Ah, thanks for the edit. That helps to understand you're looking for a freely licensed typeface.

So, Circular itself is inspired by Futura, so likely you want web fonts that are inspired by Futura.

A google search will return plenty of suggestions.

One result is Joel Crawford's web site where he lists the closest Google Font match to a whole range of typefaces. For Futura, he recommends Nunito.

while as not as refined as Circular, I found Google's Karla to be quite in style with the recent trend of geometric sans-serifs.
