Top five free agents still available for your clubs to sign

The 2021 summer transfer window is officially closed which means clubs can no longer sign players from one another.

However, there's no embargo on signing free agents and there are still so many useful players who are currently unattached and available to be signed.

Here are the top five free agents still looking for a new club.


Legendary French winger, Franck Ribery is one of the high-profile names still without a club after he was released by Fiorentina this summer.

The former French international who was one of the best players in the world while at Bayern Munich is now 38 years old and well past his prime.

However, his two-year stint at Fiorentina showed that he still has a lot to offer as he continues to attract interest from top-flight teams.

Lazio and Sampdoria were reportedly interested in his signature before but it now appears he could be on his way to Hellas Verona.


Brazilian centre back, David Luiz is still a free agent and perhaps one of the most useful free agents available.

The 34-year old last played for Arsenal and has been unattached since his contract expired in June despite being linked with a move to Flamengo in his native Brazil.

David Luiz is known as a maverick but he's also a very accomplished footballer who was a regular for Chelsea, PSG and the Brazilian national team during his prime.

According to the player himself, David Luiz has received some offers from different clubs but he's taking time to wait for a perfect fit.


News broke on transfer deadline day that Serge Aurier has had his contract with Tottenham terminated which makes him a free agent.

The club signed Emerson Royal from Barcelona which meant Aurier was no longer needed and ultimately released.

It is unlikely that Serge Aurier will struggle to find a club though, he's still only 28 years old and is a high profile player although with a history of making silly mistakes.

He joined Tottenham from PSG in 2017 and with such pedigree, he’s expected to be courted by the big teams having already been linked with a Jose Mourinho reunion at Roma.


Former Arsenal and England superstar, Jack Wilshere has hit rock bottom, still unattached after getting released by Bournemouth at the end of last season.

The worst part is, nobody wants him, despite the quality he showed earlier in his career and him being only 29 years old now, he’s admitted to not receiving any offers.

He has reportedly been training with Italian Serie B side, Como but even they have been reluctant to take a chance on Wilshere.

Wilshere’s best years were at Arsenal and his career has been on a downward spiral since he left the club to join West Ham in 2018, hopefully, a club gives him the opportunity he needs.


Remember, Sergio Romero? Manchester United’s backup goalkeeper for the last six years, he’s now without a club.

The Argentine shot-stopper was released this summer by Manchester United after the emergence of Dean Henderson and the signing of Tom Heaton.

He was linked with a move to Spanish side, Granada but that has failed to materialise so far as his search for a new club continues.

Romero was a capable deputy for David De Gea and is a solid keeper in his own right, it shouldn’t take him too long to find a new club.
