Former Arsenal player Charlie Nicholas believes the club should get rid of Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny.
Emery had a good start at the Emirates but the results but recent results have seen Manchester United level on points with the north London side. The Arsenal boss is keen to strengthen his squad this month but he admitted the club is not able to make a permanent signing. The 57-year-old cannot see Arsenal finishing in the top four of the Premier League this season, largely due to the team’s leaky and vulnerable defense.
"I have accepted Arsenal are not going to get fourth, but the defensive struggles are there. Shkodran Mustafi should be sold on and Laurent Koscielny should be released. ‘I think they should get rid of Ozil," he said.
"It is the people running the club who gave him the wage, but it looks silly letting Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere go. Hopefully, Juventus will take Ramsey immediately and Arsenal gets some money for him. Ozil does not fit Emery’s plans, so you get the agent in and look for him to go elsewhere," he added.
