Arsenal currently sit in 8th place on the Premier League table, seven points behind Chelsea who currently occupy 4th place.
If the Gunners are to turn their torrid season around going into the second-half of the Premier League campaign, here are five players they must offload;
5. Mesut Ozil
Mesut Ozil’s time at Arsenal has been largely plagued by inconsistency.
On his day, he’s capable of things that other midfielders can only dream about, but the problem with Ozil is the fact that he hardly ever exerts his influence on games anymore.
Perhaps this is down to the fact that the former Real Madrid man is now 31 years old and is entering the twilight of his football career, but regardless, a player of his caliber should be producing much more than he currently is for Arsenal.
Arsenal are in dire need of a reliable creative catalyst, and thus far, Ozil has proven he’s no longer capable of assuming that role on a consistent basis as evidenced by his lack of goal or assist contributions in his five Premier League appearances so far, hence, the club would be wise to offload him in January.
