Arsene Wenger believes Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil DO want to stay at Arsenal.

Having confirmed his own status into next season – possibly beyond – is ‘not sorted completely’ and playing down Alexis’ comments suggesting he could be tempted to join Chelsea the Arsenal boss was upbeat on the chances of keeping both.

I think we all know by now that Alexis and Ozil are out of contract in 2018 but contract talks have been put on hold until the end of the season with the Gunners’ focus on finishing the campaign strongly.

However, Wenger said he ‘personally believes’ they want to stay and is hopeful Arsenal can ‘find an agreement’ to make that happen.

Wenger was quoted from his news conference by the BBC as saying.

‘I personally believe both of them want to stay and I hope the club will find an agreement with them.’

Wenger feels an agreement would be easier to reach at the end of the season and their future situations were ‘not an immediate concern.’
