Like Sanchez, the former Real Madrid midfielder has no intention of signing a new deal and is out of contract next summer.

Arsene Wenger has rustled the Arsenal fanbase yet again after revealing that both Sanchez and Ozil could leave in January.

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

'I always said the fact that we didn't find an agreement past year doesn't mean the player will necessarily leave.

The Gunners pulled the plug on an agreement to sell Sanchez to Manchester City on deadline day after being unable to secure the signing of Monaco's Thomas Lemar. "It is not happening at the moment" - and Merson's return to football with fourth-tier Welsh club Caerau of Maesteg - "We talk about professional football here".

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".

Sanchez meanwhile saw his Chile side crash out of World Cup qualifying with defeat to Brazil with the 28-year-old coming in for some physical treatment. "Mentally, I will have to assess the situation when he comes back tomorrow".

"I believe he and Ramsey are winners and will want to focus on winning things".

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

Another possible departure from Arsenal in January is Jack Wilshere, after reports indicated he was considering leaving the club in order to force his way into England's World Cup squad.

"Jack can open space, he can play in tight areas and can get out of them".

"I will be happy for him wherever he goes".
