Arsene Wenger claims Arsenal star duo of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will sign new deals after the end of the season. The Frenchman remains confident the two attackers are committed to the club and suggested their contract situation is not a problem for the Gunners.
The German international arrived at the Emirates from Real Madrid in 2013, while their league rivals Barcelona wanted to offload Sanchez, which allowed the north London club to secure his services in 2014. Both players will have two years left on their contract after the end of the 2015/16 season.
"That will be done in the break, in the summer. There is nothing [at the moment]," Wenger said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
"I am confident they are happy and would want to stay. They have two years left on their contracts. They look happy. When I talk to them they are happy and they want to extend their contracts so I don't think it is a problem."
Arsenal are third in the Premier League table with 55 points from 30 matches, 11 points behind league leaders Leicester City, who have played one game more than the Gunners. Ozil believes the Emirates club "screwed up" their title challenge and has urged Wenger to further strengthen the squad in the summer transfer window.
The Frenchman has criticised the former Real star for his comments and suggested Arsenal are still in the title race. Wenger said, "We will talk about that yes, of course. The statement is not welcome because we have to believe, no matter if it just one chance in 100. We only have a real chance if we believe."
"You want to be fair and honest, but you want to look forward as well. The worst thing for us would be not to believe and then, if we had a good run, it was available or possible.
"The worst thing in life is to have the wrong beliefs. You have to make sure that you give your best and, at the end, accept that if somebody is better than you that you have given your best.
"I believe that we have to make sure that we play with passion until the end. That is the best way to get the supporters behind us. I will make sure they don't feel [like they have given up on the title]."
