Another former Man City man who has been clinical in Spain over the past few years, Swedish star John Guidetti is a physical forward with great finishing stats.
Available for a bargain price, we think this former wonderkid could become a major player for your side.
The sky was the limit for Nabil Bentaleb when he first burst onto the scene, but now the 26-year-old finds himself without a club and that just doesn't seem right.
