5 Arsenal first-team players who could leave the club for free next summer

Mesut Ozil

We have to start with the most successful Arsenal player on this list and that’s Mesut Ozil. The German lit up the Emirates after moving from Real Madrid back in 2013. However, in recent seasons, his performances have often come in for criticism and he’s found himself out the team on a regular basis. Now under Mikel Arteta, the three-time FA Cup winner seems to have been frozen out having yet to feature in a matchday squad. To make things worse for the 31-year-old, on Thursday he was left out of Arsenal’s Europa League squad. It seems that the club’s highest paid player – earning around £350,000 per-week – is nearing the end of his rollercoaster time in North London.
