Why Arsenal suspended contract talks with Alexis, Ozil – Wenger


Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has revealed that the club has suspended contract talks with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez until the end of the season.

Wenger said it was for the team to concentrate on the remaining league fixtures and their FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.

The futures of Ozil and Alexis had been the subject of speculation, with both players having 15 months left on their current deals.

Wenger, in an interview with beIN Sports, said: “Look, at the moment we have not an agreement (with Sanchez). We have decided to focus on the end of the season and talk about it during the summer.

“It is the same situation with (Mesut) Ozil because in the situation, once you don’t find an agreement and it lasts it is not good so it’s better you get it out and sit down during the summer.”

Wenger also confirmed that the ankle injury Alexis suffered at West Brom was not as serious as feared.

He added: “I don’t know because he left for Chile and in South America they have a decisive period now for the qualifiers for the World Cup and they have very important games. The last news I have is that it was only the kick.

“We didn’t know after the kick if his ankle ligament was damaged or not because it was swollen and it was difficult to assess after the game but the last news we have is positive.”
