Tottenham Legend Glen Hoddle believes Arsenal could lose Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Speculations have surrounded the duo’s future at Arsenal, with reports linking them with a move away from the club.
In the summer, reports in Spain claimed Sanchez was unhappy at the Emirates and wanted a move to a club where he has a better chance of winning titles. Juventus were linked with the Chile international but Arsenal were unwilling to do business.
Ozil was also linked with a move to Bayern Munich but Arsenal were also not prepared to listen to offers for the German.
Hoddle believes the duo’s future at Arsenal is still in doubt and it depends on the club’s performance in the Champions League.
Over the years, Arsenal have struggled to get past the round of 16 of the UCL competition and Hoddle believes the duo could leave the club if things don’t improve.
“Arsenal’s repeated failure in this competition under Arsene Wenger since they competed in the final in 2006 and the semi-finals in 2009 is more than a curiosity now,” Hoddle wrote in The Daily Mail( via HITC Sport). “It is becoming a threat to keeping their best players.
“Ozil and Sanchez have yet to commit to new deals with the Gunners . No doubt they will wait to see if Arsenal can compete rather than just make up the numbers in the knock-out stages before they decide where their future lies.”
However, Arsenal fans have no reason to panic as the two midfielders are on the verge of signing new contracts at the club and we expect to still see them at the club for a long time, irrespective of team’s performance in the Champions League this season.
