FM 2021 Best Players - Football Manager 2021 Best Free Players

Welcome to the ultimate list of the best free players in Football Manager 2021 by FMScout.com. As always, I have dedicated many hours compiling this list to ensure it really is the most accurate, comprehensive and informed shortlist of the top free transfers in FM21 around the web.

This is my guide to finding and assessing the top FM2021 free agents who would be willing to join a team from the top divisions. That means the players you see below will likely have no interest in signing to a lower league club.

FM2021 Best free transfers

Essentially, these are the most notable free agents in FM 2021 at the beginning of the first season (July 2020).

I've handpicked the top 440 FM21 free agents! Most of the players you'll find below would be a good fit for the top leagues, but there are candidates suitable for lower leagues.

Updates will be applied from to time to ensure I'm not missing any players worthy of appearing here. I encourage you to post your own suggestions in the comment section, as I'll be checking them all to improve this free agent list further.

This is the successor of FM 2020 best free agents.

What are free agents?

They are players without contract available on a free transfer. Free players are ideal to boost your squad when your transfer budget is very limited. They are usually players in the twilight of their career, but there are always cases of younger players who are still free for different reasons.

What does the rating mean?

It's my personal recommendation system for your convenience. I'm using a 1-100 scale and the ratings are based on English divisions and reflect the players' quality at their current ability.
80+ key player for 1st division teams
77-79 rotation/backup for 1st division teams
74-76 important player for 2nd division teams
71-73 important player for 3rd division teams
70-72 important player for 4th division teams

FAQ

I can't find all players of this list on my savegame. Why?

I loaded all players (390k+) in-game to produce this list of FM21 free agents. Your savegame possibly has fewer players loaded.

Where is the downloadable shortlist file to import in-game?

Sorry, I don't have one. I used to share shortlists before, but people would steal them and post on other sites without my consent. However, I will release a few shortlists with my favorite players.

Feedback Appreciated

I'm counting on your feedback to update this list, so I encourage you to post your suggestions in the comments section below for players I might have missed or others who shouldn't be here. Any questions regarding those players feel free to ask.

Did you find this article useful?

I would be grateful if you share this on Facebook, Twitter or Reddit. Thanks! :)

    @RamMalc: You could have named the 8 players you tried if you wanted to make a helpful remark, so I could actually check.

    Out of interest how many of them are actual free agents or just names to fill a list ? out of the 8 i tried 5 or 6 didn't exist and the remainder all had contracts

    UPDATED to reflect the actual FM21 data. Enjoy!

    @Cherritto: Thank you for reporting. I'm planning to deliver 2 more updates to this provisional list, last one on November 1st. And then revise it with actual FM21 data once the beta drops.
