Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger has said his two key players, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil may be sold when the transfer window opens in January 2018.
The German and Chilean internationals will be out of contract at the close of the season and at the moment are yet to agree to new deals with the North London outfit.
There are indications that they will leave the Emirates Stadium for free if things remains the way they are which entails January will be Arsenal’s last opportunity to cash in on two of the club’s most high profile players.
Wenger told a press conference ahead of Arsenal’s game against Watford on Saturday, “It is possible.
“Once you’re in our kind of situation, we have envisaged every solution, yes.”
Asked if Arsenal had set a deadline for contract negotiations with the pair to conclude, Wenger replied, “No. Not at the moment.”
28-year-old Sanchez joined the Gunners from Barcelona in July 2014, a year after Ozil, 28, arrival from Real Madrid.
Sanchez has been linked with a number of major clubs, among them Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
Ozil, meanwhile, is reported to have attracted interest from Manchester United, who are managed by his former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho
