Wenger rules out Sanchez, Ozil exits in January

Barcelona star Arda Turan could be used in an exchange deal with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil

An upturn in form for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil at Arsenal may be down to the approaching transfer window, says Emmanuel Petit.

Ozil's contract at the Emirates expires at the end of this season.

Ozil, who is now on a weekly wage of £140,000, is likely to demand a significant wage hike alongside a huge signing-on fee in order to prolong his Gunners stay beyond the summer.

Ozil is in the final knockings of his contract at the Emirates Stadium and looks highly unlikely to commit his future to Arsene Wenger's side, who suffered a 3-1 defeat by United on Saturday (2 December), ending their run of 12 straight home victories thanks in no small part to David de Gea. However, Arsenal are said to prefer a sale overseas than to Premier League rivals.

Electric taxi gets approval to work across London
Unlike the previous taxi, the vehicle's multi-filter system works to remove gases and particles from the incoming air. Now it needs to persuade its customers that the new machine can survive in the cut and thrust of city driving.

The World Cup victor is out of contract next summer, and free to leave on a free transfer.

But with Arsene Wenger unwilling to let go of the maestro on a free, he may have to sell him to his old nemesis Mourinho in January if a deal is not struck.

However, that doesn't always seem to be the case with the Premier League giants looking to sign one of their top targets in January itself rather than wait till next season and potentially lose out on the prospect. Arsenal sit 5th in the standings, only a point off Liverpool in 4th. But that doesn't stop them from being occasionally economical in their signings, wishing to hold out for better deals or as with recent context, choose to sign a player for free rather than pay upfront. The Red Devils already have Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Juan Mata, both players similar to the German in both style of play and calibre. It may be a wise move for all parties involved that Ozil stays put at the Emirates.
