5 struggling big players who could be forced to leave their current clubs soon
It is very difficult for footballers to push their careers to a very high level but it is even more difficult for them to remain at such levels throughout their careers. This is because things change quickly in football and the battle to remain on top is a day-to-day affair.
There are many top superstars in Europe right now who are undergoing difficult phases in their careers. After making name for themselves and gaining the spotlight with their impressive performances, these elite players have now found themselves under intense pressure due to poor form and other issues.
Once considered the fan favorites, these superstars have fallen from grace to grass at their respective clubs and they are running out of time to turn things around. As a matter of fact, they could be forced to leave if they fail to find their feet very soon.
Below, we take a look at 5 of these superstars:
#5 Mesut Ozil
There are many top superstars who are struggling in Europe right now but one which we cannot afford to ignore is Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil. The ex-German International has endured a very difficult season so far, looking far below his usual self.
Ozil joined the Gunners from Real Madrid during the summer of 2013 and he was a bright light during his first 2 years at the Emirates, notably finishing as the most creative player across Europe's top 5 leagues for the 2015/2016 campaign.
However, following a promising start to life in North London, the former Real Madrid playmaker started deteriorating since about 2 years ago, and his struggles came to the fore under Unai Emery this term.
The manager has refused to count on him in recent weeks and it has become glaring that he doesn't have him in his plans. As a result, Ozil could be forced to quit the Emirates Stadium soon with a host of Serie A clubs including Inter Milan hoping to get his signature.
