fortunate to snap up both Robben and Franck Ribéry for their wings.
The Frenchman, 36, isn't getting any younger and wouldn't be featuring in every match, but he would bring that same veteran experience that Robben does to a team.
And he has been linked with Sheffield United, who have been promoted to the Premier League for the 2019-20 season.
Roberto Firmino might have led the Liverpool frontline for most of last season, but Daniel Sturridge proved that he could be a superb back-up option.
The English striker, 29, is still young and could thrive as the lone striker for many sides.
And a Premier League club could make a move for the ex-Manchester City and Chelsea man for his experience alone in the English league.
Just like Sturridge, Danny Welbeck has also become a free agent this summer.
The 28-year-old endured tough times at both Arsenal and Manchester United, but he could be a fantastic signing if he manages to stay fit.
And there could also be room for a club to snap up both Sturridge and Welbeck and play the pair together in the attack. Now that's an interesting thought, right?
Some honourable mentions: Alberto Moreno, Gary Cahill, Andy Carroll, Hatem Ben Arfa, Samir Nasri and Wilfried Bony.
