From Robson-Kanu to Klose: The top 10 free agents in football

1. Hal Robson-Kanu, 27, striker

In the aftermath of Wales' Euro 2016 semifinal loss to Portugal, Robson-Kanu admitted that his performances in France had increased the demand for his services. He said he had received offers from "the Premier League and the rest of the world," though intimated a preference to stay in England after running down his contract with Reading.

Moments like his winning goal against Slovakia, and the Cruyff turn with which he bamboozled Belgium's defenders, have made hot property of someone who has played the majority of his football in the Championship. Hull City currently lead the list of suitors.

2. Kolo Toure, 35, defender

If a manager is looking for a defensive organiser who has seen it all, veteran Toure fits the bill. His final season at Liverpool, in which he made 26 appearances stepping in admirably for the banned Mamadou Sakho, showed he is no passenger. Celtic, now managed by Brendan Rodgers, the man who brought him to Anfield in the summer of 2013, have been in touch.

3. Michael McGovern, 32, goalkeeper

Like Robson-Kanu, McGovern entered Euro 2016 with "unattached" next to his name, but impressive performances in France have galvanised his prospects of landing a decent new contract. He conceded just three goals in three matches -- his heroics against Germany kept the score at just 1-0 -- helping take his team through to the knockout round as one of the highest ranked third-place teams. Released by Scotland's Hamilton Academical, he is currently linked with the backup job at Premier League club Burnley.

4. Stephane Sessegnon, 32, attacking midfielder/forward

On his day, he is capable of real magic, and was something of a cult hero at both Sunderland and West Brom, from where he gained five years of Premier League experience. Last season, he was something of a victim of Tony Pulis' lone-striker system and instead had to work hard as a midfielder. A haul of two goals was disappointing for someone who can supply the spectacular.

5. Martin Caceres, 29, defender

Italy's performances at Euro 2016 brought recognition of the high quality of Juventus defenders, and the Uruguayan, a Copa America winner in 2011, is available after being released by the Italian champions. Usually a backup to the likes of Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli, he has been recovering from an Achilles problem but has still been linked with both Fiorentina and Galatasaray.

6. Emmanuel Adebayor, 32, striker

The four months he spent at Crystal Palace last season were disappointing after having finally extricated himself from Tottenham. He could not repeat his usual trick of having an immediate impact on his new club before his returns diminish; after scoring in his third match, he did not find the back of the net again. However, there may still be managers who think they can bring out the talent that in the past attracted the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Spurs.

7. Kevin-Prince Boateng, 29, attacking midfielder/forward

His talent has never been in doubt, and after a patchy Premier League career with Tottenham and Portsmouth, he made himself something of a star on the continent with AC Milan and Schalke. However, the German club's December termination of his contract for poor discipline and an unsuccessful return to Milan are red flags. He has repeatedly proved himself an effective wild card, but represents significant risk.

8. Charles N'Zogbia, 30, winger

Aston Villa's disastrous relegation season saw him play in just two Premier League matches (totaling under 90 minutes in that long-doomed campaign. He rejected a January move to AEK Athens to spend the rest of the season on the sidelines. Another player of high talent yet low levels of consistency, he has been training with Sunderland over the summer. His exit from Villa has left considerable marks against his motivation levels.

9. Mathieu Flamini, 32, midfielder

His second spell at Arsenal ended just like the first one -- on a free transfer. In fact, Flamini has never moved for a fee, first leaving Marseille for Arsenal in 2004 then joining AC Milan in 2008 and returning to Arsenal in 2013. This time, though, he has no destination, though he may not need the money. Business interests outside playing have come to prominence; ownership of a biochemicals company may make him a billionaire.

10. Miroslav Klose, 38, striker

He might be 38, but if there was somebody that Germany missed in the Euros, it was Klose. They have not replaced his 71 goals in 137 matches and paid the price in the semifinals when losing to France. He was released by Lazio in May, after five years of being a crowd favourite in Rome, but signalled his intention to play on. "I want to continue scoring goals," he said. MLS has been mooted but no deal is yet done.
