Mesut Ozil And Alexis Sanchez Won't Leave In January - Arsene Wenger


"For me, they stay until the end of the season".

Sanchez and Ozil have been integral in Arsenal's recent impressive form, where victories over Tottenham and Burnley have seen them climb above their North London rivals into the top four. Burnley's players accused Ramsey of going down lightly in the box, but Wenger - who has harshly criticised several penalty decisions against his own team this season - disagreed.

Sanchez and Ozil can both leave for nothing next summer after running down their contracts and, while Wenger is powerless to prevent that scenario, he remains unwilling to simply sell them to the highest bidder when the January transfer window open.

"Yeah, I rule it [a transfer] out", he said.

Ahead of the game, Arsene Wenger has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this morning and he's given reporters a team news and injury update.

"If I think it right and in his best interests for him to stay here, then I fight 100 per cent for him to stay because he's a top-quality guy and is back fit now". That's impossible to answer today.

He told the BBC: "Mesut Ozil to Manchester United on a free looks a shoo-in".

"We have a good chance tomorrow to take three points at home and that is the only thing that matters", he said.

"In the first half we didn't find our game, they stopped us from playing very well. But they have a contract until the end of the season".

Manchester United and Man City could be put off spending large sums on the players considering they can be signed for free next summer.
