One free agent from each Premier League club should sign this summer transfer window.
The Premier League is by far the most powerful division in Europe in terms of financial capabilities. Therefore, they do not need to worry about transfer fees, right? Certainly not. That is why I am going to suggest one free agent Premier League club should sign this summer.
Arsenal – Isco
Arsenal are said to make a move for Mohammed Kudus, the Ghanaian attacking midfielder. However, having already spent big for the likes of rice, Havertz and Jurrien Timber. It is wise they get a free agent that can add experience to the incredibly young side. Especially with the departure of Granit Xhaka.
Isco, the 31-year-old midfielder, brings a wealth of experience and a list of achievements that make him a compelling signing for Arsenal. With career stats that boast 383 appearances, 67 goals, and 36 assists, Isco has proven to be a consistent performer over the years.
Isco’s time at Real Madrid speaks volumes about his winning mentality. He has been an integral part of the squad that clinched numerous titles, including three La Liga championships (2016–17, 2019–20, 2021–22), one Copa del Rey (2013–14), and three UEFA Champions League trophies (2013–14, 2015–16, 2016–17).
Isco’s prowess extends to the international stage, where he was a vital member of the Spain side. His talent and contributions were recognized with individual accolades, such as the prestigious Golden Boy Award in 2012.
Isco’s versatility in midfield makes him a valuable asset for any team. With his vision, passing ability, and playmaking skills, he can orchestrate attacks from various positions. Whether it’s as an attacking midfielder, central midfielder, or even a deep-lying playmaker, Isco’s adaptability offers tactical flexibility for the manager.
Having played at the highest level for many years, Isco brings a wealth of experience and maturity to the squad. He can guide and mentor younger players, providing valuable insights both on and off the pitch. His leadership qualities could be instrumental in instilling a winning mentality within the team.
Aston Villa – Adama Traoré
When considering potential signings, two players stand out now that their target for the right wing, Asensio has joined PSG: Adama Traoré, a free agent, and Moussa Diaby, an expensive option.
While both players possess unique qualities, Moussa Diaby will cost Villa an arm and a leg especially when bidding against a club from the Saudi Pro League. As a free agent, Adama would not require a significant transfer fee, allowing the club to allocate resources to other areas of the squad. This cost-effectiveness makes him an attractive option for any club looking to bolster its squad without breaking the bank.
Traorée’s career stats highlight his versatility, having played in multiple positions across top leagues such as La Liga, Premier League, and the Segunda División. His experience at Barcelona, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, and Wolverhampton Wanderers demonstrates his adaptability to different playing styles and systems.
Despite primarily being a winger, Traore has consistently contributed with goals throughout his career, netting an impressive 23 goals in 301 appearances. His goal-scoring ability adds an additional threat to the team’s attacking options.
Traore is renowned for his incredible speed and dribbling skills, making him a challenging player for defenders to contain. His explosive bursts down the flanks and ability to take on multiple opponents can unlock defenses and create goal-scoring opportunities.
Traore has a proven track record in the Premier League, having played over 150 matches for Wolverhampton Wanderers. His familiarity with the league could lead to a smoother transition and immediate impact for any new club. At 27 years old, Traore still has a lot to offer. With his skill set and the right guidance, there’s still untapped potential, meaning he could develop into an even more influential player in the future.
Bournemouth – Jean-Kévin Duverne
The Cherries are on the verge of signing left-back Milos Kerkez from AZ Alkmaar. While no doubt the defender is a young and exciting prospect. The club needs finished products to stay up in the league. That is why I suggest the free signing of Jean-Kévin Duverne.
Jean-Kévin Duverne’s impressive career stats and consistent performances make a compelling case for why he would be an excellent addition to the team.
Duverne’s experience at Lens and Brest has seen him amass a total of 186 appearances, showcasing his defensive prowess and reliability. With 169 appearances in the league, his consistent presence on the field highlights his ability to offer defensive stability and composure.
While primarily a left-back, Duverne has demonstrated versatility, having played at center-back on occasions. This adaptability adds value to his signing, as he can provide cover in multiple positions, offering Bournemouth tactical flexibility when needed.
Duverne’s career statistics reveal a player who is not only reliable defensively but also capable of contributing to the team’s attacking play. With 3 goals to his name, he has shown the ability to join the attack effectively, providing an additional offensive threat from the back.
Duverne’s talent and versatility makes him an appealing option for Bournemouth, especially considering his low demands compared to other left-back options in the market. His cost-effectiveness would allow the club to allocate resources to other areas of the squad.
Brentford – Daichi Kamada
Brentford are going all in for Nottingham Forest’s Brennan Johnson. However the Trick trees have hit back with an asking price of 50 million pounds. As Brentford FC looks to strengthen their squad and continue their upward trajectory in the footballing world, there’s one player that stands out as the perfect addition – Daichi Kamada. The free agent attacking midfielder has a track record that speaks volumes, and makes a convincing case for why Brentford should sign him.
Kamada’s time at Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga demonstrates his ability to find the back of the net consistently. With 20 goals in 127 appearances for the club, he has showcased his prowess as a goal-scorer. But his impact extends beyond that; he has also provided 14 assists, proving his skill as a creative playmaker.
Having played in the prestigious Bundesliga, Kamada has experienced top-tier football at its finest. His 179 appearances in one of Europe’s most competitive leagues highlight his adaptability and ability to perform under pressure. This experience would undoubtedly be a valuable asset for Brentford, as they seek to compete at the highest level.
Kamada’s versatility is evident from his contributions in different leagues. Whether it’s the J1 League in Japan, Bundesliga in Germany, or the Belgian First Division A with Sint-Truiden, he has consistently delivered impressive performances across multiple competitions. His creative and scoring prowess from midfielder complementing their already incredible attack,it is a match made in heaven.
Brentford, known for their attacking and dynamic style of football, finds Kamada’s skillset an ideal fit for their gameplay. His proficiency in both scoring and creating opportunities from midfield would be a valuable asset to complement Brentford’s forward line and provide vital support to their strikers. This also saves them a lot of money which they can invest in other crucial positions.
Brighton – Yerry Mina
Levi Colwill impressed last season at the Amex Stadium, especially, towards the end of the season. The defender is now certain to stay at Stamford Bridge after the injury of Fofana. Albion are looking to sign Igor from Florence to replace him. If that move fails for some reason they could do worse than signing former Everton defender Yerry Mina on a free.
