Ozil could stay, Sanchez unlikely: Wenger

Alexis Sanchez

GETTYArsenal will sell Alexis Sanchez in January if they can find a replacement

Conte fears that Manchester United and Manchester City are out to "kill" Chelsea by signing the Chilean International this January.

Wenger sounded optimistic that a breakthrough could be imminent in contract talks with Ozil, saying he feels more confident now than in the summer that a deal could be reached with the German.

It's not a nice situation for Arsenal, but Wenger was quick to remind people that Sanchez is still his player for now, even if it meant denying everyone the answer to whether he'd prefer to play for Pep or Jose.

They're actively trying to hijack Manchester City's bid for Alexis Sanchez but the feeling is that the Chilean has his heart set on the blue side of Manchester.

"It's unethical to speak about other clubs' players and the manager has always said that".

Carillion warning spurs pensions crisis talks
The company is thought to require at least £210m in short-term funding to continue operating and implement a turnaround plan. Such a plan would leave its pension scheme, or the Pension Protection Fund, as a big shareholder.

Asked about Sanchez, he said: "I understand completely why you ask this question; it's your job".

Addressing the reported interest in right-sided specialist Malcom, Wenger said, per Goal's Chris Burton: "He is a good player, but nothing is happening".

The Frenchman with a degree in economics believes players running their contracts down will become more prevalent. They are the best two players Arsenal have and when they are not there, the difference in their attacking play is obvious. I'm focused on Liverpool, believe me. "Hopefully we can improve our level because I really think it was good". That one tiny blimp did eventually end up putting a stop to any move for Alexis Sanchez. However, since Arsenal were not able to get Thomas Lemar from Monaco, they were not ready to sanction the sale of one of their best players without a replacement.

Jose Mourinho has saluted Alexis Sanchez as a "phenomenal" player and did not deny Manchester United want to sign the Arsenal star. The Brazilian will cost around 45 million pounds which in the current transfer market is quite a steal if you consider that Kylian Mbappe went for 186 million pounds.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been talking about Aleixs Sanchez. Okay the club wants £50million, £60m, because they want to replace me, they have to spend £50m or £60m, it will not happen, so I wait and I take a chunk of that contract in signing-on fee.
