Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger, has stated that he may have no option but to sell star players Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil when the transfer window reopens in January.
Both the Chilean and German are out of contract at the end of the season and are yet to agree new deals with the North London outfit.
They will leave the Emirates Stadium for free if things remain like this meaning January will be Arsenal’s last opportunity to cash in on their two most high-profile players.
Wenger told a press conference ahead of Arsenal’s game against Watford on Saturday, “It is possible.
“Once you’re in our kind of situation, we have envisaged every solution, yes.”
Asked if Arsenal had set a deadline for contract negotiations with the pair to conclude, Wenger replied, “No. Not at the moment.”
28-year-old Sanchez joined the Gunners from Barcelona in July 2014, a year after Ozil, 28, arrival from Real Madrid.
Sanchez has been linked with a number of major clubs, among them Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
Ozil, meanwhile, is reported to have attracted interest from Manchester United, who are managed by his former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho.
