Arsene Wenger rules out selling Sanchez and Özil in January

At the moment, as long as they are here, they have to give their best for the team and for the club.

Both Ozil and Sanchez are in the final year of their contracts and will be able to discuss terms with other clubs in January ahead of a potential free transfer at the end of the season.

"In my head, they stay until the end of the season, unless something unbelievable happens". Unless something incredible happens, I don't think that will change.

It was also put to Wenger that he has substituted Alexandre Lacazette 10 times in the Premier League this season, but the manager insisted there is nothing untoward behind that statistic.

"If I think it right and in his best interests for him to stay here, then I fight 100 per cent for him to stay because he's a top-quality guy and is back fit now". "Yes, I rule it out", Wenger said at his prematch press conference when asked about potential departures. Will they stay longer?

Mesut Ozil to Manchester United on a free looks a shoo-in.

Arsenal have an excellent chance to cement their position in the top four when we entertain Huddersfield at the Emirates tomorrow night. "We can deal with the rest after this game".

Meanwhile, Sanchez is expected to join Manchester City - whether in January or next summer.

The German worldwide is inside the final year of his Gunners contract at present, and is strongly linked with the exit door. "You know why? Because they've got players who perform, and play well. They have a fighting spirit that makes them risky to every team".
