Look for worn tie rod end or worn upper or lower ball joints. Usually you can tell which one by grabbing top and bottom of wheel if you get movement here ball joint. You could also have an issue with both rod ends and ball joints. They are not hard to replace.

Could also be a wheel bearing or an inner tierod end or even the rack and pinion assembly, if you can move up and down and side to side probably the bearing.

Yes I should have mentioned those as well. With wheel bearing you should hear a noise while driving. It will sound like a grinding/wining sound and usually changes as you turn left and right while driving. Also if you have a helper to watch under car as you move wheel you can find the source of the play easier.
