5 players who need to leave Arsenal to further their careers
With the World Cup just around the corner (as well as the January transfer window), every player will be want to impress, with the hope of winning a place in their respective international squads, ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, next year.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have a plethora of stars vying for a slot in their respective nation's World Cup squad. However, with a number of star names stepping up for the Gunners week in, week out, a number of players have found themselves stumbling down Arsene Wenger's pecking order.
This piece will be focusing on 5 Arsenal players who should think about leaving the club, in order to further their career; for club and country:
#5 David Ospina
At 29-years of age, it is rather evident that David Ospina will not be Petr Cech's permanent replacement when his time at the Emirates is up. The Columbian shot-stopper has only made six Premier League appearances since the beginning of the 2015-16 campaign, and that figure will not be rising anytime soon.
Although he may get the odd cup game, Ospina is clearly not getting as much game time as he should and he'd want to.
There is no doubt that Ospina is a talented goalkeeper, and there would be no shortage of interest if he did seek a move away from North London. Although Columbia failed to qualify for next year's World Cup, at 29-years-old, he definitely still has another Copa America waiting, and maybe another World Cup if he makes the right decision.
