Arsene Wenger admits Gunners ARE considering selling Mesut Ozil in January

And when it was suggested that Arsenal might cut their losses on the pair in January, the manager added: "Once you are in our kind of situation, we have envisaged every solution yes".

Dani Alves has admitted he would be delighted if his former Barcelona teammate Alexis Sanchez made the move from Arsenal to join him at Paris Saint-Germain.

However, Wenger insists the lack of extension yet does not mean Ozil won't stay long term at Arsenal.

Despite heaping praise on his national side, Alves admitted it is never easy to line-up against players of Sanchez's ability, as he added: "It's always hard to come up against players like Alexis, with this quality and level but we've been concentrating over the whole game and we've done a great job".

Ozil is back in team training this week after a knee inflammation and is available for Saturday's Premier League game at Watford, while Sanchez will not be back at the club until Friday after returning late from Chile's World Cup qualifier against Brazil. "It's possible", Wenger said.

"I will have to speak to him", Wenger said. I hope the situation can be turned around. Arsenal are now six points off the Premier League leaders after signing just two players this summer - striker Alexandre Lacazette and left-back Sead Kolasinac.

"I think he's still off it but there are signs that he's getting there".

Arsene Wenger has cast doubt over whether Alexis Sanchez will be involved for their Premier League clash against Watford this weekend, after the Chile global received "special treatment" on worldwide duty.

Indeed, he's not only one of Arsenal's only world-class talents, he's among the best players in the Premier League.

"I am more concerned that yesterday afternoon I watched the whole game, Brazil against Chile, to see how hard the game was and I must say he got some special treatment in this game".

"I don't think [he does need to leave]". "He's very close now to being considered like anybody else".

England qualified comfortably for next summer's tournament in Russian Federation but the team were criticised for a lack of creativity in their last two games. "I don't see Jack being fully fit and not going to the World Cup".

Wenger agreed that Wilshere could be the ideal solution for Gareth Southgate's side. "[England] have plenty of good players but he is maybe more of a No. 10 than any other player".
