Double boost for Arsenal after negotiations progress

Arsenal duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are close to signing new contract extensions with the North London club, according to The Mirror.

The attacking pair are critical to the Gunners’ chances of success this season and are regarded as two of the most effective players in the Premier League.

Ozil has overcome inconsistency to become Arsene Wenger’s main creative talent in the final third and ended last season on top of the assists table, providing 19 in the Premier League alone.

Sanchez’s dynamism and goalscoring threat have endeared him to the Emirates Stadium faithful since he swapped Barcelona for the North London club.

Both the German and the Chilean have been touted with new deals for a while, but the latest report suggests that Arsenal have made progress in their attempts to get the star duo to commit to the club.

A double deal would be a real boost for the North London club and ensure two of the side’s best players will play at the Emirates Stadium for the foreseeable future.
