Arsenal prepare talks with Star duo

Sanchez, Ozil set for contract talks

Arsenal will start off negotiations with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil over fresh contracts at the club. The pair have been fundamental to the Gunners' success in recent seasons.

According to The Telegraph, the star pairing are likely to be rewarded improved contracts with their previous deals due to expire in the summer of 2018.

Sanchez had been linked with a possible switch to Juventus over the summer before the Gunners insisted that the player was not for sale.

On the other hand, Ozil was thought to be unsettled at the Emirates until the North London giants opted to recruit Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi prior to the transfer deadline.

The reports also adds that English trio Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will have to wait abit longer for new contracts as there are still doubts over their futures.

Wilshere is currently plying his trade on loan with Bournemouth after it became evident that his playing time would be restricted under Arsene Wenger, whilst Kieran Gibbs is nowhere to be seen with Nacho Monreal in control of the left-back position over the past year.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has got a regular chance in the starting line-up this season, but the lack of a cutting edge to his gameplay has brought frustration among the club's faithful.

Arsenal have made an average start to their Premier League campaign and are currently placed seventh in the league standings.
