Ian Wright has admitted that the thought of how much it would cost Arsenal to replace Mesut Ozil next year makes him want to “cry”.

The 29-year-old’s future has been a relentless source of speculation over the last few months after both he and Alexis Sanchez entered into the final 12 months of their contracts at The Emirates.

There remains a constant sense of uncertainty about Ozil and Sanchez’s futures at Arsenal, with the Gunners facing the real possibility of losing both players on free transfers at the end of the season.

The situation is made all the more desperate for Arsenal following Ozil’s impressive form for the north London side in recent weeks.

And Arsenal legend Wright has admitted his displeasure at the way the situation appears to be panning out for Ozil at Arsenal.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live about Ozil’s situation at the club, Wright said: “How much will it cost to replace him? It makes me cry.”

Ozil will be expecting to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Friday night with a crunch clash against Liverpool FC at The Emirates.

The Gunners head into the game looking to make it back to back wins in the top flight after their 1-0 victory over Newcastle United last Saturday.
