Report: Arsenal close to nailing down Ozil and Alexis to new deals

Chelsea will try to sell midfielder Cesc Fabregas when the transfer window reopens in January...

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail claims West Ham are concerned they spent too much on left-back ARTHUR MASUAKU, for whom they paid Greek side Olympiacos £6.2million during the summer. Steve doesn't always get it right in the Sunday Mirror, but he does give out some juicy lines on London clubs.

In naming his ultimate XI, Sanchez revealed that he thought the best player of all time was Ronaldo - the two-time World Cup winning Brazilian.

However, with Aaron Ramsey set to return to fitness in the coming weeks, it appears Oxlade-Chamberlain's time in the starting team is coming to an end.

He added: "I think we have a better chance, yes".

Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are contracted to Arsenal until 2018.

Even so, keeping such key players content on long-term contracts is crucial for any team seeking to challenge for the biggest honours. All three players are having to wait on new offers this season.

"The squad is between 24 and 30, basically". That means that Oxlade-Chamberlain would be further down the pecking order, and is unlikely to keep playing as regularly as he has been so far.

The decision to start Arsenal's Colombian shot stopper backfired for Wenger when he scored a calamitous own goal as the Greek side took home three points from Emirates Stadium.

A sending off for Olivier Giroud will undoubtedly anger Wenger who brought the Frenchman on to contribute to Arsenal's attack. I think in the end, we were unlucky to not take the three points. There's few deep midfielders in the Premier League who record as many assists or chances created as Cazorla and though he is positionally defensive-minded, his on-the-ball play is very attacking.
