Arsene Wenger delivers update on Arsenal duo

Arsene Wenger has spoken up about Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, sounding rather optimistic about the duo’s future at Arsenal. 

Both Ozil and Sanchez are due to sign a new contract for the Gunners with only a year left on their current deal, and there are major doubts about their commitment to the club.

Arsene Wenger, however, doesn’t have any doubts, having seen the star duo perform brilliantly against Stoke City. Speaking to Arsenal.com, when asked about their form being a reflection of their desire to stay.

“Yes, of course. Maybe one day I will be able to speak about that, but I don’t question, at the moment, their focus and their determination because every game they turn up and give strong performances”

The boss was also questioned whether Arsenal missing out on the UEFA Champions League could make it hard to keep Ozil and Alexis.

“No, because they are part of the results as well. Like I am. Overall, I think first of all they are under contract and secondly they behave like they want to be in the Champions League and like they want to be at the club. They don’t behave like players who are disinterested in the future of the club.”
