Arsenal are in a bit of a mess at the moment and speculation is surrounding the club as a whole.

Manager Arsene Wenger’s future at the club remains under serious scrutiny and indecision, whilst various players are being touted with moves away from the club due to an impatience regarding Arsenal’s failure to compete at the very top of the Premier League in the recent years.

However, it’s hard to say that the players on the pitch have done enough this season, and consequences for their underwhelming performances should certainly follow suit when the summer transfer window rolls around at the start of July.

Although it can’t be denied that Arsenal have a plethora of top quality players at their disposal, they can almost certainly improve on what they’ve currently got in some areas of the pitch.

So here are some players that will need to step up before the end of the season, or else their positions will be under threat!
