Uncertainty remains over the futures of star-duo at Arsenal

Uncertainty remains to loom over the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal football club.

The two most expensive transfer signings of the North London club have two years left on their respective deals and both have been reportedly involved in discussions with the club over new contracts for quite some time.

Recently various media outlets have provided conflicting reports on the nature of the ongoing discussions between the club and the duo.

A report from the Times, today, suggested that Arsenal are facing a fight to tie down Ozil and Sanchez to new deals and have placed the contract talks on hold until summer.

However, a conflicting report from Evening Standard has claimed that the Gunners are confident that both Ozil and Sanchez will commit their long-term futures to the club.

Both players are currently waiting to see if Arsenal qualify for the Champions League for the next season, and they also want assurance from Arsene Wenger over his summer transfer plans.

The Gunners are currently placed fourth, four points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United, with five games left to play in the season.

Ozil arrived in a £42 million deal from Real Madrid in 2013 while Sanchez arrived, a year later, for £35 million from Barcelona.

The Chilean has recently been linked with a move to Bayern Munich.
