Former Arsenal boss George Graham is confident Arsenal will convince Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to sign new deals.
The duo are currently in talks with the club over a new contract but it has dragged on for longer than expected. Some reports are even claiming talks can go either way which has got many Arsenal fans into panic mode as no fan wants the club to lose any of them.
Wenger recently calmed fears by claiming Arsenal have what it takes to keep the players beyond their current contracts and Graham has supported the manager claims by saying he believes the duo will sign a new contract at the Emirates.
He told talkSPORT: “You know what players are like and I think they’ll be looking around at other players who are on around £250,000 week.
“It’s going to be tough negotiations.
“Arsenal are a great club, a fantastic club. They’re up there every year and I still think they’ll sign, but they will drive a hard bargain.”
Gooners will be hoping Graham’s words come true. The two players are star players in our team and as fans our priority would be to keep them to enable us challenge for trophies.
However, i are hoping we reach an agreement with them before the end of the season as they would be in a stronger position should talks delay until next summer and i’m sure Wenger would want to avoid such scenerio.
