Wenger: Sanchez, Ozil could leave Arsenal in January

Both Ozil and Sanchez are being linked with major moves away from the club, while Arsenal are still keen on securing new deals for the pair.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says contract talks are "going well" with Mesut Ozil, but "it's possible" he and Alexis Sanchez will leave in January. The fact that we didn't find agreement previous year doesn't mean he wants to leave.

"It is possible", he said when asked at his weekly press conference whether either or both could leave the club in January.

The stalemate leaves Arsenal facing the possibility of their two star players departing for free and Wenger conceded selling mid-season is one solution.

The Gunners face Watford in their first game after the global break on Saturday lunchtime, but they are dealing with something of an injury crisis.

However, Ozil's agent Dr Erkut Sogut said earlier in the week that the Germany worldwide wanted to play in the Premier League for another two to three years and that talks with Arsenal "are going in a positive way".

Sanchez was part of the Chile team that were eliminated from the World Cup on Tuesday - in part due to an error for Colombia by his Arsenal team-mate David Ospina - and will be assessed for both his mental and physical state when he returns to England this afternoon.

"Sanchez is a lion who wants to play football and I do not expect him to sulk".

"Jack can open space, he can play in tight areas and can get out of them".

Arsenal fans already upset at Sanchez failing to commit himself to the club are now even more frustrated following Chile's World Cup exit.

Asked if he was anxious about Sanchez's mental state, Wenger said: "I will have to speak to him".

"I will be happy for him wherever he goes".
