Arsene Wenger says duo Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will still be at Arsenal after the close of the January transfer window. 

The pair have been at the centre of a debate over their futures at the club for well over a year, with Sanchez close to leaving the club for Manchester City on Deadline Day in August.

Since the summer, reports have linked Ozil with a move to Manchester United, while there has seemingly been no progress on a new deal for either of the players. 

Speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Huddersfield this week, Wenger was asked if he thought they would still be Arsenal players come February 1, when the January window will be closed.

The Frenchman replied: “Yes, of course.

“I rule it out. I don’t think every day about that.

As long as they are here they give their best for the club. In my head they stay until the end of the season, unless something unbelievable happens I don’t see that changes.”
