While Arsenal’s new summer signings have more-or-less found their feet in the English Premier League, it’s time that the club must dispense with some of the fringe players in the January transfer window.
Arsene Wenger has been given a lump sum transfer budget to make the squad stronger in January. But before doing that he must get rid of some of the players who are deemed surplus to requirements at the Emirates.
Andrey Arshavin: Seriously, anyone believes he should stay? The enigmatic Russian came with lots of promise but inconsistency is a demon that impeded him from becoming a great Arsenal player. Last season he was sent on loan to Zenith and this season has only made two league appearances. Arsenal can do better than paying his exorbitant wages for making appearances in Capital One Cup and FA Cup matches.
Andre Santos: The Brazilian recently stated that he would fight tooth and nail for a regular spot in the team. If his performance against Schalke was just the kind of example of the ‘fight’ he was talking about then its better give that chance to some young academy youngsters.
Marouane Chamakh: When a striker doesn’t get a game even in cup games that shows he has simply lost the trust of his manager. He came on a free transfer and can leave on a free transfer as well. I bet no one will shed a single drop of tear for him if he leaves.
Johan Djourou: The Swiss international is mainly seen as a team player. The 25-year-old without any ambition in his life has taken that role like an obedient son. Arsenal should find a better team player than him and secondly, with age at his side, the player must go elsewhere to get regular games.
Theo Walcott: Let me first tell you, I do want Walcott to stay. But, if his contract situation doesn’t improve, there’s no point in keeping him beyond the January transfer window. Take the dosh and invest on a better player would be advisable. Wenger must integrate young Serge Gnabry to the senior squad, if the rumours and hype about his talents are true.
And off course, there is Sebastian Squillaci…!!!
