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

Ozil and fellow star Alexis Sanchez could both leave the club on free transfers next summer when their current deals expire, with negotiations having been shelved this spring amid the uncertainty surrounding Arsene Wenger's future.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the club are in talks to extend Mesut Ozil's contract.

Paris Saint-Germain full-back Dani Alves has admitted that "it would be good" if his side were to win the race to land Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

"I always said that the fact we didn't sign an agreement doesn't mean that the player will leave".

He added: "Both players look happy and overall I hope the situation can be turned around, but at the moment we are not close enough to announce anything.

It is possible", he said when asked at his weekly press conference whether either or both could leave the club in January.

"Wenger is clearly anticipating that Sanchez will be very low when he returns from the global break".

Arsene Wenger has cast doubt over whether Alexis Sanchez will be involved for their Premier League clash against Watford this weekend, after the Chile worldwide received "special treatment" on global duty.

"Sanchez has been trying to leave 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".

Asked if he was anxious about Sanchez's mental state, Wenger said: "I will have to speak to him". He got some special treatment in a very physical game (against Brazil) and mentally I'll have to assess the situation. "I believe that Jack is in the best form that I have seen him for a long time".

"I believe he and Ramsey are winners and will want to focus on winning things".
