Arsenal has done a great job getting the players out of the door this transfer window, Sokratis Papasthopalois, Sead Kolasinac, William Saliba have all been either loaned out or released. Left-back Sead Kolasinac has been loaned back to his former club Schalke in Bundesliga while William Saliba has been loaned out to Ligue 1 side Nice in order to help the Frenchman get ready for the first-team action next season while former Dortmund man Sokratis has been released for free after mutual contract termination. Mesut Özil is also expected to be departing in the coming days, however, Arsenal still have players on their books who need a move and here we look at three such players:
The arrival of Martin Odegaard would mean even fewer minutes of first-team action for Joe Willock and with competition stiff in the middle of the park, Willock should be looking at a move away to a Premier League side where he could prove his worth and stake a claim at a first-team spot again next season at Arsenal. There’s absolutely no point for a player of his caliber to be sitting out the next six months without much action.

The Icelandic goalkeeper is now third in the pecking order at Arsenal after the recent signing of Mat Ryan from Brighton and Hove Albion and should be looking for a move away to a Championship side ideally where he could successfully establish himself and adapt to the English condition.
