Wenger confident Alexis, Ozil will renew Arsenal contracts

London, April 3 (IANS) Arsenal’s French coach Arsene Wenger said he is “confident” that Chilean Alexis Sanchez and German Mesut Ozil will renew their contracts with the English football side next summer.

Asked about the contract renewal of both players, the coach said on Saturday “that will be done in the break, in the summer,” reports Efe.

“Yes, they have two-year contracts. When I talk to them they are happy and they want to extend their contracts so I don’t think it is a problem,” Wenger added.

Alexis moved from FC Barcelona in the summer of 2014 in a four-year contract, while Ozil signed a five-year contract to move from Real Madrid in 2013.

Arsenal is currently in third place in the English Premier League standings behind leaders Leicester City and runners-up Tottenham.
