Free transfer Premier League XI: Arsenal duo & Liverpool trio among this summer’s best out of contract players

Posted by

A plethora of Premier League talent is out of contract in the summer, and most should have no problem in attracting a new club – including Manchester City’s James Milner and Burnley’s Danny Ings.

Not to mention the most unfortunate player in England’s top-flight – Arsenal’s injury-prone Abou Diaby.

Take a look at the impressive free XI, as posted by Sky Sports, up for grabs at the end of the season in England’s top-flight…

Brad Friedel – Tottenham Hotspur

The 43-year-old has bags of experience in the Premier League having worn the shirt of Liverpool, Blackburn Rovers, Aston Villa, and current club Tottenham.

The American is still so highly respected that the Telegraph reported Jose Mourinho might even consider Friedel as a viable replacement to Petr Cech at Chelsea.

Glen Johnson – Liverpool

With no new offer having been tabled, it seems the right-back isn’t a part of Brendan Rodgers’ future plans at Anfield.

Despite showing signs of becoming one of the best in position, his decision-making and positioning has left him susceptible in defence throughout his career.

Ron Vlaar – Aston Villa

The Netherlands international is a star for his country, and was outstanding in the 2014 Brazil World Cup, but injury has halted his playing time this season.

Nonetheless, Vlaar would be an ideal fit for any clubs in need of a powerful centre-back.

Kolo Toure – Liverpool

Often the butt of online jokes since moving to Anfield, but the Ivorian has had a glistening career in the Premier League – and his experience – even simply behind the scenes – would be a valuable asset to any side.

Jon Flanagan – Liverpool

The full-back, capable of playing on either flank, had a stunning season in the 2013/14 campaign in which the Reds came within agonising touching distance of winning the Premier League title.

Injury has seen the youngster spend the entire current campaign on the sidelines, but despite his absence this term, it would be surprising if Brendan Rodgers allows the promising defender to leave.
