8 EPL Stars Who May Need To Move To Make Their WC Squads

With the 2018 FIFA World Cup a few months away, many players will be hoping to catch the attention of their national coaches ahead of the tournament. Here are eight Premier League players who may need to leave their current clubs in order to get more game time in their bid to go to Russia 2018.

Click through the gallery above to see eight players who may need to leave their clubs in order to make it to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, according to The Sun.

English publication The Sun believes Belgium and Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi may need to consider a move away from Stamford Bridge. The 24-year-old has struggled to convince manager Antonio Conte that he is adequate competition for Alvaro Morata, and is mostly used as a substitute these days.

Colombian international David Ospina is currently Arsenal's second choice goalkeeper and finds himself mainly being used in cup ties, as well as the odd UEFA Europa League fixture. The 29-year-old has made only three appearances for the London club so far this season, which must be frustrating for him as he is considered his country's No 1 shot-stopper.

Another player whose future could lie away from his current employer for the good of his international career is Manchester United defender Luke Shaw. The left back has dropped down the pecking order at the Red Devils and is currently seeing the likes of Ashley Young and Matteo Darmian playing ahead of him in his position.

Others who may want to leave their current clubs to improve their chances of going to next year's World Cup, according to The Sun, include Aleksandar Mitrovic (Newcastle United), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Olivier Giroud (Arsenal), Ross Barkley (Everton) and Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)

Which of these players do you think should perhaps force a move in the upcoming window? Have your say in the comments section below.
