With Arsenal falling short of their title aspirations yet again, the onus on Arsene Wenger next season will be to add some quality additions who can provide that final push for that elusive Premier League and Champions League aspiration. However no matter how well Arsenal have done on the financial front, the simple reality is that Arsene Wenger will need to clear some dead weights in the club if he is to strive to make significant changes. Here at Soccersouls we have named three players who should be offloaded by the London club in the summer.
As hard it is to hear given how much Arsene Wenger rates Abou Diaby as a player, it is perhaps time to end association with the Frenchman at the end of the season. Picked by Arsene Wenger to be the successor of one French legend Patrick Vieira there is definitely no doubting his skill or talent. However his long injury problems mean that he has hardly had a kick out in an Arsenal shirt in the last 3 years. As much as Arsene Wenger is sentimental about these things, he was not adverse to saying goodbye to Eduardo after the striker broke his leg. While Arsene Wenger feels differently about Diaby, it’s time to cut losses and accept that he will probably not be fit enough for him to make an impact in the Premier League.
