Wenger open to Sanchez exit

Arsene Wenger has rustled the Arsenal fanbase yet again after revealing that both Sanchez and Ozil could leave in January. "When you are in our situation you envisage any solution".

"That is my understanding", Wenger said.

"The player looks happy. At the moment, we are not close enough to announce anything".

Sanchez's Chile failed to qualify for next summer's tournament in Russian Federation after losing 3-0 to Brazil on Tuesday night, and the forward wasn't expected back in London until early Thursday evening.

"I don't think so", said the Frenchman when asked if Wilshere had to leave in January. "Yesterday, I watched the whole game and I must say he got some special treatment", Wenger said.

"I believe he and Ramsey are winners and will want to focus on winning things".

Arsene Wenger discusses how Arsenal suffered another injury setback as Shkodran Mustafi was injured during a World Cup qualifier for Germany.

On Watford manager Marco Silva, 40, who will lead his team out against Arsenal, Wenger said: "He has impressed". You have always to set targets when you're a football player. "He has done very well". The England defender spent last term on loan at Middlersbrough and has only made one appearance this season, against Doncaster Rovers in the Carabao Cup, but Wenger is looking forward to his progress.

"Jack is in the best form I've seen him in for a long time", Wenger said.

Wenger might have given them an opening after admitting there is possibility that the two could be could.

"If he keeps playing as he is he will go to the World Cup".

"I don't think he will be available before the next global break".

"If you want to make a big career it's a bit of a roller-coaster, because you are sometimes on a high then three days later you're on a low".
