Former Arsenal, QPR and Juventus men among hottest free agents
The transfer window may be closed for a few months, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility of a club making a signing.
Free agents are still able to join a new team and some top-flight sides have been looking at players without a club during the recent international break.
West Brom, for example, fielded both Marouane Chamakh and Momo Sissoko as trialists in a recent friendly so they could run the rule over the pair.
However, the Baggies could set their sights a little higher if they want fresh additions to their squad, with these three players the pick of the current free-agent bunch:
A defender that can play across the entire back-line, Caceres made 110 appearances for Juventus before being released this summer.
He’s being pursued by his former manager Antonio Conte at Chelsea and would bring a heavy bag of accolades to West London should he sign on the dotted line with the Blues.
A career spent with Barcelona and Juve has earned the 29-year-old seven league winners’ medals (six with the Italian giants) and a Champions League crown, while with Uruguay he won the Copa America in 2011.
After missing out the high-profile loan of Jack Wilshere on Deadline Day, Crystal Palace are could keep an Arsenal connection in midfield by landing Flamini.
The Frenchman played in 168 top-flight games for the Gunners across two spells and was used 16 times by Arsene Wenger last season.
His experience is reportedly tempting Alan Pardew into pursuing the 32-year-old, having sold Mile Jedinak to Aston Villa earlier in the summer.
Scoring six goals and laying on two assists in 29 Championship games last season wasn’t enough to secure Hoilett a future with QPR, and the Canadian remained unattached throughout the transfer window.
A gig at a Premier League team looks unlikely for the 26-year-old, with Wolves the latest club rumoured to be taking a look at him.
