Arsene Wenger: Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil could leave in January

Arsene Wenger: I could sell Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in January

The Daily Mirror claims that the Chile worldwide will not sign a new deal and Arsenal are now deciding whether to cash in on the 28-year-old in the January transfer window.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has previously insisted that the Chilean global would see out the remainder of his deal but on Thursday, the Gunners manager claimed that the club were open to selling their star man at the start of 2018.

It is more likely that Sanchez will play against Watford than Mesut Ozil.

Asked if there was any deadline the pair needed to sign contract extensions by, Wenger said: "No, not at the moment".

But asked if that means they could leave in January he said: "Yes, it's possible".

"Once you are in our kind of situation we have envisaged every kind of solution".




He said: "I always said that the fact that we didn't find an agreement past year doesn't mean the player will necessarily leave".

Wenger says on Thursday "both players look happy here and overall I hope the situation can be turned around".

But he then added: "At the moment, we are not close enough to announcing anything".

Sanchez has been trying to quit Arsenal for the previous year or so, was unable to get his move on deadline day and now Chile have not qualified for the World Cup.

The Gunners head into the game looking to build on their recent upturn in form, with their 2-0 victory over Brighton before the worldwide break leaving Wenger's men fifth in the table and six points behind leaders Manchester City. Yesterday I watched the whole game, and I must say he got some special treatment.

"Mentally, I will have to assess the situation when he comes back tomorrow (Friday)".
