Arsene Wenger has insisted that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will both still be at Arsenal after the close of the January transfer window.

The pair’s futures have been relentless sources of speculation in recent months after they both entered into the final 12 months of their contracts at The Emirates.

Sanchez was heavily linked with a transfer away from Arsenal in the summer and was touted as a target for Manchester City as the window closed.

There is bound to be plenty of fresh speculation about both players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window draws ever nearer.

However, Wenger appears to be adamant that both Ozil and Sanchez will be remaining at Arsenal until the end of the season.

Asked if both players will still be at the club in February, Wenger told a news conference on Tuesday morning: “Yes. Of course.”

Then, asked if Ozil and Sanchez will still be at the club in a year’s time, he replied: “I am not the only one who decides that.”

Arsenal are currently preparing for their home Premier League clash against Huddersfield Town on Wednesday night as they look to make it three wins in a row in the top flight.

The Gunners secured a 1-0 win over Burnley on Sunday thanks to Sanchez’s late penalty as they moved up into fourth place in the table after 13 games.
