This season’s edition of the Premier League started in a pretty exciting manner, with the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester City all getting off to great starts. Although Liverpool eventually gained complete control of the top spot, it would’ve been enjoyable to see how the rest of the campaign panned out without any interruption. While multiple new additions were made during by various sides over the winter transfer window, the next obstacle for players and clubs alike comes in the form of professionals who are out of contract at the end of the season.

Free Agents Best XI Of Premier League Stars At The End Of Current Season

GK – Willy Caballero – Chelsea

The Argentine veteran has been around the English game for the longest time now, first with Manchester City and now with Chelsea. He’s been given a few rare opportunities to start in the Premier League by Frank Lampard this season, and he has done a reasonably good job.

RB – Nathaniel Clyne – Liverpool

The Englishman was once considered to be the next big thing at Anfield, but unfortunately for him, his development was stunted due to injury. Having made the loan switch away to Bournemouth in search of regular football, he has struggled to nail down a place in the side and is out of contract with the Reds this summer.

CB – Jan Vertonghen – Tottenham

The Belgian international has been one of Tottenham’s most loyal servants over the years, and his potential departure is sure to hurt the Spurs’ backline. Now 32, the former Ajax star has been at the North London club since 2012, and will surely be missed quite sorely.

CB – Wes Morgan – Leicester City

The veteran centre-half was the skipper of the Leicester City side when they did the unthinkable to secure the Premier League title. While the fact that he’s 36 could tempt clubs to offer him smaller degree coaching roles, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Morgan play a couple more seasons in England.

LB – Leighton Baines – Everton

The Englishman was once regarded the best left-back in the Premier League owing to his stellar crossing abilities from wide. Despite being quite far into his twilight years, the Toffees offered him a year-long extension last time out, but he could well be on the move this time around.

RCM – Matty Longstaff – Newcastle United

The 19-year-old is the youngest player on this list, and due to no fault of his own. Newcastle have clarified that they’re working on the teenager’s extension at Tyneside, but as things stand, the Magpies’ midfielder is on his way out of the club at the end of the season. He will probably have no shortage of suitors this summer.

CM – David Silva – Manchester City

The midfield maestro has arguably been one of the Premier League’s most influential figures over the last decade, and his services will be of utmost use to a majority of the continent’s biggest clubs. Despite being 34 and slowing down considerably, the Spaniard’s undeniable quality and composure remain.

LCM – John Lundstram – Sheffield United

One of the biggest surprise packages of the season so far – the 26-year-old Englishman has worked his socks off to keep this Sheffield United team in the top half of the table. Although the Blades are unlikely to let him leave for free in the summer, at this moment in time, he could walk away at the end of the term.

RW – Willian – Chelsea

The Brazilian veteran continues to be a regular starter at Stamford Bridge under the guidance of Frank Lampard. However, there are still significant question marks surrounding his future at the club. Despite being 31, the speedster still offers a wide variety of attacking attributes that would be useful at a plethora of European clubs.

ST – Olivier Giroud – Chelsea

The French World Cup winner has showcased his quality and worth yet again over the last few months as the injury to Tammy Abraham forced him back into the side. Still more than capable of having an attacking impact, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get snapped up fairly quickly in the summer.

LW – Pedro – Chelsea

Completing the three-man Chelsea front-line is former Barcelona star Pedro, who singlehandedly has more Champions League titles under his belt than most teams in Europe do. He’s begun to show a decent run of form over recent months, and could hence be a property in demand during the summer.

Substitutes

GK – Ben Foster – Watford

CB – Japhet Tanganga – Tottenham

LB – Jose Holebas – Watford

CM – Adam Lallana – Liverpool

ST – Oumar Niasse – Everton

RW – Ryan Fraser – Bournemouth

Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.
