Pundit makes prediction about Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal futures: This will happen
Shaka Hislop is tipping both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to extend their stays at Arsenal
Shaka Hislop is tipping both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to extend their stays at Arsenal and end the speculation about their futures.
The pair’s situations at the north London club have been a source of debate in the last few weeks due to the fact that both players have entered into the final 18 months of their contracts at The Emirates.
Ozil has developed into one of the Premier League’s most exciting playmakers since his arrival at Arsenal from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013.
And Sanchez has earned a reputation as one of the top flight’s top attackers since joining the Gunners from Barcelona in 2014.
Both players are thought to be in talks with Arsenal about the possibility of extending their contracts at The Emirates.
However, despite the speculation about both of their futures, former goalkeeper Hislop is expecting to see Ozil and Sanchez stay at The Emirates.
He told EPSN FC: “It [Sanchez joining PSG] would be a great move but I don’t see it happening.
“Alexis Sanchez is at the right club and I don’t think he’ll move.
“I will keep saying this until [he leaves] but I believe Sanchez will stay at Arsenal.”
On Ozil, he added: “There’s a lot of speculation around him which I understand.
“I think he needs to step up a gear, I don’t think he’s been quite the player or quite as influence as he has been in the past.
“But still, I think he is in the right place. I think Ozil will stay at the Emirates.”
Arsenal travel to Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday.
