Arsene Wenger says contract talks with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have been shelved until the end of the season.
Both players have less than 15 months left on their contracts and have also been linked with moves away from the Emirates.
Sanchez has not said anything in regards to his contract, but Ozil has said his commitment to Arsenal remains if Wenger stays, a notion he has since gone back on.
When asked about the future of Sanchez, Wenger told beIN Sports: “At the moment we have not got an agreement
“We have decided to focus on the end of the season and talk about it in the summer, it is the same situation with Ozil because once you don’t find an agreement and it [the negotiation] lasts, it is not good so it is better you get it out and sit down in the summer.”
Wenger has previously said that he would rather let both players run down their contracts and leave for free in 2018 than sell them for a fee in the summer.
