With all those rumours making the circles presenting Manchester United being interested in signing Mesut Ozil once the winter transfer window opens, Arsene Wenger couldn’t avoid a relevant question in his Press conference ahead of Arsenal’s game against Newcastle.
No, we have never been approached by Man United anyway, so I don’t see why that came up and who found that. It’s always something that has been created. He will stay until the end of the season for sure, the rest is open
the Gunners manager said, clearing out that United have not made any move regarding Ozil’s transfer in January.
Next, Wenger was asked about Jack Wilshere, another player whose current deal expires next summer.
I will talk to him. I said the end of December and we are at the beginning of December, so it’s true that it’s not far, but I wanted to see as well how much he can contribute and last physically. It is important as well for him to be happy here
the Frenchman said. Last, talking about Alexis Sanchez, he insisted that the Chilean remains focused on working hard and giving his best, no matter if his numbers this season are nowhere near those of last season.
Yes, he is focused in training. It is true at the moment it doesn’t come off as much as it did before, but you go through periods where it is like that and I must say he fights and always tries to make a difference. Maybe when you are less successful in your finishing, you want to force the game a little bit, but overall I cannot fault his commitment or his attitude at all
Wenger’s comment was.
