Football Manager 2023 has arrived, giving budding managers the chance to get started in their brand-new managerial careers.
With that in mind, we've got you covered for the best free agents you can sign at the start of this year's game.
Football Manager 2023 Best Free Agents
Free agents are vital in Football Manager, especially for sides that don't boast an incredibly large transfer budget.
It's worth noting that there is usually a reason that these players are without a club.
Whether it be injury or discipline issues, always tread carefully when heading into this muddled market.
A former Brighton star, Jose Izquierdo is just shy of 30 and finds himself without a club.
A nippy winger who could still do a job for a decent side, Izquierdo could be a great impact option off your substitute's bench.
Che Nunnely may not be a name that everyone is familiar with, but this 23-year-old tricky winger certainly seems too good to be on the free agency market.
A rising star who could realise his potential at your club, we think you'd be mad not to try and sign this man.
Giovani Dos Santos
A former Barcelona prodigy who shone for Mexico, Gio Dos Santos is a star that could do wonders if you managed to secure his signature.
Able to play anywhere across an attacking space, Gio still has plenty of magic left in those boots.
A surprising name on this list, Matej Vydra is battling with injury at the start of Football Manager 2023.
A quality player who has a few solid years ahead, rehabbing this guy and giving him a chance to flourish could be one of the best decisions you ever make.
Once costing Manchester City a fee in the region of £30-50 Million, Eliaquim Mangala never truly showcased his class in the Premier League.
That being said, there's no doubt that a top-level centre-half is still inside the Frenchmen, you'll just need to help him find his form again.
A former Premier League stalwart who never got that dream move to Milan, Danny Rose now finds himself without a club after leaving Watford.
Still with plenty to offer, Rose is a capable left-back who could be part of a successful side in England's second tier.
Another blast from the past, Zaza may be known for his unorthodox penalty technique, but he's also a capable striker.
He may be 31, but this Italian stallion has all the credentials to become an important part of your team in Football Manager 2023.
Former Newcastle hero Jetro Willems finds himself without a club at the start of Football Manager 2023, but we think you should be changing that sharply.
A capable defender who can also threaten on the attack, Willems is the ideal backup to bring in for free.
Another name not too familiar to many, William is a versatile Brazilian defender who can occupy defensive and offensive positions on both the left and right flank.
Playing most of his career at the top level in Germany, we still feel that this underrated gem has plenty to offer.
