Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that the club don't intend to resume negotiations with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil until the end of the campaign.

The pair are currently contracted to the Gunners until the end of 2017/18 season and a contract standoff during the summer could see them being sold.

Wenger has continued to maintain uncertainty over his future beyond the current campaign but insists that the club will restart discussions with both Ozil and Sanchez in the summer months.

"At the moment we do not have an agreement [with Sanchez]. We've decided to focus on the end of the season and we will talk about it during the summer," he told beIN Sports.

"It is the same situation with Ozil because once you don't find an agreement and it lasts, it's not good. So it's better you get it out and sit down in the summer."

Sanchez has been hugely instrumental for Arsenal this term with 18 goals and nine assists in the top flight whilst Ozil has been average despite contributing five goals and four assists in 22 games.
