Martin Keown has told Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to consider selling both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in the summer transfer window.

Wenger committed his future to the north London side on Wednesday as he signed a new two-year contract to keep him at the club until the summer of 2019 at the earliest.

The futures of both Ozil and Sanchez have been relentless sources of speculation in recent months due to the fact that both of their current contracts are due to expire next summer.

Both players are thought to be in talks with the club about penning new deals but there is yet to be any official confirmation from the Gunners.

And Arsenal legend Keown has suggested that the north London side should consider cashing in on the two star players in the summer.

Keown told BBC Radio 5 live: “If they have to say cheerio to those two players, then that is the right decision.

“They have been overindulged at times this season and they let Arsenal down in the period when they lost twice to Bayern Munich, conceding 10 goals. That is the level of the problem.”
