The fans of Arsenal are all excited with the club’s brilliant start of season after the Gunners came from behind to beat Leicester City in a game that ended 4-3 win.
While the fans are still celebrating the Friday wins, they are some other indications that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are both on the verge of departing from the Emirates, as revealed by the club legend Martin Keown
In recent time, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have both been strong link with a move away from Arsenal, as they have both failed to sign a renewal deal at under manager Arsene Wenger.
Report has it last week that German international midfielder Ozil told his agent to broker a deal with Barcelona regarding a move from the Emirates. Although, the report has died down since it was revealed last week but it looks the ace is frustrated under Wenger after facing so many disappointment over the years.
On the other hand, Sanchez also fueled the reports that he want a move away from Arsenal, as he said officially that he will like to take part of Champions League games again this term. And he is heavily link with a move to join PSG who already seal signature for Neymar.
Keown has made know his mind what he thinks about the players at Arsenal. He said as quoted by BBC Radio’s 5 Live:
“If they can get £50m for him, they would have taken it, would’t they?
“I don’t believe they’ve had that kind of offer, he [Sanchez] has one year left, and can Arsenal afford him anyway?
“There’s talk of £15m a season in wages, that’s £60m. I think Arsene Wenger thinks, ‘I’ve got him now, I’ve got him almost on the cheap, he’s done really well for me, let’s keep him for one more year – that’s 50 per cent of my time I’m going to be the manager of Arsenal.
“Ozil, as well, he’s another one. He’s seemed to have sort of paled into the background a little bit now.
“I think both players are heading for the exit door, and they’ll do it when Wenger decides not when they decide.”
