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;

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.

  1. I am astound by the fact that the club management didn’t see this coming way back then at the beginning of the season. Arsenals long standing play style could not be successful without a solid mid-field players, who are consistently playing together to know each other’s moves. Emery’s biggest failure was not recognizing that early and changing the mid-field players every game. Ganduzi, Torriera and Cebajos shoud be constant in the middle of the pitch. Lacz, Abu and Martinelli should start every game up front. Metland Niles on the right wing, David and socratis in the center, Tierney on the left wing and Martnez should be 1st Goalkeeper. If the team keep this lineup consistently, the result will be much better than what we have now.
