The Italian Serie A TIM 2019/20 free agents

January is quickly approaching and with it comes the winter transfer window. Contract renewals to extend a players tenure at a club; player sales to generate revenue and/or acquire a new player (youth or experienced); or potential zero parameter scenarios for players at the end of each season (as six months before the natural expiration of a contract, players are free to sign with other clubs) – this period of calcio is always very intense and essential to prepare for.

Taking a close look into the Italian Serie TIM, there are 64 players who, in January, will be in one of the three aforementioned scenarios; all players of the league whose contracts will expire on June 30th, 2019. A date circled in red by the clubs sporting director, as well as the players themselves, a new opportunity could be on the horizon for certain individuals. However, one question that remains unanswered is the number of players that will leave in the winter compared to waiting until the summer to make up their mind.

Below is the complete list of the 64 footballers, divided by club. There are only two clubs (Atalanta and Napoli) who have no players to worry about come June. The age gap will be from to 20 (1998) to 40 years of age (1979).
