Arsene Wenger: Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil could leave Arsenal in January

Man City

The prospect of losing the £42.5million signing from Real Madrid on a free transfer is too much for Wenger to contemplate with Alexis Sanchez also running down his deal.

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

Asked if claims Ozil could be sold in January were true, Wenger said: "We have envisaged every solution, it is possible we might sell in January".

Wenger did brush off suggestions that Sanchez's mental fatigue would be a drawn out issue, and insists the attacker will be fully focused on Arsenal's success.

"I always said that when we didn't find an agreement previous year that doesn't necessarily mean that the player will leave".

"Both players look happy here, overall I hope the situation can be turned round".

Ozil is back in team training this week after a knee inflammation and is available for Saturday's Premier League game at Watford, while Sanchez will not be back at the club until Friday after returning late from Chile's World Cup qualifier against Brazil. "It was a very physical game [against Brazil]".

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

Arsene Wenger has cast doubt over whether Alexis Sanchez will be involved for their Premier League clash against Watford this weekend, after the Chile global received "special treatment" on worldwide duty.

Wilshere has yet to make a Premier League appearance this season after recovering from a broken ankle but has played well in the Europa League and Carabao Cup.

Sanchez was denied a deadline day move to Manchester City in the summer as the Gunners stood firm in their desire to keep hold of their star player, but with a plethora of teams already circling for the 28-year-old's signature Alves has thrown his support for the Chilean to play his football at Parc des Princes next season.
