Wenger spoke recently
"Yes. There is still an opportunity for him to stay. We are more optimistic than the summer.
Liverpool & Ozil signed in 2013. Coutinho under long term contract goes for £145m....Ozil walking for free. Well run club apparently.— TimeForWexit (@TheMightyGambon) January 6, 2018
"These guys want to win, and they want to make money as well. So they want a combination of the two that big clubs can give them. Incidentally he's won trophies with us. So he wants to fight as well for the Premier League, that's normal when you are at that level.
"It looks like Sanchez will not extend his contract, but we want to keep Jack and if we have an opportunity maybe to keep Ozil, the rebuild will be less deep than if all three left."
Would prefer Ozil at United than Sanchez.— Aysha Ridzuan (@ayshardzn) January 12, 2018
As for Sanchez, his move to Manchester City looks increasingly possible by the day, however recent reports have suggested that the ex-Barcelona man could move to Manchester United with Jose Mourinho looking to get one over on his cross city rival Pep Guardiola.
As for Arsenal, the transfer window has been a busy time for them of late, with the departures of Francis Coquelin and Tafari Moore, along with the arrival of Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos.
If Sanchez were to leave the Emirates this month, the Gunners could well dip into the transfer market to sign a world-class player to replace the Chilean.
