Arsene Wenger, Arsenal’s manager, said in a post-match press conference that Arsenal’s stars, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, want to stay at Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger said that the stars, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, love the club and they want to stay at the Emirates Stadium if they get a good deal.
Arsene Wenger said: I am confident that they love the club, but when will we decide on the other things? I really don’t know. I think they want to stay, but there are a lot of big clubs as well who will give them good deals.”
When Wenger was asked if winning against Tottenham Hotspurs will make them sign new contracts he said:” That’s not enough, because the contracts should be good as well. Contracts, salaries, play a major role, but other things as well help. Everything should suit the players”
Wenger means that money is one of the major issues which is preventing Sanchez and Ozil to renew their contracts that expire within 7 months next summer, June 2018. Knowing that Arsene Wenger confessed that the players may leave in the winter transfer windows, in January.
Alexis Sanchez has scored yesterday a goal in Arsenal’s 2-0 win against Tottenham Hotspurs in the North London Derby, and Mesut Ozil provided an assist for Shkodran Mustafi’s goal and won the man of the match.
The duo helped Arsenal win over Tottenham Hotspurs, Arsenal’s historical opponent, for the first time since 7 matches.
