Since Premier League clubs revealed the list of free agents they’ve released, a host of players have embarked on a summer long hunt to find a new team. It’s an exciting time of the year as clubs battle it out to find the best players to improve their team without breaking the bank.
With so many top players either looking for pastures new, written off through injury or just deemed surplus to requirements at their previous clubs, there is now a wealth of talent available on the cheap. From experienced campaigners looking for one last hurrah with a promoted side to aspiring youngsters looking for their big break with a European challenger, there is enough talent to select an entire side capable of turning a few heads in the Premier League.
Having sifted through the dross and found the gems, it seems only natural to practice my fantasy football manager skills by placing these bargain basement stars into a cohesive unit that would threaten the very best sides.
Below lies the best available XI players that can be signed for next to nothing plus a substitutes bench for those that didn’t make the first team but are still worthy of a place on the shortlist.
