Arsenal are set to keep Mesut Ozil at the club beyond the January transfer window – because there is no firm interest in the attacker, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the north London side could be set to keep hold of the 29-year-old attacker until at least the end of the season because there has been no concrete interest in his services.

The same report claims that the situation could then pave the way for Alexis Sanchez to leave the north London side in the January transfer window.

Both players are out of contract at the end of the season and it remains to be seen whether either of them will sign new deals.

Ozil and Sanchez were both heavily linked with moves away from The Emirates during the summer, but neither player sealed a transfer.

The same report claims that Arsenal accepted a bid for Sanchez from Manchester City late in the summer transfer window but the Gunners refused to sell because Arsene Wenger failed to find an adequate replacement in time.

Arsenal suffered their third Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday when they squandered a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 to Watford at Vicarage Road.
