Are Arsenal's Ozil and Sanchez playing for new contracts?

However, Gunners fans would be naive to think Alexis isn't keeping one eye on the January transfer window, with the Chilean reportedly eager to complete a move away from the Emirates before the end of the season.

There is a huge likelihood that the pair are playing their hearts out in their bid to attract interest from potential suitors with their futures being up in the air, but there could well be the possibility that they are fighting to stay also.

Arsenalmanager Arsene Wenger has publicly stated Alexis, as well as fellow contract renegade Mesut Ozil, will not be leaving the club in January.

Manchester City are reportedly planning to make a "big" bid for the services of Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez when the transfer window reopens next month.

According to The Telegraph, Arsenal are still adamant that they will need to secure a replacement before selling Sanchez to City and will require a fee "in excess of £50m" in order for the deal to happen.

Arsenal stars took the opportunity to give back to the community on Tuesday afternoon as they paid a visit to various hospitals in London.

"Once people see that they are behind you, everybody knows in the stadium that he is a good football player and at the moment he shows that he can fight". They have a part to play in that as well.

However, Arsenal boss Wenger believes Ozil's form is a by-product of his return to full fitness after an injury-hit start to the 2017-18 Premier League season.
