Arsene Wenger speaks about Alexis Sanchez future

Wenger has been speaking to the press ahead of the weekend's match with Man City

Arsene Wenger has been speaking to the press ahead of the weekend’s match with Manchester City, and has discussed the future of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

“In a positive way, there’s only one team in London, so he’s happy,” said Wenger.

“I have not a lot to add. I think he’s happy here. We have not extended his contract, I hope he will stay at the club. You have to be cautious when they give interviews in their home country. The interpretation is not always correct. It happened before when we had to sell our best players. But that’s not the case any more. He has one and half years contract. I don’t think it is an immediate concern for Arsenal.

“I personally believe both of them want to stay. I hope the club will find an agreement with them. He [Ozil] is in contention to start again. He played 20 minutes against Azerbaijan. He has worked very hard this week.”
