Borussia Dortmund v FC Bayern Muenchen - UEFA Champions League Final
Arjen Robben could end his career away from Bayern

The January transfer window opens on New Year's day and clubs around Europe will look to strengthen their squads over the course of the month. 

The transfer window this January is going to be a lot more exciting as there are several high profile players, currently in the final year of their contract, seeking new employers. 

While a few of the players will be coaxed into longer stays with their current employers, a few players will manage to find themselves new clubs and possibly better deals in the current football market. 

Here we take a look at a few top players who will be available for free at the end of the season.

#5 Arjen Robben

Juventus  v FC Bayern Muenchen  - UEFA Champions League Round of 16
Robben in action for FC Bayern Muenchen

Bayern Munich winger and retired Dutch footballer Arjen Robben joined the German giants from Real Madrid in 2009. Since his arrival at the club, the Dutchman has played a pivotal role in the club's successes, during his time at the club. 

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, Robben's stay at the club could depend on who the incoming manager at the end of the season will be. Bayern sacked Ancelloti and replaced the Italian with former manager Jupp Heynckes for the rest of the season. 

The Dutchman could stay at the club for another season if Heynckes is retained as club boss for the next season. However, Robben will attract a number of suitors and a move back to Holland seems most likely from the player's perspective as Bayern continue to delay player negotiations.
