Free Agents To Sign On FMM 2017


FMM 2017: Free Agent XI


There's nothing better than having millions and millions of money to spend in the transfer window. But what if you don't quite have the financial backing that other clubs have? Well, that's when you may turn to the free agents. Here, I've put together a free agents XI that may available to you during FMM 17.

Goalkeeper – Vladimir Gabulov

The 33-year old has been somewhat of a journeyman in his native Russia, playing for Dynamo Moscow (on 3 occasions), CSKA Moscow and Kuban Krasnodar.



If you’re in charge of a bottom-half Premier League club, or top-half Championship club, Gabulov would be ideal back up, or even a starter for your team.

Ideal for: Sunderland

Left Back – Juan Manuel Vargas

Also aged 33, the Peruvian international is probably most notable for turning out for Italian side Fiorentina, accumulating 147 appearances for the Lillies. Although he’s a natural left back, Vargas can also operate as a left winger.


He could easily do a job for a mid-table side in any top league in Europe, such as Watford, Malaga, Hertha Berlin or Torino.

Ideal for: A mid-table side

Centre Back – Martin Caceres

Linked with Chelsea in the summer after being released by Juventus, the fact no club has picked up the Uruguay international comes as a bit of a surprise.


Caceres is getting on a bit at 29, but he could still do a job at a club who are pushing for European football, whether that’s the Europa League or the Champions League.

Ideal for: Tottenham Hotspur, Roma or Sevilla

Centre Back – Flavio Ferreira

The youngest player on the list, big things were expected from the 23-year old when he joined Malaga in 2013, but back problems kept him on the sidelines, limiting him to just 16 appearances in 3 years for the Spanish side.



Despite his injury problems, he would still make a good squad player for a top 8 side and downwards, as he still has plenty of time to fulfil his potential.

Ideal for: Stoke City

Right Back - Joey O’Brien

The ex-Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United player has been riddled with injuries over the last few seasons, suffering a calf injury and a hamstring injury during the 2015-16 campaign. Because of this, he couldn’t find a place in the Hammers’ starting 11, leading to his release in the summer after five years at the club.


Any manager in charge of a Championship side should almost certainly look at O’Brien, whether that’s at a club like Rotherham at the bottom, at QPR in mid-table, or at Brighton at the top.

Ideal for: Any Championship club

Defensive Midfield – Simao Mate Jr.

A steady defensive midfielder, Simao Mate Junior, or simply shortened to ‘Simao’, first appeared for Panathinaikos in 2007, before moving to Shandong Luneng of China in 2012, where he lasted just half a season as he moved to Levante, ending his spell with the Frogs in the summer of 2016.


Although not a household name, Simao would be an ideal signing for any mid-table club in the Premier League.

Ideal for: West Bromwich Albion

Centre Midfield – Michael Essien

You can be forgiven for forgetting that the Ghana international was still playing football. Essien was released by Greek side Panathinaikos in the summer, after making just 12 appearances.


The ex-Chelsea midfielder, who paid Lyon £24.4m for his services back in 2005, would be a great addition for a team at the top end of the Championship, with him offering plenty of experience after his spells in France, England, Spain, Italy and Greece.

Ideal for: Newcastle United

Centre Midfield – Raul Meireles

The bearded Portuguese has had quite an illustrious career, starring for FC Porto between 2004 and 2010, before moving to England where he played for both Liverpool and Chelsea, and then onto Fenerbahce, where he was released in the summer.


His best days may be behind him, but any Premier League team from mid-table downwards should snap Meireles up immediately.

Ideal for: Bournemouth

Attacking Midfield – Jefferson Farfan

Farfan made his name during a spell at PSV between 2004 and 2008, scoring 57 goals in 118 appearances. However, it was a FC Schalke where he became a continental player. He spent 7 years at the Royal Blues between 2008 and 2015, where he scored 39 goals in 170 appearances.


He may be 31, but he still has enough quality to play at the top, and his availability on a free transfer has already alerted several Premier League clubs.

Idea for: Southampton

Striker – Emmanuel Adebayor

Adebayor has quite an impressive CV, with clubs like Monaco, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal all on it, whom of which he is most remembered for, scoring 46 goals in 104 games for the Gunners.


The Togo international may not be the most prolific goal-scorer, but any relegation-threatened club in the Premier League, or even a top half team in the Championship, should consider signing him.

Ideal for: Hull City

Striker – Dimitar Berbatov

Finally, Dimitar Berbatov has arguably been one of the most underrated strikers of the 21st century. The Bulgarian has starred for Bayer Leverkusen, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, scoring a total of 280 goals in 656
appearances in his career.


At 35, he may be past his peak, but that doesn’t mean he can’t do a job at a bottom-half Premier League club.

Ideal for: Burnley
