A host of big-name stars could leave their clubs for nothing come the end of the season, and here Goal.com gives you the full list of players who might be up for grabs

With the January transfer window now open, Premier League clubs are having to decide whether to cash in on some of their star players or risk losing them for free next summer.

Andre Villas-Boas has already overseen the first blood-letting of the Chelsea ‘old guard’, allowing Nicolas Anelka to depart for Shanghai Shenhua and granting Brazilian defender Alex’s transfer request. With Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda and Jose Bosingwa among five other first-team players out of contract at the end of the season, more big names could follow.

Bolton appear certain to grant defender Gary Cahill a move to one of the country’s top clubs as they look to bolster a relegation-threatened squad, while fellow strugglers Blackburn will do well to keep talented young winger Junior Hoilett from the clutches of a host of potential suitors. Arsenal’s Andrei Arshavin and Fulham’s Andy Johnson could also depart if they cannot agree new deals with their respective clubs soon.

With a number of players in the Premier League out of contract in the summer, Goal.com runs through a club-by-club guide of who could be moving on in the coming months…
