Arsene Wenger: Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez may be sold in January

Arsenal contract rebels Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil could yet leave the club in the January transfer window, as there are no discussions planned with the pair over their future.

It's expected Sanchez will leave Arsenal at the end of the season, which will lead to a scramble to sign the forward. "I always said the fact that we didn't find an agreement past year doesn't mean the player will necessarily leave".

"Both players are happy here.

It is possible", he said when asked at his weekly press conference whether either or both could leave the club in January.

On the possibilty of Arsenal selling Ozil, Wenger said: "We have envisaged every solution, it is possible we might sell in January".

The Gunners face Watford in their first game after the worldwide break on Saturday lunchtime, but they are dealing with something of an injury crisis. "At the moment, we are not close enough to announce anything".

However, Ozil's agent Dr Erkut Sogut said earlier in the week that the Germany global wanted to play in the Premier League for another two to three years and that talks with Arsenal "are going in a positive way".

Wenger's stars Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey are both going to miss out on the 2018 World Cup after Chile and Wales lost in their qualifiers over the past week. I hope the situation can be turned around.

"When you don't have the World Cup, you focus on your club".

"The message from Wenger to Sanchez today was: "Give me until January and then you can go", Keown told the Daily Mail.

Wenger might have given them an opening after admitting there is possibility that the two could be could. "I believe that Jack is in the best form that I have seen him for a long time".
