Arsene Wenger insists the club will be working on agreeing two deals which should be confirmed this summer.

Arguably Arsenal’s biggest signings over the past decade, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez were welcomed to the Emirates stadium with much excitement following their moves from Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.

The duo have lived up to the hype with Sanchez leading the team as topscorer last season while Ozil remains on the verge of setting a new record of assists in a Premier League campaign this term.

According to Wenger, the Gunners’ priority this summer will be to commit their two biggest stars to a long-term future at the club through new deals and a likely pay-rise.

“When I talk to them, they are happy. They want to extend their contracts, so I don’t think it is a problem.” the Frenchman said

“Both of those [contract for Ozil and Sanchez] will be done in the [summer] break. I am confident.”

Following Arsenal’s mid-season collapse which has seen them go from favourites to win the Premier League title to trailing Leicester City by 11 points, there have been rumours about a possible exit for the duo.
