Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez’s contract extension are both vital for the success of Arsenal, that’s according to club legend Thierry Henry.
Both players, whose current contract with the club expires at the end of the 2017/2018 season have been in fine form this season and the fact they are yet to commit to the club has left fans concerned.
Speaking to Skysports, Henry said Arsene Wenger and the club must do all they can to secure the future of both players.
“Arsene Wenger and the club are clever enough to know that they have to secure those deals.
“Are they going to stay? I want them to, but you don’t know what is happening behind closed doors. We both know how important Mesut Ozil is, and even more now how important Alexis Sanchez is. Him playing through the middle has made the real difference this year.”
“What he can do is amazing, on and off the ball. If you want to build a future, they are the future of the club. You build the team around those guys,” Henry added.
Arsene Wenger is hopeful both players would sign a contract extension.
We hope so too. For the sake of world peace.
