Former Gunner Paul Mariner sifts through an Arsenal-heavy transfer rater, including Marouane Fellaini, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Jack Wilshere.
Yaya Toure claims he will play for 1 pound a week to prove Pep Guardiola wrong, but Steve Nicol thinks his antics will make top clubs stay away.

The Premier League lists of released and retained players are out. While some of these players either have been or will be offered a new deal by the club for which they most recently played, they are also free to sign elsewhere.

Here are some of the names available on a free transfer this summer.

Marouane Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini could leave Manchester United for free in the summer.
Marouane Fellaini has been linked with Arsenal.

Unstoppable on his day, but those days rarely came under Jose Mourinho. Fellaini has an offer on the table from Manchester United but looks set to move. Might he make a shock switch to Arsenal?

Jack Wilshere

Jack Wilshere has made 36 appearances for Arsenal this season, his most for the club since the 2010-11 season.
Jack Wilshere has struggled with injury in recent years.

Another with an offer from his current club and who can be unplayable, Wilshere has struggled to get game time and his niggling injury history has put Arsenal off awarding him a large pay hike. 

Emre Can

Emre Can has been linked with Juventus this summer.

Liverpool have a host of midfielders arriving at the club, and most notably in Can’s case there’s Fabinho so the Reds might already have moved on. Juventus look favourites to land the Germany international. Also available from Liverpool is academy graduate Jon Flanagan.

Yaya Toure

Yaya Toure still hopes to play at the highest level.

Landing the headlines for his comments about Pep Guardiola, Toure is clearly frustrated about his playing time at City. A top-six club may come in, according to his agent. But he’ll play anywhere for £1.

Claudio Yacob

Claudio Yacob could still make an impact.

It seems a long time ago that Yacob was shining in midfield with his aggressive tackling. West Brom went down, but they should really keep a player like him for the Championship — if they can afford him, that is.

Patrice Evra

Patrice Evra has hopes of continuing his playing career.

Monday Motivation wasn’t enough to persuade West Ham to keep the 37-year-old. He played just five games after being handed a short-term deal by David Moyes, but may end up retiring if he can’t find a new club.

Ki Sung-Yeung

Ki Sung-Yeung will go to the World Cup with South Korea.

With Ki and Angel Rangel leaving, as well as Leon Britton’s retirement, Swansea are in a bit of state after their relegation. Ki is only 29 though and should be of interest to Premier League clubs.

Joel Robles

Joel Robles lost his No. 1 status.

Not a big surprise given the arrival of Jordan Pickford at Everton. Robles had the No. 1 shirt for a bit, but now looks likely to join Getafe.

Yohan Cabaye

Yohan Cabaye is a classy midfielder who could stay on.

He may be 32, but Cabaye still has plenty to offer a Premier League club. The former Newcastle man may not have the stamina of old, but his creativity can still unlock defences.

Tim Krul

Tim Krul impressed while he was at Newcastle.

After struggling with injury, Krul dropped off the radar a bit and moved to Brighton. Still only 30, he could be an excellent signing for someone and was at one point first choice for Netherlands.
