Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez’s long-term futures at Arsenal are in doubt with the club having failed to agree terms on new contracts with the duo over the summer, according to reports from The Times.
The German and Chilean are two of the Gunners’ key men and have both been hits since their big money moves from Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
Ozil topped the Londoners’ assist chart with 19 in league action last term, while Sanchez notched 13 goals, leaving him behind only top scorer Olivier Giroud.
However, despite their importance to Arsene Wenger and the club as a whole, reports claim that their futures at the Emirates Stadium are surrounded by question marks, with Arsenal having failed to tie them down to new contracts.
It’s understood that talks have been on-going since last September with both players, yet agreements are not close.
Negotiations will intensify after the close of the transfer window, but with the duo in the last two years of their current deals, should they be swayed towards moves the Premier League giants will find it hard to attract big fees.
Arsenal have largely been successful in tying key players down to new contracts, with Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere both secured long-term, making Ozil and Sanchez’s situations a real worry.
