The Bosman ruling changed the way transfer take place in the football world, with players now able to leave for free at the end of their contract or they can also negotiate with foreign clubs which are not in the same league as theirs, in the January window.
Often a lot of players, very good ones are available to sign pre contracts in January and here we have a list of 3 targets who are available on a free from the Bundesliga at the end of the current season, they are able to talk to other clubs and these 3 players would be perfect for either Manchester United or Arsenal, both of whom need a few enforcements.
The Borrusia Monchengladbach defensive midfielder would be an amazing signing to have, he is currently at loan at Monchengladbach from Bayer Leverkusen and the 23 year old is out of contract at the end of the season. There have already been talks of Kramer being linked with Arsenal and the German World Cup winner would be a magnificent addition to either United or Arsenal.
Kramer would be available in the region of £10-12 million and could provide that steel in midfield that both clubs have been missing for quite a while.
The Hunter as he is known has always been one of the best strikers in the world but he wasn’t at his best for Real Madrid or AC Milan but a move to Germany has gotten him going all over again. Klaas by name and nature, has scored 101 goals in 156 games for Schalke.
He is a brilliant finisher and scored a hat trick in the most recent Bundesliga match, although he is 31 years old he would be a good striker to sign and he could be looking for a move to a new home. One last shot at picking up some silverware? Again he would be available in the region between £8-10 million but there are goals guaranteed with this signing.
Rafael van der Vaart
Van der Vaart has been a journey man and could have found his home at Hamburg, he started his career with Ajax, moved to Hamburg, then Madrid, Tottenham and now has spent the last 2 years at Hamburg but he has not signed a new contract for Hamburg and could be available on the cheap in January.
Van der Vaart could provide both clubs the extra attacking prowess in midfield and wouldn’t mind being a bit part player for either club, though him moving to Arsenal seems to be a little off since he played for Spurs but never say never in football. Hamburg haven’t been doing too well in the Bundesliga for a couple of years and this could be his exit route from the club.
