Nacho Monreal believes that Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will remain as Arsenal players until at least the end of the season.

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

Both Ozil and Sanchez’s deals are set to expire at the end of the season and it doesn’t look as if either player will pen a new contract as things stand.

With Arsenal running the risk of losing the players on free transfer next summer, there will inevitably be speculation suggesting that the Gunners could cash-in in the January transfer window rather than risk losing them for nothing.

However, Arsenal defender Monreal reckons that both players will stay at Arsenal until the end of the season at least.

Monreal is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror: “The feeling is that they will continue.

“At no time have we talked about the possibility of them leaving. Not at all. They are committed to the group and we will see what happens.

“I can’t say much about it. It does not depend on me. The situation is clear. They are two vital players for Arsenal. They are two players who end their contracts at the end of the season.

“If the club want them to stay beyond December [the January transfer window] they will follow.

“Yet, I do not know the club’s intentions. It is other people who are the ones who have to make a decision.”

Both Sanchez and Ozil were in good form on Saturday as they helped to inspire Arsenal to a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at The Emirates.

The Gunners are currently preparing for their Europa League trip to Cologne on Thursday night, before travelling to Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
